About Us

The Jolly Fisherman on the Quay is the sister to the renowned Jolly Fisherman Craster. Our aim is to create a pub and restaurant that you would be happy to visit in all seasons, with excellent food and drinks, and a warm, cosy atmosphere. We want each venue to have a unique selling point, something we’ve achieved in Craster with the best view in Northumberland and now on the Quayside, with our incredible views of the iconic Tyne Bridge and Sage Gateshead. With only the best fish and game from our local suppliers, there’s nowhere quite like the Jolly.

Whether it’s a function, dinner for two, a family get together or just popping in for a drink after a long walk along the Newcastle Quayside, we look forward to welcoming you in.

Our Sister Venues


The Famous Jolly Fisherman Craster has been part of the collection for 6 years and continues to go from strength to strength, a relaxed lunch service means you have to get to us early to make the most of the stunning views over Craster Harbour and out towards Dunstanburgh Castle. Having served over a ton of crab meat in our Craster Crab Sandwiches it’s easy to see why they are so famous. Visit site
