We had our pre-wedding/rehearsal dinner at the GNH and it was great! The team set up an exclusive area for us beautifully, it felt really special. And they were happy to work with whatever we wanted. Overall a very easy, relaxing event. I loved the live music, the only down side was it was super loud making conversation very difficult. See less

Hotel decor is stunning. I had the salt and pepper squid with salad. The squid was OK but the 'salad'was some mixed lettuce leaves smothered in aoli laying on top of a quarter of a cup of aoli with two pieces of tomato. Not nice at all. I'll stick with drinks next time. See less

We had a 22nd birthday celebration here on the 16th April. Loved this pub. Staff were very friendly and efficient. Organising the party from afar couldn’t have been easier with Matthew. Food was just right for our party. Great music to dance as well. Cold beers, wine and great cocktails, what more could we want! See less

Best chicken snitty and chips I've had in ages. A bigger serving of sauce/gravy would be good. See less

Experience: warm, relaxed and friendly vibe. At standard for a pub-style place. Meals were admittedly overpriced for a pub. Live entertainment was on point. 3/5 stars for experience. Customer service: friendly staff. Service: pretty quick for a Sunday evening. Food: Rustic Fries with house made aioli: perfect! Good portion and great taste. Bruschetta: generous portion, ratios were almost there, where flavour balance was thrown a tad off by overdressing of the balsamic vinegar. Otherwise delicious. Crumbed lamb cutlets: the lamb was under seasoned, meat itself was dry and tough. The crumbed coating took away from the lamb which was disappointing. The garlic/truffle mash was pleasant in the first 2 mouthfuls then became overpowering. The vegetables were a strange mix of capsicum, zucchini, green beans, asparagus which did not complement the lamb dish at all. The gravy was lacking in flavour. I would say having a more simple approach would be beneficial. Tasmanian crispy skin salmon: large portion size, the salmon was divine!!! The roasted potatoes did make the dish heavy. Green beans and asparagus were great, however the capsicum and zucchini were unnecessary. The portion of corn was awkward to eat and didn't quite fit with the dish. Drinks: unfortunately we did not plan to drink this particular night, there seemed to be a lack of variety and seemed to be overpriced for a can of coke. Otherwise a pleasant experience! We recommend this place for people to chill out at. See less

Just want to thank the staff at The Great Northern Hotel for hosting our Newcastle Fringe Festival After Party on Sunday 21 March. The artists and organisers gathered together to celebrate a successful festival and present some awards. Maynard was there to spin some retro tunes and we all had a fun time. The staff were friendly and helpful and our event ran smoothly from start to finish. Thanks everyone! See less

😄👍 Wow!! Looking swish since reopening. Really great atmosphere in each area, from the bar, the lounge and the bistro. We caught live music here tonight & enjoyed really tasty meals of pizza, risotto and fried chicken wings See less

Great location in the up and coming parts of Newcastle. The owners have gone to great lengths to restore the pub to its original art deco style. The menu is well priced and plentifully. The bar is well stocked with good wines beers & spirits. The staff are all help and friendly. The Great Northern Hotel is worth look if you are in area. See less
