 This pub was a very busy and was one of the top properties in the Teesside area owned by Scottish & Newcastle Breweries, in terms of annual turnover. At that time during the 1960s I knew the landlord Eddie Murphy who was a friend of my father. He had a wife Vera and two children. Eddie had been a professional footballer playing as a full-back for Blackburn Rovers and later moved from the Brambles Farm to the The Thorntree on the Greenway not too far away. The landlord who took over from Eddie when he left was from the Newcastle area but his name evades me for the present.
