Moving in to The Old Pub
Brandnew HQ has recently moved! We are now located in The Old Pub, in East Quayside.
As the name suggests, the building we are now in used to be a pub, this was known as The Fighting Cocks.
The image above was taken from http://www.flickr.com/photos/newcastlelibraries/4078287333/.
From the information we can find out, the original proprietor of the pub was E. Liddell (1899), pictured above.
A regular patron of The Fighting Cocks, Rob Ayre, remarked “I remember this from my student days in the early 90′s; popular and a definite cut above other pubs in the area” (source: http://www.closedpubs.co.uk/northumberland/newcastle_fightingcocks.html).
The pub was enjoyed by many until the turn of this century when it closed its doors for the final time.
