Just been with a group of friends for lunch (for the first time). Wonderful atmosphere, good food well cooked, and great staff. Cannot fault it. Will definitely go back again soon.

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

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

We have now visited Winships on more than one occasion for Sunday lunch and have never been let down. The food is of a very good standard and the service and attention given by the staff during our visit was excellent. If you like black pudding can I suggest you have the starter it was well worth trying. Keep up... More

If you like your meat cooked to the consistency of the Roman leather sandals on display at nearby Vindolanda, then this is the place for you. To be fair, when we arrived the staff warned us that it was their fixed-price night with only mixed grill on offer. Having read glowing reviews on TripAdvisor and having three children in tow...

Having been for a ride out in the car my wife and I chanced upon this little gem. 10/10 for service, cleanliness, atmosphere, and food. Ample portions, my wife had the burger, boy what a burger, it ended up in a doggy bag to finish off at home. I had the confit duck, again awesome.What more can I say, its... More
