VIDEO: Ship Hotel, Tyne Main, 1967

From Roll out the Barrel, the British Film Institute’s DVD compilation of documentaries about beer and pubs.

One reply on “VIDEO: Ship Hotel, Tyne Main, 1967”

Just in case you don’t know the pub still stands today as The Schooner and is in fact thriving under new ownership. However you would be hard pressed to identify it from the interior shots on the DVD and even more so by the land surrounding the pub compared to 45 years ago. For one thing there is now a quite mature small wood between the pub and the river.

Anyway if you are ever in Gateshead I heartily recommend calling in. There is still live music and a few characters though they do have cleaner hands!
