Sunderland has had many a good boozer, few of them in trouble now.

Sunderland pub workers fear for jobs after owners of The Chesters, Chaplins and The Blue Bell go into administration

In years gone by, there were a few well known one's, The Beehive, Old 29, Black Bull to name a few.

What's been your favourite chosen ale house?

Must admit, the blue bell was always one of mine.

I remember The Chesters opening.  Late 'fifties, I think.  The Blue Bell had,at that time, a very popular traditional jazz band upstairs on Saturday nights and it was invariably packed out.  The one I remember most was The Pineapple near the north end of Wearmouth Bridge.  The whole area around it was rubble.  No houses, no nothing, just rubble.  They'd had a direct hit aimed at the shipyards.  And yet, for some reason, The Pineapple survived, and stood there like Stonehenge or something.  Funny to see.

I have great memories from the early 70s onwards, when i spent most of my time in The Brittania in Cleadon, the Gluepot under the Roker Hotel, Mr Jenkins Club, Annabels, the Rosedene, and the Red Lion at West Boldon which was beside where i lived. But if forced to narrow it down for the best memories it would be the Brit and Jenkys Club.

Also, The Clarendon, down by the docks on High Street East.
Brilliant pub with only one bog to piss in, actually shagged a barmaid from there one time.
She lived in the Garth's.

Started my drinking career in the Royal Marine in the early seventies, but a crawl would usually include the Blue Bell, the Cliff (played Sunday football for them) and the Roker. Later in the 70's when more mobile our base was the Britannia at Cleadon. In town, most of those mentioned above!!!

Our paths must have crossed in the Brit. I used to live in Cleadon back then as did a few of my friends. We are the same age too. Did you know Ian Ford or Lee Monaghan or Steve Jeffrey?

The Welly in Ryhope was a big part of my youth, but sadly now lies derelict..

Don't remember any of them. Used to go in with Steve and Jeff Channon. Played Golf at South Shields GC. Do you remember Alison who worked behind the bar, Liz Eckford or Pauline Woolgar?
