Sunderland pub to remain open after going into administration

Written by on 13th May 2024

Greens pub, located in the heart of Sunderland City Centre will remain open after going into administration.

It was part of a group of 25 pubs in Northeast and Yorkshire to go into administration.

The pub was formerly owned by Blackrose, however, after going into administration, it was taken over by Queensway Hospitality.

Greens is very important to the local community, offering an array of drinks and music to it’s customers and as one of the city’s most historic pubs opening in 1901, its longevity has made it a key part of the city’s nightlife.

It also offers a space for people to socialise, either with their friends or the people who work there, which can help people who may be suffering from loneliness.

Located just a short walk from the Stadium of Light, it is also popular with fans of Sunderland Football Club, who commonly visit before and after matches.

The pub certainly has a connection not only to the city but also to the people that regularly visit.

The video below features an interview with Ethan Slater, a bartender at Greens.
