Please identify this pub in Newcastle

UPDATE: The pub’s been found. “Found the pub! It’s the Crown hotel in Cricklewood North London. Prompted by this discussion to buy the DVD and it says the Crown hotel on the window. It’s quite a building.” from

Can you identify this pub in the Newcastle area, used in the 1964 episode of Our Friends in the North? It’s a lovely building. Google says the Wolsington at Smiths Docks in North Shields but it isn’t that one. 

I wrote to the author of Newcastle’s Old Pubs and he said that he couldn’t place it in Newcastle or even in the North East.
