Welcome to Pubs Newcastle
This is an independent guide to the pubs of Newcastle Upon Tyne.

If you are a visitor to the city and want to enjoy a good night out this comprehensive guide may interest you.

There has never been a better time to visit Newcastle with all the uncertainty over Covid, flight cancellations and delays, tourist taxes and increased Euro costs so why not ditch visiting the EU 'abyss', stay in the UK and visit Newcastle (that special place in heaven!!).

Newcastle has plenty to offer with a rich history, cultural, food and entertainment scene and is recognised as being the party capital of the UK and one of the top party cities of the world.

Saudi Arabia FlagWith the Newcastle United takeover being completed on 7th October 2021 the city should firmly become the number 1 place to go in the UK and building new links to Saudi Arabia.
