Like the city itself, the County Hotel, formerly known as Thistle Newcastle, is a fascinating mix of old and new. Directly opposite the central railway station and in the heart of the city, the hotel is a Grade II Victorian Listed building, which has been sympathetically restored and brought right up to date.
The Rendez Vous bar is a bustling city bar which can be accessed through the hotel or directly from Grainger Street. Its three large LCD TVs make it a very popular and atmospheric place to view the latest sports fixtures.
A large range of spirits, draught and bottled beers, international wines and exotic cocktails are available. If you fancy a bite to eat, Rendez Vous Bar have an extensive lounge menu available throughout the day and early evening offering light snacks and traditional favourites.
