My partner and I come here for lunch every time we come to Newcastle. They have an amazing lunch deal of a sirloin steak chips salad and gravy with a drink for $15.50 which we get every time. We also have had the chocolate and almond pudding, the bannana pudding and the Belgium waffles with Caremal sauce and Creme brûlée... More

We had heard at Gosford this Irish pub had good steaks that came from the farm to the plate. This Hotel is not given the credit it deserves, the 3 Manning Valley steaks on the Tasting Board were cooked to perfection & perfectly accompanied with Duck Fat Baby Carrots Mushrooms. We also had the 3 Organic Pork Tasting Board, the... More

Ate here yesterday. Had an early dinner. The portions are good, and the atmosphere is not to bad, I had steak with duck fat potatoes ( which were hard in the middle) others at the table had beef and Guinness pie and a salad that was huge. Not a lot of mid strength beers available and the outdoor smoking room... More

We went for lunch to the Northern Star Hotel. There is a friendly atmosphere in the hotel and it is furnished nicely. We had a beer from the James Squire range on tap. My husband and I ordered the Slow Cooked Lamb wrap which had spinach leaves, roasted pumpkin and feta cheese. It was very well presented, came with a... More

Great menu with a fantastic selection of meat dishes. I had the Scotch fillet and it melted in your mouth. A great selection of accompaniments and wide range of beers on tap.

We have been to Finn McCools at the Northern Star on a couple of occasions and really enjoyed our night but this night the smell of cigarette smoke was atrocious!! It was all through the restaurant there was no escaping it. Having said that as usual the food was tasty. I was a bit puzzled at my steak and salad... More

We dropped into the Northern Star for lunch, and grabbed a couple of board specials. Well cooked bangers and mash, and a pasta dish with smoky bacon; delicious, and swilled down with a couple of pints of Ireland's best, ($5.50). Cheap meals and drinks at a standard well above many restaurants.

We often drop in for a good burger and a beer or two. The Northern has a great range of James Squire especially their 'black' and at the right price... very casual and always consistent with the their food.

The rooms are clean, large and comfortable. Bar fridge and tea coffee making facilities provided. The decor is somewhat tired looking. Ensuite in need of tender loving care. The hotel is located on a busy Beaumont Str, & live entertainment downstairs, ear plugs are recommended to get a night of sleep. The hotel was excellently located for the Jazz Festival... More
