The Bacchus

A real ale pub, close to the Theatre Royal. Perfect for a night out in Newcastle!

You’ll find the Bacchus in the heart of Newcastle city centre,with a subtle grand ocean liner theme. Its walls are now lined with black and white images that affectionately look back to Tyneside’s ship building past, and it’s a fantastic place to learn about the history of one of the region’s biggest industries.

It’s also a great place to stop off before or after a visit to the Theatre Royal which is on a neighbouring street, and it’s close to Monument Metro station and many other popular entertainment venues, too.

The pub has a wide selection of cask ales, fantastic choice of microbrewery beers, extensive wine list and a vast choice of spirits.

With a regular listing in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide, it’s easy to understand why this is one of the city’s most popular pubs.
