The Bodega

A real ale pub, steeped in history.

If there was ever a reminder of what drinking in Victorian days was like, you’ll find it at The Bodega.

One of the most popular venues in Newcastle, and the pub where staff from other pubs go for a drink, it boasts a traditional long bar, Victorian stained glass domes, elaborately tiled floors, and lots and lots (and lots) of history.

The pub was crowned Real Ale Pub of the Year in 2014, 2015, and was runner-up in 2016, so you can also expect a true commitment to offering the very best real ale. And when you combine that with a great mix of people, large screen plasma TVs, and friendly staff, it’s the perfect place to relax before or after visiting nearby St James’ Park, the Tyne Theatre, or virtually anywhere else.
