With the recent sunshine showing signs of spring, we look at Sunderland’s best beer gardens.
1) Revolution Terrace
The terrace on the top floor of the popular bar is a great place to relax in the sunshine with a drink. Situated on Low Road, the terrace will be a very popular place during the summer as the sun shines on Sunderland.
2) The Wolsey
Situated in a great location, close to the marina, seafront and the university, The Wolsey is a traditional pub boasting a bar full of beers including guest ales, with a large outdoor patio area for punters to enjoy their day in the summer sunshine with a cold drink.
3) The Lambton Worm
The small outdoor area at the back of the JD Wetherspoons branch allows you to watch the world go by with a cold drink, and with drinks relatively cheap, there is no excuse not to enjoy the evening sunshine after a long day of work.
4) Martino’s Bar
Located perfectly on the Seaburn seafront, Martino’s Bar is a great location to enjoy a cold drink outside in the summer sun. With four branches across Tyne and Wear, the Italian restaurant inside can give you and your family the perfect summer evening with great food and drink.
Only built six years ago, Ttonic’s beer garden in the centre of Sunderland has proved to be a very popular location for punters. The bar regularly advertise beer garden drink specials throughout the summer, and with live sport also being shown on the TV, there is something for everyone.
6) The Chesters
The Chester Road pub has arguably the biggest beer garden in the list and offers an excellent selection of drinks and food in comfortable surroundings. Having previously served as a vicarage until 1954, the front of the pub has a patio and garden area where you can enjoy a drink or dine al fresco when the sun shines down.
7) Port of Call
Last but certainly not least on the list, the fairly new Park Lane three-floor bar has two outdoor terraces, speciality craft beers and rum drinks, and a kitchen that serves a range of dishes. The centre of Sunderland bar is a perfect place to wind down and relax with a drink after a long day at work or even if you just want to enjoy the sunshine.
