Tyne and Wear HER(15697): Newcastle, City Road, Duke of Connaught Public House - Details
Newcastle, City Road, Duke of Connaught Public House
This pub was created by adding an extension to the front and into the garden of an elegant house. Then, City Road was a fashionable suburb. At the turn of the 20th century the Northern Echo said 'City Road, which no one would patronise by choice, abounds in lofty and what were then really stately tradesmen's dwellings. But its glory has departed'. The Duke of Connaught closed in 1906.
