The brewery included offices (now Bruce Building, HER 5150), a mineral water works, beer-bottling plant, wine and spirit stores (basement of Bruce Building), stables for 36 horses, blacksmith's forge, coopers and joinetrs shops, an engine and boiler house to provide light and power, the Cock and Anchor Public House (later Hotspur Hotel) and shops (HER 9931). The firm had 26 other public houses. Cellars under the stable yard were accessed from the bonded warehouse in St. Thomas Street. In 1896 Newcastle Breweries acquired all of the assets of Sanderson & Sons. In the 1950s the Bruce Building was compulsorily purchased from the brewery for the extension to King's College. The east end of the building and the upper floors of Nos. 101-111 were occupied by the education department, later the International Centre for Cultural and Heritage Studies.
