The Venue

Chart House is one of the few buildings that escaped the devastation of the 1854 Great Fire of Newcastle and Gateshead that destroyed much of the Quayside. The building was historically home to Matthew S Dodds, a printer of books, maps and charts that sailors setting out to sea would come to buy. The distinctive original ‘Charts’ signage can still be seen on the front of the building.

The venue is full of carefully curated sketches, pictures and sea charts that reflect the building’s maritime past.  Customers can enjoy our ground floor bar and pavement terrace, first-floor mezzanine-lounge and our elegant dining room with panoramic riverscape views.
