We rocked up at Winships last night and fortunate to get a table for two in this busy and friendly establishment. The service is excellent and the menu varied with an outstanding choice of starters and main course - we were too full full to even look at the dessert menu! Starters of Crab Cakes and Garlic King Prawns were... More

Two visits to Winships in the last month emphasised the excellent standard of food preparation and presentation. The first was for their once a month two course special evening menu and the second for a private lunchtime buffet. On both occasions the food was of the highest quality and the service complemented this. I have no hesitation in recommending this... More

On a circular walk from Ovingham ('Ovingjum') along the Tyne and through Whittle Dene, Winships at Ovington was a welcome stop for morning coffee. A large cafetière was generous for the price, and then 'all-in' came two goodly pieces of 'whisky-tea-bread'. Chatting to Caroline, it became clear that consideration of a visit for lunch would be worth a trip. Home... More

I live in the village so I'm lucky enough to visit Winships every now and again for a treat. My last visit was towards the end of April and I had the steak and mushroom pie with monster chips. The food was very nicely presented (as you will see from the photo) and tasted lush! It was a big portion... More

Visited Winships yesterday with a family relation for dinner. Two course dinner for £19.90 and a Special for £11.95, excellent value for excellent food superbly cooked by Norman. All mains were delicious and came with ample vegetables, all perfectly cooked. Two glasses of wine and three after-dinner coffees brought the bill to under £70. We were the only diners during...

It's be a while since my last visit, years in fact, but last night was a really pleasant surprise and a great evening. The restaurant is under new management, since my last visit, and place is much friendlier and welcoming. The food is still in the steady ands of Norman, but I think he's evolved and the food was really... More
