Newcastle, Haymarket, Crow's Nest Hotel Public House
Shown on Ordnance Survey second edition. Known as Inventions and Bar Oz in the 1980s and 1990s. Has now reverted to its original name again. In 2014 the first and second floors were recorded by ASUD along with the adjoining Line Building. The rooms contained elaborate plasterwork decoration. On the first floor this was largely hidden by subdivisions and suspended ceiling. On the second floor there is a large panelled ballroom with a decorated plaster vault.
