    Know the one you mean, but I'm bu99ered if I can remember the name either.

    I'll probably be trying to remember it for weeks now! Thanks!

    I remember a grotty pub just up the road from Smith's Dock in N Shields. Called 'the Jungle' IIRC. Were all NS pubs grotty?

    This would be Minnie Beck's, The Dock Hotel. I trawled this area in the early 70's photographing the old Albert Edward dock and surrounding areas, but I think the pub had gone by '74 or '75. I have a photo if you'd like it emailed?
