    Go early - Sunday roast parsnips were crisp, no cauliflower cheese. Check your chair - my husbands collapsed under him.

    I had the spiced burger and it was heavenly. The spices, mango and coleslaw were so well balanced and tasted amazing. The staff were welcoming, accommodating and the experience as a whole was one of the best I've had in ages. I hope that I will have the pleasure of returning in the future. For now, please know that myself and the party I was with, appreciate your hospitality and the culinary expertise put into the menu. Thank you for an amazing final meal!

    Food was very poor. Carvery meat very tough and chewy, veg watery and tasteless potatoes dry and lumpy was awful! My partner had other food from menu and although he said it was ok the quality was poor. We will definitely not dine there again

    The Sunday lunch was fantastic, (other than the beef had dried out a bit at the edges), the pork was soft, tender and tasty and the veggies were lovely. The staff were all very efficient and professional. Saturday night entertainment was a bonus. Thank you, Anna

    Enjoyed a lovely meal at the Wellwood pub whilst staying in Amble on holiday. Food was good, not too long a wait for it to arrive considering it was quite busy and staff were very pleasant . We sat in the dining room but they also serve food in the bar if you can get a seat!

    We went here for Sunday lunch carvery and chose the standard plate which is 11.99. There was a choice of 4 meats with roast and mashed potatoes and roast parsnip. Plenty of veg to chose from and a Yorkshire pudding. The gravy was nice and thick. The staff told you when it was turn to go up for your carvery and although they was families in it wasn't overly noisy, and we didn't feel rushed All in all a pleasant experience
