I remember Pravda... I think there was an assumption that although it was totally out on a limb, the Quayside would grow westwards to link it in properly... and then didn't.

Well, that was the final 25 out of the 150 pubs run by "Scottish & Newcastle Inns", up to 1983 when they became Newcastle Inns.

The small photos are all from "proofs" of the 150 Matchbox Labels, that were on all boxes of matches sold in S&N pubs at that time.

I hope that some of you liked seeing these . . . and that maybe they reminded you of the 'pubs of the past', that are either long-gone (in some cases) or under a very different name nowadays!

I'll close with a little bit of information about the history (up until 1983) of "Scottish & Newcastle Pubs" . . .





"Thats All Folks"

Not strictly about the 'pubs', more about what goes in them!

Some interesting bits of trivia about Newcastle Brown Ale . . .

I think that this thread is best kept for 'current chat' about current pubs, etc.

If I come across any more pub-related (or 'Brown Ale' related, like the post before this one!) nostalgic/historical type information (like the 1980s S&N Pubs 'matchbox label' pictures) . . . even if it is about 'pubs', I'll post it onto the Historic thread, rather than on here.

I think that is the logical way to do it, to keep the theme of this thread, purely 'current'.

Good to see one of my long-standing "in-town locals" still going strong!!

Bacchus wins Camra pub of the year gong
Mar 23 2010 by Katie Davies, Evening Chronicle



Newcastle watering hole the Bacchus was crowned king of cask ales for the second year running.

The popular local, on High Bridge, has been named CAMRA’s Tyneside pub of the year 2010, following a vote by members.

And among those regularly passing through the doors of the pub, named after the Greek God of wine, to sample the range of real ales on offer are beer fans and members of folk-rock Tyneside band Lindisfarne.

Bar manager Andy Hickson has been at the helm of Bacchus for two-and-a-half years. He is delighted that the pub has won the award for the second year running.

The 30-year-old said: “It’s just brilliant that we have been awarded it for the second year running. It’s always a good thing to try and help develop trade in terms of promotion.

“CAMRA are a well known company and it’s great to get a recommendation from them. I hope that people recognise this as a high recommendation.

“It’s nice to think it’s not just a one-off occasion and it shows that we aim to maintain these high standards every year.

“We have maintained everything we had last year and I would hope to think that things have improved as well.”

Votes for the annual competition were cast in February when ballot papers were sent out to the 900 Campaign for Real Ale members across Tyneside and Northumberland.

In all, three certificates are awarded across Northumberland, with just one prize for Tyneside. The North East regional pub of the year was the Boathouse in Wylam. Other winners were The Tap & Spile in Morpeth, and John Bull in Alnwick.

CAMRA North East branch chairman Richard Dollimore said: “One of the main reasons it was chosen as the winner is because it’s trying to be a bit innovative.

“It’s always trying out different drinks and they are not scared to experiment with their choice of ales. It always tries very hard to match an ale to a particular dish they are serving in the pub.

“They are trying to teach customers about the ale and they are doing this very well.”

The title also represents another victory for Newcastle-based pub company Sir John Fitzgerald Ltd, who own Bacchus.

Andy added: “It’s a chance to show everyone the quality products we have available. It adds a real boost at a time when pubs have been suffering.”

was out doing the weekly shop today at Sainsburys Whiley Bay and popped into The Beacon beforehand! Canny little pub even though its a chain, had Deuchars, Stella, Peroni, Becks and several guest ales on tap and wide selection of wines. Looked like food was decent too. Certainly made the shop a lot easier after a few beers inside me

I have memories of a pub that was in Eldon Square shopping centre and had an entrance onto Old Eldon Square. It was (roughly speaking) Where Nando's is now.

Anyone remember what it was called?

A new bar for the "Pink Triangle"

Fatboy leaisure have been granted permission (7th April 2010) to convert this eyesore on Scottswood Road into a new bar



plans etc. can be seen here.

Not sure if "Opal Lounge" is just a working name, or the actual name for the bar.

I'm guessing this is the black box design that we saw on here somewhere? Ah well, it'll be something a bit different I guess.

Not sure of the company name. They also run the Stage Door, I think. Camp David is no more, however. It is called something else, possibly 'Eazy Street'? I thought it was a rename, until i visited and it's certainly not on-brand with anything Camp David was before.

It's meant to be a drag/cabaret bar...but I don't think it will be of a better quality than anything else on offer in that area. Shame it's gone, as Camp David was a brilliant little bar with lovely roof terrace...and was really positive/sensitive in upholding its place as a genuine 'mixed' bar, for gay and straight crowds, whilst being trendy.
