Unassuming from the outside, but a fabulous restaurant with a fine menu and chef proprietor. Great waiting staff created a good welcome. The confit of duck and local lamb dishes were excellent. the specials alone were enough...... Try this place and be as surprised and delighted as we were.

After reading the positive reviews on Tripadvisor I decided to treat my wife to a surprise lunch. The vegetable and lentil soup was delicious, and I can honestly say the roast beef I had was superb, perfectly cooked beef with really fresh vegetables and a huge Yorkshire pudding. One of the best Sunday lunches I have had in a long... More

Visited Winships with family last Saturday evening fully aware they had a fully booked restaurant that night. Despite being very busy, the food was absolutely delicious and the service friendly and very professional. No undue waiting between courses but also no feeling of being rushed. All courses were excellent but in particular the confit duck and the braised pheasant were... More

Whinships is in our lovely little village just off A69 between Newcastle and Corbridge. Since the last review the Chef - Norman has taken over and has brought the place on in leaps and bounds. You will get 5 star restaurant food at pub restaurant prices expertly prepared and served. If you are staying locally call in on Monday -... More

Do try this place. We ate lunch from the set menu and it was fantastic. Simple, tasty food cooked to perfection with careful attention paid to everything from the succulent meat and the buttered vegetables to the mint sauce made with mint from the herb garden. The desserts were amazing too. Front of house couldn't have been more welcoming or... More
