Couldnt believe this! Im one for ignoring notice boards in bars. I bought a Varsity Card for £2 and it gives you upto 25% off some of the drinks a food in here. Feel like kicking myself... didnt know they had done this coz i spend a small fortune on a weekend. Good one varsity!

Ok so last nyt me and some friends went to go in Varsity, my friends were asked for ID, then when they produced it were told it was too full and that they were too drunk, we had only had 3 drinks previous to that, and the place was obviously emptying out. What a load of crap. Won't be going in there again.

What a shambles last night - got asked for ID, so I said 'ok' and reached into my bag to get it, then me and mates got told we wern't allowed in cos it was too busy (hmm seeing as there was no queue and people were still getting in). Just seemed another excuse. Am I missing something? Was it nappy night or something - cos there were plenty of "obvious" kids getting in there easily. Or is it cos I don't have my bits showing (as most kids do to avoid getting asked for ID). Its a shame cos I love Varsity, but last night just left me really dissapointed in the place. Being 22 I don't expect to be turned away for no good reason, and a 15 year old being let in instead.

What is wrong with you all! Stop slaggin off the best bar in sunderland and get a life! How many people check their watches when thay get to a bar and time themselves getting served? losers...thats who! If you want to get served instantly why not try going to wetherspoons? hear the atmosphere in there is AWESOME! and the music is bangin!

I was in last night - great music as always. When I was standing at the bar I seen a big notice advertising for more bar staff. I hope this resolves the issues raised below. Its not the bar staffs problem that they dont have four pairs of hands. Im sure they try there best!
leave them kids alone

totally agree with comments on bar staff. we always go to varsity and atmosphere is great on match days spesh derby days. However, we were thrown out 6 mins into match when miserable waitress (who bouncer actually told us had complained she was sooo stressed 1hour into her job) dropped one of the plates of food all over. At this point owen scored and my friend who is a scum supporter laughed and waitress complained to bouncers that she wanted us chucked out cos we laughed at her dropping the plate. Nothing to do with her being embarrassed and all. Needless to say we are all complaining but had a better and cheaper time in Paddy Whacks. Must add bouncers were great and totally on our side...

do you think it makes you rock solid if you know the bouncers like? i would do the same if you came to the bar and looked under age, it'd be her that got the fine if anythin happened, get a grip, what the hell, did you wake up the next morning and think, "i must comment on this on the website its a damn outrage", little bit sore coz you got a lil embarrassed when you couldnt get served are you? pathetic
