Tyne and Wear HER(15556): Newcastle, Groat Market, Collingwood Restaurant and Buffet - Details
Newcastle, Groat Market, Collingwood Restaurant and Buffet
Built in 1890 by Mrs Swanston of Rye Hill. Part of the restaurant operated as a public bar but you weren't supposed to be able to buy a drink unless you bought something to eat. The Collingwood restaurant closed in 1926 but reopened as the Groat House pub. Is this now Ohso?
