Popular Sunderland pub on the market for the first time in 20 years through Christie & Co

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has been instructed to market The Albion, a popular pub in Roker, Sunderland.


Occupying a two-storey property in a busy housing area, The Albion is ideally located along an established drinking circuit, within walking distance to the Stadium of Light, the River Wear. The pub is well maintained throughout with a bar and spacious lounge area, as well as large living accommodation and a good-sized beer garden to the side.

The Albion presents a great opportunity for an owner-operator to purchase a large, well-positioned and supported business, and to operate along the same lines as the current owner. Alternatively, an experienced operator or multi-site operator could expand the current offering and run the business as a managed house.

The pub has been owned and operated by Ann and Bob Taylor for the past 20 years and has come to market as they look to retire. They comment, “The Albion is a real hub of the community where people of all ages and from all walks of life come and meet. It is what a true pub should be; a place to meet for any occasion. It has not been an easy decision to place The Albion for sale, however, after more than 20 years in the industry, it is time for us to both enjoy a much-needed retirement.”

Marslie McGregor, Business Agent at Christie & Co who is handling the sale, comments, “This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a well-known community pub in the heart of Roker. Close to Sunderland’s Stadium of Light and part of an established drinking circuit, we anticipate a good level of interest in The Albion and look forward to securing a buyer for Bob and Ann.”
