About The Great Northern Hotel - Newcastle

Book Direct with the Owner at The Great Northern Hotel - Newcastle in Newcastle with Tourism Bookings WA for all your restaurant and entertainment needs.

The iconic Great Northern Hotel is situated in the heart of Newcastle. Surviving depressions, recessions, floods and earthquakes, the building still stands alone as an art deco treasure situated in the historic East End convict precinct. The establishment is 145 years old in name, making it the oldest pub in Newcastle’s CBD. The Hotel has been rebuilt three times in the same location, with the current building opening its doors to the public in 1938. Even Her Majesty the Queen stayed here when she was visiting our fair shores in the city’s halcyon days…

Nestled between Newy’s working harbour and leisurely beachfront, the pub is an ideal choice for functions big or small. While our three upstairs ballrooms, boutique-style hotel rooms and rooftop patio are in the infancy stages of design and renovation [after being left vacant and derelict for the last 20 years] the downstairs pub and bistro area of this iconic art deco building have many features that will ensure your function exceeds expectations! A focus on live entertainment and original music (six days a week…!) means there is always something happening here at the Great Northern Hotel.

The Great Northern Hotel has three distinct areas that can be hired out in entirety or sectioned off for smaller groups. Whether it be a canapé menu, or sit down feast, we’ll help you develop an event that suits your style and budget.

We do not charge room hire fees, and have no minimum spend. We feel that these types of fees are better spent on the good parts of any memorable party that your guests will remember – that being delicious food and tantalizing drinks!

The various function rooms are available seven days a week, lunchtime through to late. We have three rooms, each with it’s own bar, to suit all function requirements big and small.

    Went in with the husband for a quiet drink. I instantly fell in love with this very old pub plus there's a hotel as well that the Barman said is about to start being renovated and will back to its former glory. Can't wait. The atmosphere was great. Would recommend anyone to come here.

    Great looking bar / restaurant. The interior is beautiful but the pub was dead and had absolutely no atmosphere.

    We're from Melbourne and contrary to another review in here, we came to see some Latin music and found it a very enjoyable experience with a very friendly crowd. Also the building is quite beautiful with a very nice art decoding lounge.

    Check out the back bar on Thursday and Friday nights for a cool swing lounge and great DJ. Nice room for chatting and getting together, meals are a good price.
