Bull Lane Brewing Company

The Clarendon, High Street East, Sunderland, Tyne & Wear, SR1 2BL  tel: (0191) 5103200

Away from the throbbing 21st Century City Centre of Sunderland, but perched on high over a bend in the Wear affording fabulous river views to its rear is the unassuming Clarendon pub.

There is a dim passage at the side with a sign revealed only by the flash of the camera.

But there's also a trap door in the floor at the far end of the taproom - some of us mistakenly thought the disabled loo was the way down to the brewery. To identify the hand see the next picture!

Wakefield Chairman Mark Goodair learns that this truly basic microbrewery probably has the best technical support of any brewery in the country - from Brewlab at the Darwin Annexe of Sunderland University!

Yes,the 2 barrel plant is one of those "If it ain't broken, don't fix it operations"
