We have compiled a list of 9 pubs from Sunderland’s past which most get you talking.
Each of them has been spotlighted on the Echo Facebook page or on our Wearside Echoes page on Facebook. It’s the Sunderland Echo’s page which is dedicated to nostalgia and has more than 5,500 members.
Over the years, we have featured photos of hostelries from Wearside’s past and these are the ones that you love to share memories about.
Take a look and then get in touch to tell us more.
Here is a photo of Brogans in 2005. Back in 2018 when we featured the pub plenty of you commented. Kyle Gibson said it was "class. Used to go for a pint after work on a Friday and dance the soles off me flossys on a saturday."
Helen Bell "Loved this place" and Clair Maidens recalled: "Lots of good memories in here. Simon Grundy always playing our requests."
John Little commented: "Class best pub in town at the time I had some great nights in there."

2. The Grindon Mill
A Chester Road favourite. In 2019, Pam Broadbent commented: "Loved the Grindon Mill, great friendly atmosphere" and John Hall aid: "Yep many great times in the mill."
3. The Continental
Here is a view of the Continental in 1982. Wearside Echoes follower Bernard Joseph Gordon said: "Back in the day, with new suit from Weaver to Wearer and winkle pickers shoes, my favourite pub, loved it, oh happy days."
Cecilia Buick said: "Had a fantastic ballroom and the cocktail bar next to it was THE place to have a function in early 70’s."

4. The Upper Deck
We asked readers in August last year 'If you could bring one bar, pub or restaurant back from Sunderland's past - which one would you choose?' The Upper Deck was a popular choice with readers including Steve Ruffell, Michelle Hunter and Michael Rodgerson.
