Pleased to Meet You, a contemporary gin emporium and draft house on Newcastle’s High Bridge, just off Grey Street, has opened its doors to reveal a lavish refurbishment .

The Grade II Listed building, formerly The Turks Head and The Lane pub, has been completely renovated and marks the latest successful opening for Ladhar Leisure, which operates venues nationwide including Newcastle’s Lady Grey’s, and Redhouse.

The opening of Pleased To Meet You, which created 40 jobs, has been supported by law firm Sintons. Partners Alok Loomba and Sarah Smith handled the real estate and licensing aspects of the venue.
