Love this bar but find it really irritating when they have you standing in a queue outside when inside is not really busy. I could see the bar staff had no one to serve on Saturday but still had to wait in a queue for 15 mins. (I must be mad)

I left a comment on here May 2008 and was right - closed due to the attitude and poor management. People avoided the place as the doorstaff were menacing, bar staff totally boring, prices too high....etc etc etc.....yes you are another statistic as I correctly predicted. just hope you pay off your debts to the people you owe.

Spoke to the agent direct myself as my company was really interested in looking at this place. Said the previous owner had disappeared off the map since it shut (which in my experience means without doubt only one thing, That more money is owed than first stated to agent and the agent only knows half the story, which is common in the licensed trade, 99 percent of sales are for reasons that the bar is losing money but the owners refuse to supply agents with this information). This was about three weeks ago and I have heard nothing since. The agent dealing with it is well known in Sunderland and I can't really see it being them dragging their feet to be honest. The owner used to have Berlins (now Rush) before Boab and made a pigs ear of that one aswell so with my limited knowledge of the owner I can only summize he's buried his head. Anyway, we are still as interested as ever in this place as we feel traded right, it is without doubt one of the best locations in town. If we don't get it then, to be brutally honest, the very best of luck to the people who do as this is a gold mine for a good operator, and only shows the stubborn nievity of the old owner.

Re: Stewart, we have had exactly the same experience; we expressed an interest in Boab 6 weeks ago and the owners of the lease seem totally disinterested in actually getting back to us in order to sell it.
