Nine pictures from Chaplins over the years, the ever-popular Sunderland pub

SAFC fans, diners and the pub's football team

We're going down the pub.

And this time, it's Chaplins in Stockton Road which gets our retro attention.

We gathered up 9 photos from the Sunderland Echo archives to show you everything from SAFC fans watching their team on the TV, to people having lunch outside the pub on a sunny afternoon in 2007.

And if you were a part of the Chaplins FC team, we've got that too.
