A reception at the Crown & Anchor with Sprout Dining is the ultimate Newcastle wedding

There’s nothing more romantic than returning to the scene of the original crime to celebrate your wedding nuptials. And we reckon a wedding reception at the Crown & Anchor, with award-winning Sprout Dining is the ultimate Newcastle wedding bash. Here’s why….

If there’s one thing your guests will remember about your wedding, it’s the food. And when you’re celebrating the biggest day of your life you want the best, right?

Well, if nothing’s too good for your loved one, you want your wedding reception to be catered by the best in the business. And in Newcastle, that means Sprout Dining.

PROTIP: Even if you aren’t looking to book a wedding you can experience the fantastic food from Sprout for lunch and dinner!

City, tick. Central, tick. Waterfront, tick. The Crown & Anchor has location, location, location in spades. If your wedding guests are from out of town this central location is perfect, highlighting the glistening harbour and offering accommodation options at all price points nearby. Those special guests love to party? No problem, with a 3 am licence and live music downstairs until late The Crown & Anchor is the ultimate kick on venue.

PROTIP: If you are having an outdoor wedding (park or beach, etc) and it rains, it is no problem, you can bring the ceremony into the venue!


You won’t believe you’re still in the CBD of Newcastle when you reach the top of the stairs at The Crown & Anchor. Their brightly lit space upstairs is tastefully styled with exposed brickwork, upcycled timber, industrial style furniture and plush lounges with French doors opening onto two harbour-view balconies.  Complete with outdoor lounges and cocktail rounds this makes for a pretty memorable party.
