One of the most famous public meeting places for the townsfolk of Newcastle, The Charles Grey, has been renovated and is a brand new public house for all to enjoy.

The bar was formerly known as FM's and has been renovated to a high standard. Expect real ales, an extensive wine and cocktail selection, beautiful surroundings, flickering candles, deep sofas, large lavish banquet tables, ambient lighting and friendly staff.

The bar caters for parties of all shapes and sizes and provides banquet tables, candelabra, your own private bar and beautiful décor. For bigger parties there is a top floor above monument square with the best view in town of the famous Charles Grey statue.

There are 2 levels with an upstairs area and with the Basement Tiki bar now located downstairs. There are stairs to all main floors. There is plenty of seating on all levels with wooden benches by the windows and tables and chairs.

The main bar is on the first floor and there is a further smaller bar upstairs which is open when it is busy. The upstairs bar on the second level has further seating with high tables and chairs and more seating by the windows. A function suite is available free for parties of 250 persons in the upstairs room. Buffets can be requested - ask at bar for details. Cash back facility available.

The bar is decked out tastefully and has mainly wooden fitments throughout with old portraits of elder statesmen on the walls. The lighting is subdued in the evening giving the place a cosy feel.

The bar is mainly frequented by locals, students, shoppers and business people. It is very popular at all times, especially at weekends and with the student crowd. It makes an ideal meeting place for the football crowd on match days. The range of meals also make it very busy on a lunchtime. A small outside seating area is open in fine weather with waiter service. No children allowed.

Disabled access very good as a lift is available to all floors. Toilets are small and clean.

Price: Moderate.
