Corporate Dining

Steeped in history this imposing Norman fortress is a rugged remainder of northern England’s turbulent history. This was no baron’s stately home. The Castle was a grim remainder of royal authority where armies gathered, and criminals were imprisoned and executed.  It is where the story of Newcastle began, the reason the city got its name and has the most commanding views over the city and the River Tyne. King Henry II and his son King John, William Wallace and King Edward I are just some of the characters associated with the Castle.

What better venue to show off Newcastle to your clients? Whether it is a formal sit-down meal or a drinks reception for your clients to mingle and explore the Castle Keep for themselves we can guarantee that your clients will be impressed by your choice of venue!

Imagine your event in the 44ft-high Great Hall where the King of England once received esteemed guests. With background, or live, medieval music and t-lights adorning the rugged nooks and crannies of the walls and steps, the Great Hall looks and feels both breath-taking and intimate.

This is a dry-hire venue so how you make use of our spaces is entirely up to you but perhaps you could begin with welcome drinks on the roof to enjoy the breath-taking views across the city.

  • ‘Surly Guards’ or even a Knight on Horseback to greet your guests available on request.
  • Live medieval music by two musicians, or recorded music, can be provided at an additional cost.
