There are plenty of bars and pubs in Gateshead to wet your whistle, whether it’s been a long day at the office or the start of a brilliant night out in the north east. The friendly 'Northern Spirit' is just one thing that Gateshead’s best pubs and bars serve up, alongside everything from classic pints to cosmopolitan cocktails and more.

Gateshead is home to a selection of fantastic bars and restaurants where you can enjoy a well-poured tipple with your meal. Sip champagne with stunning views of the city from SIX Bar and Restaurant which sits atop the Baltic Art Gallery, or recline with cocktails at The Brasserie inside The Sage where you can enjoy a drink (or two) before and after a show.

For those looking for a more traditional stiff drink, The Central located just off the Quayside offers the experience of a traditional northern pub with a stunning Victorian exterior, live music and expertly-pulled pints. Nearby, The Schooner hosts weekly pub quizzes and ales from favourite independent and local breweries such as Wylam Brewery, The Rat Brewery and Harviestoun.

Further afield, rural Gateshead offers a variety of brilliant family-friendly and dog friendly pubs with enviable menus for Sunday Lunch, fish and chips and delicious pub grub. The Lakeside Inn is a beautiful farmhouse pub with a stunning a’la carte restaurant and carvery that uses only best locally sourced ingredients, perfect to pair with their exquisite cocktail menu. Meanwhile, the Bowes Incline Pub and Hotel is a first class inn with great food on offer and a welcoming bed for the night should you decide to explore Newcastle or Gateshead further.

Visitors interested in the north east's unique history will also greatly enjoy a trip to the historic Aletaster Pub which is almost a landmark when it comes to Gateshead pubs. It stands as one of the oldest in Low Fell with a building dating all the way back to 1809, where it was initially built as a dairy. The Boathouse near Wylam also provides stunning views across the riverside, with plenty of proper beers to choose from making it the ideal spot for a sunny Bank Holiday or lazy Sunday afternoon.
