Newcastle Publick House
Restaurant - Bar - Lounge
The Newcastle Publick House welcomes you! We have been featuring natural and often organic local seafood, meats and produce since we opened our doors in 2008. We offer a wide variety of tastes and dishes that reflect both the season and region. Around here, it’s Damariscotta River oysters that people seek, here at the Newcastle Publick House we work with numerous oyster farms to provide our customers with the absolute best that the river has to offer. Raw on the half shell or Jumbo baked as our signature Angry Al’s, these oysters should not be missed. Vegans, Vegetarians and Gluten-free need not worry we have thoughtfully prepared items for everyone (see our Menu page for more info).
The Newcastle Publick House has been certified as an environmental Leader, offering best practices for a healthier and sustainable environment. With seasonal outdoor seating, we are open year round and are family friendly. Live music is offered in the Oysterhead Lounge several nights each week. See our Events Calendar to see who’s playing and what’s happening! The Newcastle Publick House always has at least 20 beers on tap. Our draft selection represents the very best that independent brewers have to offer. Of course our wine list is extensive as well, our focus is on high quality affordable varieties from around the world. Two full bars feature specialty drinks and house infused cocktails.
Featured in Fodor’s 2018 Mid-Coast Maine Travel Guide as a Fodor’s “Choice”, Downeast Magazine (Perfecting the Pub, 2009 and Comfort Food, 2010), Maine Magazine (Angry Al’s), Maine Today (Newcastle Publick House Serves Tasty Cocktails in an Old-School Setting, March 12, 2018) and even the Wall Street Jounal’s (Summer Travel Issue 2011) to name a few, it is clear that we are THE place for fresh and local fare. Come try our “House” smoked pulled pork nachos, Riverside Butcher Co. custom ground burgers, Angry Al’s Oysters, haddock chowder, Caesar salad with crab cakes or a certified prime pub steak to name few. We hope to see you soon at the Newcastle Publick House!
The Oysterhead Lounge is located just upstairs from the Newcastle Publick House. The lounge is open Wednesday through Saturday from 5:00 p.m. to close. We offer the same great menu and specials as in the dining room and pub in a more casual atmosphere. The Oysterhead Lounge is our venue for live music, open mic, televised sports, trivia and numerous special events. We have a pool table and a couple of dartboards adjacent to the lounge itself.
