Besides, She Wouldn't Fit Into the New Restroom

A pub has to turn away a longtime customer.

Peggy, a 12-year-old mare, used to enjoy a pint of beer and a packet of crisps alongside her owner at the Alexandra Hotel in Jarrow.

However, she is no longer allowed to prop up the bar following a refit which included new carpets.

The owner is making the best of it.

Mr Dolan, a 62-year-old retired oil rigger, said: "People come into the pub and the first thing they say is 'Where's Peggy?' "I tell them she's kicked the habit and is teetotal now."
