Anniversary Celebration

We would like to say a huge thanks to all the staff for making our Aunt and Uncle's 50th Wedding Anniversary so lovely. The set up was wonderful - The food was of very good quality and highly recommend the Prawn starter - lamb and the varied list of deserts. Well worth a visit to this little gem!

After a few days of self catering we had a last night treat of no cooking. The service was friendly and attentive and the menu had a good range of options for each course. Portion size is very generous so if you like a pudding, avoid or share a starter. Garlic prawns and lovely retro chicken Kiev recommended as well... More

The food was first class and service extremely good and friendly. Between us we had starters of the soup, goats cheese tart and the black pudding, all beautifully cooked and... More

In the Tyne Valley there are a lot of pubs setting the standard for great food and drink. When we arrived at Winships it was clear even on a Tuesday night that this pub has a great following particularly with the locals who were out in some numbers which is always a good sign. We had for main course chicken... More

had dinner at Winships on my Wifes birthday as we had received several very complimentary reports about the establishment. All I can say is that they were quite right. It may be small, but the welcome we received was 'Typically Northumbrian'. The menu was great and when the food arrived it was brilliant. At the end of the night the... More

Living in the village of Ovington we feel ourselves privileged and spoilt to have this wonderful restaurant on our doorstep. We have had lunch, dinner and special events on many occasions and have never had a bad experience. Norman and his staff provide excellent dishes lovingly prepared and beautifully presented and a warm and friendly welcome. Other reviews have commented... More
