I drove past last week and there were men in suits with clipboards taking pictures and measurements. I heard from a friend that it was for sale quite cheaply as it has limited use and permission was unlikely to be gained for anything residential so it is likely to become either a pub again or more likely, a pub/restaurant.

In the early/mid eighties I was a regular so I do keep an eye on it but as I recall, there aren't enough rooms upstairs to have anything hotel-ish and to be honest, I've been waiting to read about its proposed demolition like so many of the old pubs in Shields.

I'm keeping my eye on this so if you find anything out I'd like to know.

Rumour has it that it that the people who own Aneesas the Indian Restaurant have bought it... :wink:

That makes sense. Looking at similar pubs that have closed, many of them end up as Chinese or Indian restaurants. The pub is about the right size for that.
