Newcastle has set the bar quite high when it comes to food. There are so many options that you could barely go wrong. I was disappointed with the Mary Ellen, it needs to up its game to compete with some of the other pubs in...More

Excellent food and great service. The live music was excellent with bands on Fri, Sat and Sun. Plus they have 31 different beers on tap. Great place for a drink or a meal.

Recently refurbished and offerring a great vibe close to the junction in merewether, food is terrific and excellent value .. but you do pay full retail for your drinks. Live music a few nights a week is a lot of fun
