There were several Queen's Head Hotels in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, at least 3 of them existing together at the same time. The two most famous and longest lived are the old coaching inn which stood on Pilgrim Street and the corner of Grey Street, and the Victorian pub hotel which stood on Clayton Street West and the corner of Pink Lane. The Queen's Head Hotel Quayside (near the Gateshead Millennium Bridge) seems to have been a short-lived affair, established in the 1860s by Samuel Morris. It didn't survive very long:-

London Gazette January 22nd 1867:
"Samuel Morris, late of the Queen's Hotel, Quayside, in the borough and county of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Hotel-keeper, having been adjudged bankrupt under a petition for adjudication of Bankruptcy, filed in Her Majesty's Court of Bankruptcy for the Newcastle-upon-Tyne District, on the 19th day of December 1866....will be held before Theophilus Bennet Hoskyns Abrahall...on the 8th day of February next..."
