Riverside Inn, Thistle Green

It’s been empty for years but the Riverside Inn could soon get a new lease of life with plans to convert the building into shops and flats. Bulldozers moved in on Tuesday 18 June 2019 to clear the way for the revamp.

  1. Just out of interest to those who mentioned the pubs former life; it is shown on 1899 Stockton maps, surrounded by warehouses, granary, houses, graveyard and Hubbards quay. So it probably did see a few things back then.

  2. A well known lad Tony Callaghan in the Stockton dance halls in the late fifties lived in the Three Tuns, Tony went to St Bedes School & was a draughtsman in the Malleable.

  3. How sad to see this happen, I remember having my 18th birthday here in 1976 the 2 guys who ran it were lovely and the staff and customers made it an enjoyable experience anyone remember me? KAY MARSAY

  4. I remember the place when it was the Three Tuns bar and not far away was the seamen’s mission. It was a different world those days??? We had freedom, days before the mobile phone!

  5. It is saddening to see this go. I frequented The Riverside pub in the late 1970s and they put in popular tasty lunchtime sandwiches in the 1980s inside by the front door. I think it was previously The Three Tuns (Tons?) and perhaps was frequented by local sailors.

      • Robbie & Peter had it then. I believe they sold the Riverside and bought a place in Spain and lived there. They ran a very good pub and the meals were very good value. I think the town was a nicer place by far those days.
