It’s been months since customers were last able to enjoy a pint or a glass of wine at a restaurant or pub.
Customers were able to visit a beer garden for the first time since November last year on Monday, April 12 as businesses across Sunderland reopened.
Some venues require a booking to visit, while others are on a first come first served basis.
Here’s nine beer gardens that are taking bookings.
1. Stack, Seaburn
Stack in Seaburn is taking bookings only. Customers can book a table via their website https://www.stackseaburn.com/booking/
