Shown on Ordnance Survey second edition. In the 1850s Thomas Davison rented the Pickwick Inn, a 7 roomed public house with cellars, stable and brewery producing 20 half-barrels. William Price worked the brewery from 1870 until 1874 under its new name, the White Lion. It could now produce 25 half-barrels. Further improvements were made in 1882. In the late 1880s and early 1890s Henry Davidson brewed there, producing 34 barrels of beer a week. Brewing ceased here by 1899 when Matthew Wood, South Shields brewer, bought the pub. The White Lion closed in 1909.
