Tyne and Wear HER(17446): Benwell, Adelaide Terrace, Adelaide Hotel - Details
Benwell, Adelaide Terrace, Adelaide Hotel
The Adelaide Hotel was built on the corner of Elm Street and Adelaide Terrace in 1903. In the early 1970s, prior to demolition, the licence was transferred to the Adelaide PH on the first floor of the Adelaide Shopping Centre. A 1985 directory described it as the 'West End drinking haven' where regulars were from an older age grounp. The second Adelaide had its licence revoked in 1996.
