From dry and fresh to fruity and full they have a great wine list available by the glass or bottle and with fantastic views of the Quayside, Pitcher & Piano Newcastle is the perfect setting for any occasion. When it comes to beers, they certainly aren’t beer bores – bottled beers and ales include Birra Moretti, Modelo Especial and Meantime Pale Ale. On draught they have got Lowenbau, Red Stripe and more.  For the designated drivers out there they have a fantastic range of premium soft drinks so you won’t be missing out. Finally what they love making the most – cocktails!  Their team of bartenders are dedicated to developing a great cocktail list from timeless classics to their very own concocutions using the finest spirits and ingredients. The dedicated restaurant serves food every day from the minute they open until 10pm.  Excellent quality food and service.  Grazing dishes and flatbreads are perfect for any time of the day socialising with friends.  Lunchtime promises delicious sandwiches and fresh summer salads.  If you’re feeling a little indulgent, we’d definitely go for one of their excellent homemade burgers with brioche buns. They have an excellent space to hire for large groups and parties on the first floor.
