Our five bars offer a range of drinks, including a selection of local guest real ales – sometimes we even help to create our own. Interval drinks may be pre-ordered from each bar to avoid the rush, allowing even more time to enjoy the spectacular views from the balconies.
Our ice cream, sold on the Hall Bars during the interval, is made by Doddington’s Dairy in Northumberland and is free from artificial flavours and colourings. It’s delicious.
All of our Hall Bar’s are perfectly positioned to give you the full experience of our fabulously situated building. The exceptional views across the River Tyne to the Newcastle cityscape, allow for private functions to have an unrivalled and truly breathtaking backdrop. These areas, holding 250 standing delegates each, are regularly used for weddings, exhibitions and private drinks receptions as well as for catering and refreshment areas during larger conferences or events.
