City Tavern, established in 1923 in a historic Tudor facade building, was one of Newcastle's most famous pubs. Since then it has undergone several name and style changes, until Spring 2014 when it was brought back to where it all began and transformed it into the city's most sumptuous venue. The bar was also formerly known as LYH, The Tavern and previous names have been Huxters, Stepps and Shamrox.

The bar has been given another full refurbishment throughout and now offers it's own house brew, City Tavern Ale, Bar Hound Ale and a Craft Lager 'Three Hop. The main bar downstairs has several widescreen plasma TV's with a large drop down screen for Live sporting events. There are a number of TV's upstairs also showing the sporting action.

There is plenty of seating with some booths to the right of the main entrance and opposite to the bar. There is also a number of high table and chairs and leather settees. The upstairs room has a small bar that is open every day and is mainly used for diners or functions. This area has plenty of seating with tables and chairs and more comfortable leather settees. The bar is decked out in a modern style with exposed brickwork and spotlighting to the ceiling.

Regular music is on play at most times. Bookings for parties and functions is free and can be arranged for between 12 to 250 persons with buffets and canapes provided. There are also wedding packages now available. The bar attracts a mixed clientele of shoppers, diners and sporting enthusiasts. It can get very busy at times especially at lunchtime and at weekends and is especially busy on match days. The excellent range of house cask ales on offer makes this place a popular venue in this area of Newcastle.

Disabled access can be difficult as steps at the main entrance. Toilets are small and clean.

Price: Reasonable.
