The History of this building goes back more then 160 years. It is the FIRST hotel in New Brighton, then known simply as 'The New Brighton Hotel'.



Note - The current name is suppose to refer to the original one-legged diver that used to draw attention of passengers disembarking fron New Brighton ferry-boats in the early part of the 20th Century by plunging into the river from the end of the pier for the prospect of a few coppers. However, it would appear that Peggy'd surname has been spelt incorrectly; his proper name being Peggy (or Pegleg) Gadsby.

Many happy hours playing pool (badly) in there in the 1980's when it was The Neptune. It was a bit of a dump at the time but the pool tables were out of the way of the bar down in the area by the front windows, so, being teenagers with not much cash to spare, you could block the pockets and play all afternoon for 20p (or was it 10p).

I was mates wiv the girl who lived there-joanne i think? When it was the neptune. She showed me the upper rooms.
I remember one room had a tiny little table with 2 chairs and a bottle of beer on the table. Very dusty+ old but also looked like the room had only just been vacated. Very eerie looking when your 11 or 12.

This place has reopened today 2 April, and is now called New Brighton Hotel and Stag Bar and Restaurant. Don't know what it's like yet.
