The Burton House

  • Description

    "Old pub on Borough Road east of the city centre in Sunderland. At first floor level can still be seen the sign for Vaux Breweries, meaning this was once one of their tied houses. This brewery was a major employer in Sunderland, with a huge brewery on the banks of the Wear. Sadly now all gone, although some of the original beer is still produced by a small local brewer."
