Tyne and Wear HER(15622): Jesmond, Archbold Terrace, Royal Archer Public House - Details
Jesmond, Archbold Terrace, Royal Archer Public House
Opened in the Scottish Life development in 1974. A member of the brewery's architect's department was keen on archery. The design of the Royal Archer was said to have "the air of a gentleman's pub about it". It received a commendation from the Royal Institute of British Architects in 1976. It later became the Legendary Yorkshire Heroes. In 1995 the pub was re-fitted by Century Inns and was renamed the Archer. It is now Mr Lynch, a 1960s theme pub.
