I think Vaux used to brew that and Youngs of London make it now.

They were selling it in Chaplins about a month ago.

There's scaffolding around the Cavern pub (formerly the Corner House) on the Exchange roundabout, Sans Street/High Street East. It looks like they've removed the roof, which was damaged by fire a year or more ago, so I wonder whether it's being rebuilt, or demolished?

I've long though that would make a terrific student pub, even if it meant being taken over by the dreaded Scream chain. Besides the Uni-sponsored bars, Sunderland doesn't really have a proper student pub, though obviously some places attract a large student contingent. Interesting that Sunderland's Varsity isn't really a student pub at all, despite Varsity being a student-orientated franchise elsewhere in the country.

I think it's in a great location, especially if the eastern half of the city centre continues its regeneration, and the university continues to thrive.

I haven't heard of anyone mention this place, ---I read something about it's History, --and apparently --John Hurt the Actor, ---his Father worked in the Vicarage at some time, --would be good to see the new Bar/Bistro do well though.

I was in Watermans in the Eastend yesterday and they have done a very good job with it. Some cracking old photos of the Eastend/Hendon on the walls including one of the original Watermans pub.

I've been meaning to have a pop down, it looks like they've done a superb job. It's about the East End - Sunderland's hidden gem - was helped along with some private development. Is the bar open all day? And until what time?

I hear the city centre is to attain a third Wetherspoons pub? In the old Blu Bambu/Beach nightclub, on Albion Place. It's certainly well located, and hopefully will bring Bar One in from the cold.
