The Central, Gateshead


The Central is a public house on Half Moon Lane and Hills Street in Gateshead. It was built in 1856, designed by M. Thompson for Alderman Potts, wine merchant, as business premises. It became a hotel circa 1890.[1] The Central is a Grade II listed building. The pub is affectionately nicknamed “The Coffin”, because of its unusual shape. Following a period of decline the pub was purchased by The Head of Steam pub chain in October 2009, and underwent a major restoration[2], with the addition of a rooftop bar.
