    There used be the teams club as well down Bensham way, could sell yer granny in there. Was a pub as well, can't recall it's name at the moment, bit further up in Bensham was the jockey, more like a saloon.
     
  2. This is the same advice that away fans at Sunderland get when they come to Sunderland mate.

    'Just go to Newcastle the pubs are better'. No wonder we fail to stop that happening when even Sunderland fans advocate going to Newcastle as the best option.

    Black bull next to the Metro used to be a decent pub if it's still there.

    Duchars was always a weird pub as it was in the middle of nee where, bit of a hike from the ship then the closest one from there woulda been what? Leam social club?

    Bit further afield there was a pub at eighton banks, was known as a swingers gaff, again, the name escapes me. Was the ship as well, used to do cracking scran.
     
  16. There was also briefly a night club called the Cotton Club which was on the side street just up from what used to be the British Lion and just down from the Police Station. The dance floor was the size of most people's front room so to make it look bigger they covered the walls in mirrors. That place was something to behold and made Bobby's look like the Ritz.

    The name Bobby's came from the comedian Bobby Patterson who was based there and who I think owned it for a while. When he left or retired or sold it on or stopped for whatever reason, it was renamed the 'Roundhouse' as it was a circular building. Pretty much nobody in Gateshead ever used the new name and it was and always will be simply known as 'Bobby's'

    Found a canny photo here of Bobby in front of the club;

    The previous photo was copywrited apparently with Bobby in front of it, but this was the place and I am sure a fair few will remember it.

    No matter how pissed or off your head, no one was ever turned away from Bobbys :lol:
    Although once you got in you wish you had of been
     
  20. The Eagle was up the hill from the Duchars and then there was the Bugle on Fewster Square plus the Leam Club, After that you had the Black Bull at Wardley which is now an old peoples home.

    Don't live there any more and have not done since 1991 but I have family who do, I think the Eagle is still open, the Duchars long gone, the Bugle is now a farm foods and as I said The Black Bull is an old people's home.

    The other pub on the estate was the Durham Ranger and I think that one is still there. The ship closed down years ago as well although it was never actually on Leam Lane Estate.

    The Leam Lane Club is still going but its a horrible soulless place and is nearly always empty. I go there now and again when my brothers come back to see my mother as that's where they drink when they come up as my mother lives very close to it. I hate the place with a passion, its awful beyond belief.
