Un-rivalled views both up the River Wear over the Sunderland Fish Quay towards Wearmouth Bridge, and downstream towards the Sunderland Marina, considered to be some of the best views in Sunderland East End.

Our outside terrace has plenty of seating and tables, it is covered, heated and makes a great reception venue for any event. Direct disabled access from the car park too.

Relax out here with your coffee and you could see a cargo ship arriving into the River Wear to tie up quite close, or watch the fishing fleet arrive to unload their catches just 200 metres upriver.

The Wearmouth Bridge is within easy view upriver with all of the traffic moving across, the Sunderland University is directly across from the Boars Head, with the National Glass Centre just next door.

We are situated on the south-side of the River Wear, in the original Sunderland East End next to the Fish Quay and Port of Sunderland. We are only a 5 minute walk away from Sunderland City Centre and 'Metro' train network which can take you to nearby Newcastle-upon-Tyne within 30 minutes and Newcastle International Airport in less than an hour.

Free car parking facilities available too, with disabled access directly onto our outside terrace. If you are interested in staying at the Boars Head Bistro, Coffee Shop & Boutique Hotel in Sunderland East End call us on 0191 514 4012 for further information, availability and prices.
