Description

One of the most famous pubs in Newcastle – and the second oldest in the city – the pub is a grade II listed building. Rebuilt 1880 (architect W.L. Newcombe) for local brewer John Sanderson, this is a three story pub on a narrow site which retains its three drinking areas, one behind the other. Owners since 1901 are the long-established, family-run business Sir John Fitzgerald, who have made a number of careful refurbishments over the years and much of the fixed leather seating, panelling and other woodwork are likely to be true replicas of the originals. Music comes from a 1941 turntable record player situated on the bar counter and customers are encouraged to bring their vinyl LP’s to play.
