Queen Victoria Newcastle Upon Tyne

Iconic High Street Pub - Investment Planned

Due to receive investment from Star Pubs & Bars the Queen Victoria is situated on the High Street in Gosforth, an affluent area around a mile north of Newcastle City Centre. The area has thriving trade and the Queen Victoria benefits from this. This impressive red brick traditional building has massive kerb appeal and is currently popular with circuit drinkers and TV sports fans.

Post-refurbishment, the Queen Victoria will be a stylish and unique pub, with a sophisticated finish where customers will love to meet for coffee, meals and drinks. Star Pubs and Bars envision the pub will have a fantastic menu offering a great selection of simple, yet delicious food, a great drinks selection including a broad selection of gins and premium cocktails, a secret beer garden, perfect for the warmer months and live music in a stylish venue.

Do you have the passion?

Ideal opportunity for an experienced operator to take an established pub and put your own twist on the food & drink offer, while embracing the local community and businesses. With investment planned to potentially include letting rooms and a function area, we need someone with vision to take this pub and make it even more successful.

Applicants should be aware the type of agreement for the Queen Victoria is open to discussion.

Trading Area & Facilities

Following the refurbishment the Queen Victoria will transform into a premium, stripped-back venue with a 'London feel'. Extensive interior works, a brand new mezzanine bar area and a new secret beer garden will make the pub a fantastic venue to be enjoyed by the whole community day or night.

Externally, the pub is an impressive large, red brick traditional property on a corner plot on Gosforth High Street and it's presence ensures plenty of passing trade from the local shops and businesses. The pub will retain its name and the refurbishment aims to enhance the traditional pub exterior, whilst creating a contrast with the modern and sophisticated interior.

Applicants should be aware that all refurbishments are subject to final board approval which will be determined as part of the leasing process. Where a significant investment is made in a pub by Star Pubs & Bars, an "Investment Exemption" will be required. The exemption means that the option of a Market Rent Option lease won't be available at rent review for a period of up to seven years for this site, as per The Pub Code (2016).

Private Accommodation

The private accommodation consists of three bedrooms, kitchen & bathroom and a lounge and where required there will be appropriate works carried out in line with the Star Pubs & Bars ready To Trade Promise.
