Newcastle’s longest standing pub managers are looking forward to a canny revamp after thirty-one years in their pub – and the first thirty-one customers through the door are promised a free drink at the reopening on 15th November.


The Percy Arms in the heart of the city is renowned for its lifelong Geordie roots and passionate love for Newcastle United, a gem of the North-East that helps to keep alive the reality that Newcastle is one of the friendliest cities in the country.


From ultimate sports viewing and legendary music to photograph adorned walls and memorabilia telling the tales of Tony and Sue March’s reign, there’s not a toon dweller or visitor untouched by the magic of the simple pub. Closed for less than two weeks, a repaint, revitalisation of the beer garden adding outdoor heaters for all year-round socialising, and a new exterior is a suitable upgrade for the pub.


Preserving it’s quirky charm a hand painted mural of Newcastle’s St James’ Park and Bridges is destined to become a part of the Percy Arms legend of the future.


Speaking of the opening, Sue said “We are really looking forward to presenting the improvements to locals, and commemorating our thirty-one years in residency starting with the first thirty-one customers having a drink on us.”


Always offering a lively atmosphere the pub has eleven flat screen televisions, and two cinema screens including Sky HD, with a traditional pool table an insignia of the pub’s tradition.


Real ale from national favourites like Bombardier to local brews like Anarchy Brewery’s Blonde Star, six lagers, three ciders and a modern gin menu inclusive of seven botanicals, remain at the core of the pub’s offer with cocktail party bowls and pitchers a sign that everyone is welcome.


Drawing in the crowds with music led evenings Karaoke Mondays, Retro Fridays and Rocking Saturdays. For those who like to partake in a little friendly competition Wednesday is Free Pool Night and Tony and Sue will soon be hosting a weekly quiz night from the opening.
