Welcome to The Victoria Comet

You'll find The Victoria Comet in the centre of Newcastle, directly opposite Newcastle Central Railway Station and a short stroll from the O2 Academy and St Nicholas Cathedral – and you won't find another pub quite like it.

Step in to discover a traditional pub of unique character, revered for its eclectic range of real ales and its quality pub food, which are served, as they should be, with a generous measure of famous British hospitality.

A fascinating past

This building has been used as a pub since the 1800s – in fact, it once housed two pubs. The Victoria on the left and The Comet on the right eventually merged to become The Victoria and Comet Hotel. The pub closed 75 years later but now we've restored it to its former glory and christened it The Victoria Comet in homage to its glorious past.

One of a kind

The Victoria Comet is one of many rare gems in the Nicholson's collection of great British pubs, reputed for their distinctive buildings, intriguing history and vibrant atmosphere.

Famous for for once being two pubs
