The Dun Cow is the finest example of an Edwardian gin palace in Sunderland.
Holds a free comedy night on the first Thursday of the month, attracting TV name comedians.
Rising from a plinth of grey granite, the elevations have the animated plasticity typical of the Edwardian Baroque style. The most remarkable feature of the interior is the decorative screen behind the bar, which fuses oriental and Gothic motifs into a bar resembling a theatrical stage set.
Inside the central arch is a cow's head, a playful reference to the pub's name. Overall, the Dun Cow is an intoxicating fusion of Baroque and Art Nouveau devices, a heady concoction which is thoroughly appropriate for a rich turn-of-century pub.
