Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Ordered for takeaway during COVID 19 was outstanding service and the food was the best food I’ve had in a long time ordered 6 meals for all the family, safe environment to pick up with only one family aloud in restaurant to pick up the collection so is safe to do so with hand gel to wash hands as well. Food was still hot by the time I got home so was no bother eating straight away. I will definitely be going again very soon and would recommend this to anyone who fancies somewhere new because the prices are also good for the food you get.

To celebrate a friend’s birthday we booked afternoon tea for 4 people. The weather was terrible outside but the restaurant was cosy and the staff gave us a very warm welcome. Tea or coffee was unlimited and came freely throughout the meal. Couldn’t believe the food when it arrived! It was beautifully displayed and tasted fabulous too. Amazing value and anything we couldn’t eat was cheerfully boxed up for us to take home. We will certainly return and will recommend to everyone. Thank you for a great experience.

Had 3 adults & 1 child’s Sunday lunches delivered yesterday. Booking & arranging delivery time was super easy. Lunches arrived early, it was easy to pay & staff upheld social distancing when delivering. Food was sent with clear & easy instructions on rehearing. Food itself was absolutely beautiful! Portion sizes were ample. Would absolutely order again! Given the current situation, they have done an outstanding job. Thank you!

Family if 6 here for the 1st time. Later afternoon booking but very busy, just starting to get the early 'teatime' crowd. Staff welcoming and pleasant.Good Covid 19 measures in place everything clearly explained before entering restaurant. Quickly shown to our table, drinks orders taken while we veiwed the menu. Potato skins x 3 for us all to share, followed by a selection on dishes, Pizza, Burger, Sirlion steak, Gammon, Crispy belly pork, and Chicken with pancetta . 3 Desserts, Banofee sundae (Delicious as it was my choice), Chocolate brownie, and a Cheese cake. All meals very tasty well presented and at the end of each course all empty plates going back to the kitchen. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals, bonus the restaurant was signed up to the Goverment 50% meal offer. The bottom line would we come back again definately YES with or without any deals. Thanks for our first lovely meal after 'lock down' and what it made more enjoyable it was our daughter/son in laws 20th Wedding Anniv.

Although the food is very nice I feel that it is a bit expensive for what it is. Upon arrival we were invited to take a seat but when the menus were brought over I was told the next time I came I would have to sit in the bar area and not in the restaurant as I had my assistance dog with me. Talk about being treat like a second class citizen. The manager wouldn’t come and discuss this with me I wouldn’t visit this pub again on principle also I wouldn’t want to sit in the bar area to eat my meal. Poor reaction to disability and disabled clients.

I have been to the stack yard many times without and issue. Then yesterday I went with my friends and children for food and a couple of drinks. We ordered porn star martinis which did not come with a shot of Prosecco I asked to speak to a manager about it and she came out with a terrible attitude telling me nowhere gives shots of Prosecco with a porn star martini which is obviously not true. When I told her it wasn’t true she told me I was barred and never to return which is totally unprofessional. Also I ordered the crispy belly pork which came out soggy not crispy at all so I sent it back. I waited 20 minutes before having to go back inside and ask how long it would be, in which time everyone I was with had finished their meals. To my surprise the CRISPY belly pork came back exactly the same but the had laid a piece of crackling on top of my soggy belly pork

We ordered Sunday lunch today-Amazing food as always! Regardless of eating in or delivered to your door during these hard times this place never lets you down. Friendly staff who make you feel welcome and always a great selection of food and drink delivered to a very high standard, one of my favourite places to go. Well done the Stackyard.

During the current crisis Everyone needs a date night and we ordered our takeaway meal from The Stackyard. It arrived spot on time and was hot! The starters were tasty and the main courses were delicious. My husband had steak which was cooked to perfection and I had curry which had come from an Indian curry house! We would certainly recommend their takeaway service which is as good as their restaurant meal when they are open. And we will certainly be ordering again, soon!

First time here since it has been refurbished. Greeting good, and details and temperature taken, seated in conservatory. Drinks and food order taken, then downhill from there. Huge group of men walking through conservatory into marquee, then constant stream of men too and from doors slamming with the wind, so that they could set up a tv in the marquee to watch to football. Pate starter, tasteless. Black pudding starter ok but bacon was thick and horrible. Main of thinly sliced steak sandwich and chips. Nothing thin about the steak and it was like shoe leather. Some of the chips uncooked in the middle. Main of chicken breast with blue cheese sauce and mash and veg. Chicken was slimy, mash was lumpy and dry, as for the blue cheese sauce, disgusting. It was just warm runny cream when I put my fork into the jug of sauce there was a congealed lump of something in the bottom, vile. Didn’t bother with desert. I did say all of this to the girl who served us and she did start to say she was gonna reduce the bill but I stopped her, paid the full bill and left. Wouldn’t go back and wouldn’t recommend.

Ate at the Stackyard for the first time last night, and it didnt disappoint! My wife and I know friends who eat here regularly so we decided to give it a try for ourselves. The food was really good, well priced (even better on the 'eat out to help out' scheme!), and even on this deal they were doing the full menu. I can definitely recommend the Mixed grill, it was huge, and the chips were fantastic! I couldnt eat it all there was that much! My wife had the steak pie which was crammed full of meat, and really tasty. The service was of a really high standard, from start to finish. A big thank you to our waitress, Hannah, she was very pleasant, refilled our drinks without having to wait, and regularly asked if we needed anything else and if all was OK. A great credit to the Stackyard. Covid - this place is all over Covid measures from entering the building to leaving. Temperature checks on the way in, a one way system, gel stations well placed, everything was non contact which is exactly the way it should be at present, and taking our details on the way out in case of the need to contact us. Unfortunately they were so busy with bookings the following week (which is a testiment, not a complaint) that I couldnt get my mother in law booked in. However, this only means we will be along again and may even treat the mother in law to what we found was a very well priced, very good service, and great food establishment! Well done to Hannah all the team at the Stackyard! A very pleasant experience!

Thank you once again for an amazing Sunday lunch. We can’t have lunch together as a family, but we all had the same lunch at 3 different houses thanks to your amazing delivery/takeaway service. There are no pictures of desert as they are all currently in the fridge for when we can move to eat them. Thanks especially for the special dairy free brushetta and Sunday lunch you made for Rachael. I was even kind as there was so much and allowed the dogs a Sunday Roast, which was cleared in seconds I hope you have a lovely family Easter yourselves once you have finished feeding the rest of us

We attended this pub for an evening meal as a group of couples following on from the lockdown period. Very professional set up all our temperatures were taken on entry to the venue. Very good and varied menu offered. As a group of six we were placed in the bar area made to feel very welcome on arrival plenty of meal options on the menu no one in our group ordered the same and all meals were very good. After the the meal we moved into the outside area of the pub to the rear where we continued to drink for as as long as we wanted to. Once outside drinks were ordered via their app. We wil return for another good night out.

My partner and I visited today for Sunday lunch as a birthday treat for me. All Covid rules were in place and we did not feel unsafe. We were seated in the marquee which was spacious and had pleasant decor. We both had the prawn brushetta to start which was a good sized portion, nice and garlicky. The main courses were huge, beef for him and the cauliflower steak for me. Both served with plenty of piping hot vegetables, homemade roasties and Yorkshires with more veg served on the side. We have good appetites but didn't manage to finish it all. Two courses and a bottle of wine for under £40, which was definitely a fair price for the quality and quantity of food. Staff are all pleasant and helpful. We will be back for sure, possibly only opting for the small main course next time 😀

During bizarre times (covid-19) the team at Stackyard delivered! During lockdown they delivered several meals to us despite us being out of catchment area and every time the food was what you should expect from a decent pub. I was dubious at first like anybody would be giving the circumstances but the food was delivered hot and in proper packaging which meant no dishes! It soon became a weekend thing for us and the staff who delivered always had a smile despite the pandemic. They are now looking at opening their pub again (pending government advice) but my message to the Stackyard team is a huge thank you! Once it's safe enough we will be visiting in person but until then we will continue with deliveries. Thank you all, enjoy your rest before you re-open, good luck!!

Had a lovely afternoon yesterday with the parents, brother and nieces. We booked up for a table of 7 and managed to get seated no bother. Food was amazing and so filling and greedily, we decided that we would also have a dessert. If anyone is looking for somewhere to eat out over the summer or whenever then I’d highly recommend visiting The Stackyard Sunderland 🤤 We ate here on a Monday which also qualified for the Eat OUT to Help Out scheme and we ended up having 50% off deducted from the bill. Gutted I didn’t manage to get a photo of the others’ meals but they had all dived in fork first as soon as the food was delivered to the table 🐷
