Tyneside Coffee Rooms

Since 1938 our Coffee Rooms venue has been a much-loved meeting point for all manner of Newcastle folk and visitors to the city. When COVID hit last year, we were forced to close our cinema and all our hospitality spaces.

The Coffee Rooms will not be reopened initially, partly because of difficulties in keeping a safe distance between visitors, and partly to give us time to make some much-needed improvements to the venue. We will be replacing the worn-out carpets, redecorating the walls, improving the furnishings, and installing a drop-down screen and sound equipment so we can host special screenings in the evenings as part of our new programme of events. Once we have everything refurbished we will be able to work on the relaunch of the Coffee Rooms. We hope to welcome back customers to this iconic venue before the end of the year.

Our 83-year old traditional tea-room located on our second floor. Complete with a fully licensed bar and restaurant, Tyneside Coffee Rooms serves you the best of British at great value.

When our founder, Dixon Scott, opened Tyneside Cinema, he initially intended to let the three rooms upstairs as offices. However, when no-one could afford them, the Scott family opened Tyneside Coffee Rooms in 1938. Tyneside Coffee Rooms has been a local institution ever since.

We serve the best British classics, all freshly made on-site, including fish and chips, delicious sandwiches, jacket potatoes, hearty soups, and a range of sweet treats to delight your tastebuds. Enjoy your food in the warm, art-deco surrounding and transport yourself back to the 1930s.

Every day, from 15:00-17:00, enjoy our Afternoon Cream Tea. Choose from a freshly baked scone with clotted cream and jam, our cake of the day, or a mini cake with a hot drink. The perfect afternoon treat for a catch-up or pick-me-up.
