Has this place turned into alcoholicsville? Whenever i walk past there always seems to be a handfull of people sitting outside drunk off there trolleys, shouting the odds. Its really off putting to walk past never mind go in. Its a shame, this bar used to be quite a decent place and the cocktails were fab.It was never my favourite bar but on i night out we'd always pop in for a drink or two.

Went to this place on Saturday and reported that two young girls had went into the mens toilet with an older man. The bar manager did his duty and ran upstairs and found them "at it" he then reported this to his manager who I suppose was the owner? (cockney) the reply was "oh I know". Even if the girls were out for a bit of money it does not mean his customers can take part in sex in the toilets.

Like the place particuarly for food. I'm sure they used to have cask Double Maxim on there.I recall having a top pint of the stuff in the place. Don't know why it was taken off.

Top pub, great old SAFC/Vaux memorablia on the wall. Agree it would be nice if they had the cask on. I remember having a cracking pint of Samson in there about a year ago.

Had my lunch in there last week top scran. A cask Double Maxim would have gone down well with it.

Used to like the place. In last week and the bottle of Double Maxim went up from £2 to £2.40 ! Why don't you get cask Double Maxim in it tends to be cheaper !

also to candyhouse if your on myspace you can find me there myspace.com/djhutchy be nice to have another friend within sunderland promoting good music!
23rd April 09
yes i most certainly will do that! and to "dj within town" yes i agree with what you say on the commercial remixes because people recognise the tune behind the music but also like you say people have lost the love for house music which is a shame to say the least but hey ya never know people might come around to the fact that house music is great! i mean its where electro and funky house originates from at the end of the day! i jus wish the best for what these guys are doing! and where i dj is rather close to porterfield so i wil defo be showing my face to give the support!

Yea i love house music and i love electro, but the simple fact is, house will not work in sunderland in a bar or nightclub comapared to other genres of music for the simple fact that it has died. yea sum people might like it the the majority per other things, that i why i beleive atm electo is gonna be the next big thing like funky house was two years ago, because there is so much you can do with it and you find the likes of the glass spider DJ on a fri and sat playing that sort of music just like few other DJ's playing electo remixes of big commercial tunes and they are going down like a storm. house would never have the same effect now

re: candyhouse, yes i totally agree bein a dj in town myself people have lost the passion for good house music! bein an old skool fanatic myself i really hate the fact that nowhere in town has a different music policy other than cheesy pop and "electro" (and i think also some dj's dont understand what "electro" is either) so there ya have it theres my point across! I really hope this works and people appreciate it a lil more! good luck!
