This is a very historic building if a little run down, could do with a wash and brush up. We had breakfast there twice during our visit to Newcastle. Food typical Wetherspoons fodder. Custoner service very good. Will visit again.

My husband and I were visiting Newcastle doing a bit on the family tree and came across The Union Rooms in the centre. It's a big building with lots of rooms. The world cup football was on but we went upstairs for our meal and had The Manager's Special of the steak for £5.99 which was really tasty and better... More

Met here with a group: Reasonable beer, nice building – got very busy at lunch time due to the number of stage and hen parties rolling into town. Good service from the staff.

The Union Rooms is a large and good looking pub with different areas to give it some element of cosiness. Unusually for a Wetherspoons there were lots of bar staff - so although the pub was busy the service was quick and efficient.

Hello, Thanks for your review, I've passed your feedback on to the team and hopefully next time you come to Newcastle you can look forward to an even better visit to us. Thanks for letting us know about your experience, the soups are really lovely but perhaps we could look at a bit more variety! More
