Paid another visit recently, the ale selection appeared to have changed from last time. 7 ales plus 2 ciders on at the time of my visit. I had a pint of Citra Pale by Saltaire at £3.65.

Well worth a visit.

Called in yesterday early evening after hearing good things about this pub.

On entering there is a long imposing bar to the left, with seating to the front and side. It was pretty full at the time of my visit but I just managed to find a table and seat. The bar boasted 12 hand pumps, at the time of my visit 7 offering real ales and 3 real ciders.

Ales were Camerons Strongarm, Camerons Pressgang, Titanic Cap Smith's, Cullercoats Northdown, Camerons Northern Line Stout, Bourbon Stout, and Fell Mosaic Oatmeal Pale (OPA). Plenty of different styles and strengths.

Ciders were Thatchers Cheddar Valley, Lilleys Strawberry, and Gwynt y Ddraig Celtic Warrior.

I went for a pint of the Fell OPA, 4.5% and set me back £3.65. Not sure how this rates for the area, but the pint was in good condition, a nice hoppy pale ale, and was just what I was hoping for, slipped down nicely.

A mix of people in, students and a more mature crowd too. The people on the table next to me were having a discussion about 60s documentaries and the arts. You know the sort. Better than a pub full of riff-raff though!

There was a connecting door to a room behind the bar - not sure if this was a further bar area or something else.

Would happily make a return visit, and would recommend to anyone who likes decent real ale in a nice pub.

I visited this pub on a pub crawl of Sunderland. There was a large selection of 12 beers from independent breweries including Jarrow Rivet Catcher and American IPA, all in great condition. Local pamphlets on ale trails and brewery news are available. Both the barman and the locals were friendly and were happy to give information on the area and directions. Superb!!

Large old style Victorian town pub with plenty of local aes on and a few others. Didn't come across a better pub in the town.

Probably the best pub in Sunderland now, with an excellent range of well-kept ales, nicely restored surroundings and good service. Proper drinker's pub, no food or screens.
