Great menu with a fantastic selection of meat dishes. I had the Scotch fillet and it melted in your mouth. A great selection of accompaniments and wide range of beers on tap.

We have been to Finn McCools at the Northern Star on a couple of occasions and really enjoyed our night but this night the smell of cigarette smoke was atrocious!! It was all through the restaurant there was no escaping it. Having said that as usual the food was tasty. I was a bit puzzled at my steak and salad... More

We dropped into the Northern Star for lunch, and grabbed a couple of board specials. Well cooked bangers and mash, and a pasta dish with smoky bacon; delicious, and swilled down with a couple of pints of Ireland's best, ($5.50). Cheap meals and drinks at a standard well above many restaurants.

After the Newie Race's, we went out for dinner on Beaumont Street as there was not much open we walked into this Pub, the place was empty, but a Good Menu Range. Highly recommended this Pub for a Meal

We often drop in for a good burger and a beer or two. The Northern has a great range of James Squire especially their 'black' and at the right price... very casual and always consistent with the their food.

The rooms are clean, large and comfortable. Bar fridge and tea coffee making facilities provided. The decor is somewhat tired looking. Ensuite in need of tender loving care. The hotel is located on a busy Beaumont Str, & live entertainment downstairs, ear plugs are recommended to get a night of sleep. The hotel was excellently located for the Jazz Festival... More

Best steak in Newcastle by far, we have been here several times now and honestly can't believe some of the bad reviews this place gets !!! The staff are always friendly and the food is extremely good and quick coming out with a great price to boot, beats all the so called steak house franchises hands down, a definite must... More

Came here with a few friends on the state of origin night. We all ordered and drink and we're all surprised not only by how expensive the drinks were but how downright rude and condescending the bar staff were. There were less than 10 people in the venue and the staff spent most of their time on their phones.
