About Us

The Townhouse Bar & Prime 59 Steakhouse is ready and waiting to offer a warm greeting as you enter Morpeth’s bustling high street. The original, charismatic three-storey building, which dates back to the mid-1800s, stands proudly just over Telford Bridge on the River Wansbeck – a grand feature of the historic market town.

Open for food and drink from Wednesday to Sunday, The Townhouse is the perfect place for a coffee, a light lunch, a drink with friends or a fine dining experience.

The Bar

By day, The Townhouse ground floor is the ideal rendezvous spot for coffee, or a bite to eat during your break from shopping. Come evening, it’s a place to relax, unwind and enjoy a tall gin or celebratory glass of prosecco to a finger clicking soundtrack of vintage soul, sophisticated disco and new groove.

Whether you enjoy classic cocktails, kraft ales, ice cold beers or home grown spirits your tastes are well and truly catered for – in addition to a handpicked selection of the very best wines from around the world.

Our outdoor terrace and cobbled alley are perfect for the diverse British weather, providing a sun trap on the hottest of summer days and a welcome, warm shelter during the wind, rain and snow!

Prime 59 Steakhouse

Prime 59 at The Townhouse enjoys an enviable view over Telford Bridge and the Wansbeck River. Executive Chef Lee Bell and his team have put Northumbrian heart and soul into a menu which is rich with northern classics and the finest steaks.

Come Sunday all our efforts are focused on serving the very best traditional roast. Simple, rustic and full of sustenance – it’s an institute in the making!
