Brandling Arms

509 user reviews 4

Built back in the 1920s, the Brandling Arms has long been a Gosforth institution. The stylish pub is open seven days a week from 12pm onwards, serving a selection of light bites and sharing boards, along with mega Sunday roasts come the weekend.

Handily located just a short walk from the station, The Forth is a vibrant boozer venue retro interiors and a colourful outdoor terrace. Menus are curated by local street food favourites, such as Veg Heads, Ruby Jean's Burgers and The Chicken Society.  

A traditional British boozer in every sense of the word, The Gosforth Hotel offers one of the warmest welcomes in town. Swing by to sip on real ales while catching up on the sport and chowing down traditional pub grub, including bangers 'n' mash or steaming pies.

Out of all the pubs in Newcastle city centre, Crown Posada is known for its lush Victorian interiors and vintage charm. From record players and traditional awning to rustic woodwork, this boozer is quite the looker.

The Tyne Bar

If it's pubs with entertainment in Newcastle you're after, The Tyne Bar is a top pick. Set by the canal and touting a roster of live music or DJs, this charming waterfront spot is ideal for everything from chilled pints to full parties.

A top pick out of pubs in Newcastle Quayside, The Broad Chare is an infectiously cosy and welcoming space made for chatting away or browsing the papers. Enjoy their own label beer to wash down the impeccable food here, which is recommended with a Bib Gourmand in the Michelin guide.

The Town Wall

With a secret cinema room primed for private parties, plus their very own brewed pale ale, The Town Wall just so happens to be one of the best craft beer pubs in Newcastle. Brimming with bare brickwork, this Grade II plot is primed for quenching your thirst in a gorgeous space.
