Sunderland Guide: The Mountain Daisy
Location: 150 Hylton Rd, Sunderland SR4 7NX, a two minute walk from Millfield Metro Station
The Mountain Daisy is a historic pub located in the Millfield area of Sunderland, just west of the city centre. A historic venue which boasts to be one of the oldest continuously run pubs in the area, the Mountain Daisy was opened in the year 1902 and was designed by local architects W. & T. R. Milburn.
Complete with several function rooms, the Mountain Daisy has a highly elegant antique interior which includes a ceramic bar (one of just 14 in the entire UK), titled walls, a mosaic floor and two grand fireplaces. It also hosts seven tiled paintings depicting areas throughout the North East, including: Newcastle; Durham Cathedral; Wearmouth Bridge, Sunderland; Finchale Abbey; Marsden Rock and its grotto; Bamburgh Castle; and Cragside, Rothbury.
Sometimes overlooked because it is not in a prime city centre spot, the Mountain Daisy nonetheless holds its own against other classical pubs in Sunderland such as the Dun Cow and the Peacock. With such a unique, well designed and historic interior, the Mountain Daisy is a splendid bar to visit and can be easily reached by taking the Tyne & Wear Metro to the Millfield station.
As of 2022, Sunderland Global Media is also glad to announce we have made the Mountain Daisy our first official pub partner, and will be working hard to promote the venue. In turn, we have immediately ordered over 250 SGM themed beer mats for it!
