13 beer gardens in Sunderland taking walk-ins.

For the city’s licensed premises, this will be the first public holiday they will have been able to open for indoor drinks and dining.

However with the forecast for sunshine and warm temperatures it is expected most drinkers will want to head to a beer garden over the bank holiday.

Some venues require a booking to visit, but many across the city are offering tables for walk-ins.
