The Earl Of Pitt Street Pub

A short walk away from St. James’s park is The Earl Of Pitt Street Pub. The Earl is a fantastic pub and restaurant in the centre of Newcastle. It sits opposite the old Newcastle Brown ale brewery site – now the Newcastle Helix owned by Newcastle University – and is the last remaining pub in the area connected to the old brewery.

The Earl rose from the ruins of a previous pub, the Old Greyhound, in 2014. Since then it has become a favourite amongst locals and visitors in Newcastle. Right from the front doors, with their cheeky stained glass cartoon of the Earl, the pub resonates character. When you enter the pub, you may be surprised by the interior. As the owner Mark describes it, the style is Alfred Hitchcock meets Vivienne Westwood. From the bar mats with Hitchcock references to the art on the walls, the pub can certainly be described as quirky and eye-catching.

This is then combined with the friendly nature of the staff who provide that local warmth the North East is known for. If Mark the owner is in, he will happily explain his plans and dreams for the growth of The Earl Of Pitt Street Pub and share his love of Hitchcock films with you. Mark previously ran Electric East – which was ranked one of the top 100 restaurants in the world – and has brought this high culinary quality to the Earl.

The food ranges from a selection of British pub classics on a Sunday, through to a wonderful selection of Asian fusion meals on the A La Carte menu.  The Earl’s team also provide a catering option, and are happy to host events too.
