“There are three things you need to offer your customers: Great Service, Great Food, and a Great Atmosphere”, Kevin Adams, the Owner says, and customers agree.

Now open for over 10 years at The Old Newcastle House, Kevin and the team have been building a loyal customer base since opening the doors in 2009. Located in a century home from the 1840’s, the building was moved to it’s current location in the 1940’s, and revamped as a commercial property in the early 2000’s.

Many years of plain old hard work have resulted in just the right mix of a Neighbourhood Pub and a Local Eatery; a place to gather and celebrate for special occasions or to meet up for a drink. Our free Wifi makes this a convenient place for a working lunch. People often return to enjoy Daily & Weekly Menu Specials and Live Music on some weekend evenings, but come early as the spaces fill up quickly, so we accept reservations in advance. The patio is a hotspot in the summer for impromptu parties, and perfect as a pleasant stop for cyclists and motorcyclists travelling through the area. We can accommodate your group for Special Occasions as a private event, and, offer customized catering in the Durham and Northumberland Regions.

What makes the Old Newcastle House Taps & Grill so special to visitors? We’re often called ‘Newcastle’s Best Kept Secret’ for good reason! Come out and see why, for yourself!

‘We have NEVER had a bad meal at the Old Newcastle House.  Their menu has something for everyone, from eclectic and creative, to classic pub grub.  Portions are generous and the food is always tasty.  The staff are extremely friendly and go out of their way to accommodate diners.  I especially appreciate all of the extra effort ONH has made to adjust to new covid protocols including expanded patio, heaters and now tents.  They’re a great place to go for reliably tasty food with a smile! :)’

‘…I have been using your take out back window service and it has been very easy to use and the service has been exceptional.
Today was my first experience on the redesigned patio and it is wonderful. I imagine that some of it was driven by Covid and some was chosen improvements like the pergola structure and east side booths. It all seems very practical and yet adds to the aesthetic of what was always a great patio.
Finally and this is not new to you, but I cannot resist once again singing the praises of Tanya. The other server was very capable as well although she is new to me just today.
Thanks for continuing to own and operate a great local business.’
