The Prospect's Story



The Prospect Italian Bistro is a old building that was a former 19th century school house for children of local miners. This place has changed over the years however, it always has welcomed with a loving and warm environment.


Today the new ownership of our Restaurant/Pub offers a friendly home environment, with a modern new look and excellent handmade food, in a ever-growing caring atmosphere. 


Meals are served daily; including our incredible Sunday lunch. Our Bistro offers an amazing opportunity to taste authentic Mediterranean food, whilst staying close to the origins of the British culture. 




This little gem is situated in front of Herrington Country Park; the largest park in Sunderland and very close to the National Trust’s Penshaw Monument hill. The view is incredible.

Our bistro is to the left of the entrance, and the pub is to the right. The car park is on the opposite side of the main road passing; completely free of charge.
