The Town Wall


The Town Wall is a charming public house and eatery on Pink Lane. Just a short walk from the Central Station, this Grade II listed building boasts a storied past, having once been the home and workplace of Thomas Bewick, a famous Northumberland artist, naturalist, and engraver. The pub’s name, The Town Wall, is a nod to the historical significance of its location, which was part of the original fortified wards of the city, dating back to 1280.

Step inside, and you’ll be embraced by the warmth and character of this popular pub. The cosy, welcoming atmosphere is complemented by a wall decked out as library shelves, inviting you to lose yourself in the delightful space. Children and well-behaved dogs are welcome until 7pm, making it a good choice for families and furry friends alike.

The Town Wall’s culinary prowess is apparent in its pub food offerings, from light bites to leisurely evening meals and Sunday roasts. The tender roast beef is a perennial favourite, served with a gigantic Yorkshire pudding and scrumptious seasonal vegetables.

Now, let’s talk drinks. With an ever-evolving selection of draught beers, The Town Wall features favorites like Camden Hells, Peroni, and Estrella, alongside rotating guests from small batch breweries such as Beavertown, Cloudwater, and Wylam. If you’re more of a gin enthusiast, their collection ranges from Jack Cain’s to Monkey 47, Bathtub, and many more. Wine connoisseurs will rejoice at the ample selection, including Rare Vineyards Pinot Noir, Cono Sur Viognier, and Paul Deloux Chablis. And for those who fancy a cocktail, classics like Espresso Martini, Old Fashioned, and Negroni await.

Explore the depths of the building, and you’ll come across the Secret Cinema Room, a flexible space ideal for private dining, drinks gatherings, meetings, and social events. The Town Wall is happy to tailor the space to suit your requirements, and they can even provide a custom buffet menu if needed. There are also designated spaces on the ground floor that can be set aside for private dining occasions or spirited drinks get-togethers.

The Town Wall’s proximity to the railway station makes it an ideal destination for visitors and locals alike. It offers a blend of excellent food, an extensive drinks menu, and genuine hospitality that keeps patrons coming back time after time.
