The former pub has been closed since May 15 while extensive renovation work takes place. Both businesses are owned by Mitchells & Butlers group.

The change in business has created 30 new jobs.

A spokeswoman said: “Miller & Carter Sunderland are proud to have added talented front of house team members and budding bartenders to its ranks, ready to shake up a cocktail or two and match wines to the perfect steak.”

The chain offers a choice of 12 cuts, including a 30oz Longbone Tomahawk and sirloin, which are reared on sustainable British and Irish farms, before being matured for at least 30 days.
