Gunner Tavern


Located opposite Newcastle’s Central Station, you’ll find Gunner Tavern, an inviting watering hole with its classic green-tiled exterior.

Step inside, and the pub continues to impress. Exposed brick and warm wood tones create a down-to-earth atmosphere. There’s ample seating too, whether you’re after a cosy spot for two or a larger space for a group. And if fresh air is more your style, they’ve got you covered with an outdoor seating area.

But let’s talk about the real star of the show here – the drinks. Gunner Tavern prides itself on a dynamic array of brews. You’ve got 18 keg lines and five cask options to choose from, all offering a taste of something special. Expect everything from refreshing lagers and locally-crafted beers, to creative stouts and ciders that pack a punch.

Gin lovers are also in for a treat. Their gin selection rotates with the seasons, including fruit-infused gins, classic London, Old Tom, and even some small batch and experimental options. Cocktail enthusiasts aren’t left out either. Gunner Tavern’s cocktail list boasts favourites like Barrel-aged Negronis, Pink Lane Espresso Martinis, and Mezcalitas.

The food at Gunner Tavern is also noteworthy. They serve delicious main meals and snacks from noon to 8pm on Wednesdays to Fridays, and 10am to 6pm on Saturdays and Sundays. The menu offers a varied selection, with everything from small plates and spit roasts to sharing boards making an appearance. For those looking for a quality breakfast to start the day, they’ve got you covered from 10am to midday on Fridays through Sundays.

Situated where the famous Gotham Town bar stood for decades, Gunner Tavern has since become an iconic fixture of its own in Newcastle’s vibrant pub scene. It offers the ideal environment for unwinding after a busy day or launching into an evening of excitement. The pub’s prime location makes it the perfect starting point for exploring the vibrant nightlife and rich culture that Newcastle has to offer.
