    About to undergo major changes. Pete the manager has left, the bar is being ripped out of the middle and moved to the back wall. Major revamp apparently, hopefully some of the sweaties will leave.

    I sometimes play gigs in Sunderland my memory of playing there was playing to 8 people. Its awkward because the bar covers most of the room downstairs.

    Saw a picture earlier.

    It certainly is a sad day.

    The camera is same as my view when I gigged there - I requested my band played punk rock and classic rock.

    Was talking to Pete a couple of weeks ago. He's probably off round Europe travelling.

    New people running the place when it reopens.

    Hope not I've played some brilliant gigs in Whitby only to see a great vintage pub turned into a dancefloor karaoke.

    It's been a constant all my drinking days but I vaguely remember the stairs running straight up the middle of the bar splitting it in two rooms .Couple of cosy gigs with the now 1977

    to be fair people dont use them but then whinge when they are gone. in terms of “proper” you are probably left with the vaults, kings arms, burton house, sinatras, cant think of many others that arent nice refit food serving places that change hands regularly

    Sinatra was a chip shop
    Hardly traditional British boozer inside
