Light meals and drinks can be served in our relaxed and stylish bar and lounge areas. Whether it’s coffee and cakes with friends, a light bite over a business meeting or a well-deserved, after-work glass of wine, we are happy to welcome you. We are also one of only a handful of Newcastle hotels to serve a proper afternoon tea, for which we’ve become somewhat famous.
Our daytime dining menu is simple yet tasty whether you're in the mood for steak and chips or something lighter such as homemade soup or a Caesar salad. We've a selection of coffees for the discerning coffee drinker, a full range of loose leaf teas, over 15 different wines by the glass and a great choice of classic cocktails.
The Cocktail Bar is cosy and charming with plump sofas, an inglenook fireplace and a buzz of conversation. Alternatively, the Billiard Room has a clubby atmosphere, another grand fireplace and is the perfect spot to savour afternoon tea.
We're open to non-residents too with food served from breakfast right through until 10pm. Although we will always do our utmost to accommodate you, we would advise booking for afternoon tea - served from 2:30pm until 4:30pm - to avoid disappointment.
