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 first step back to 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. All patrons will be required to provide contact details upon entry to the hotel, and there are set limits to the number of patrons that we can have in the hotel at any time. We will be enforcing social distancing measures and we have employed extra cleaning and sanitising procedures to keep us all safe.

Our full conditions of entry can be viewed here.
