Welcome to The Prince!
– a much loved Merewether watering hole since 1876.

The Prince is one of Newcastle’s finest pubs with an emphasis on offering quality food and drinks with welcoming, friendly staff.

We’re pumping fresh new life into this classic public house off the back of a major renovation, with a fresh, friendly and motivated team on board.


We reopened our doors on June 1 following our COVID-19 closure. We’re excited about this step back towards a life more normal, and we’ll be working hard to keep to the guidelines and laws set by the NSW Government which allow us to open our doors. We are a registered COVID Safe business and we ask all guests to follow the rules and guidelines while in our hotel to help keep us all safe.
