Tyne and Wear HER(15842): Ouseburn, Quayside, Stone Cellars Public House - Details
Ouseburn, Quayside, Stone Cellars Public House
Had a brewery until the 1840s. The pub was located between the old wooden dead-house and the River Police Station. It was used for inquests held on bodies found in the River Tyne. It closed in 1893. It had a parlour which was 'the perfect ideal of the paradise of a shore-going captain of the old school; with its low ceiling, and its long latticed window, like those you see in the state cabins of the old high-pooped East Indiamen'.
