About us

Situated right across from Newcastle Central Station, The Head of Steam Newcastle has gained notoriety for hosting the best in up-to-the-minute music and is constantly recognised as being one of the best bars in the city. Combining both the bars welcoming atmosphere and warm surroundings with an emphasis on musical brilliance the Head of Steam Newcastle has proved a popular breeding ground for talent including early appearances from bands including the Arctic Monkeys, Maximo Park and The Futureheads.

The upstairs bar was refurbished in September 2015, and is packed with great craft beers, cask ales, sharing bottles, and beers from across the globe!.

One of my favourite pubs in Newcastle - great beer, fair prices and fantastic service! The staff really make this place welcoming and different from other bars (and they're not bad to look at either!) If you haven't been before I'd definitely recommend it

A bit of a hidden gem with one of the best selections of beers and ales in Newcastle. Pretty small bar area up a load of stairs (not wheelchair friendly) but well worth the climb.

Welcoming bar with a good choice of cask and keg, with the environment feeling inviting and comfortable. It's hard to see the beer choice though if customers sit in front of pumps, needs a list on a blackboard or Untappd perhaps. But, nonetheless, a lovely venue and would recommend.
