I'm glad that some others have come to the same conclusion as me. It has to be either the Broomhill Hotel or the Grey Arms but given that the original newspaper report that set me thinking quite clearly said Pettigrew Arms, North Broomhill then I can only assume that it is the Broomhill Hotel.

In the 1911 Census Henry Pettigrew has moved to Cramlington so he possibly named the hotel after himself while he owned it. When he died in 1945 his address was The Grove, Gosforth which at the time was one of the most expensive streets in Newcastle so he did very well out of selling beer to miners.
