This place serves good honest food, well prepared with friendly service. It was quiet on the night we were there so it was a little lacking in atmosphere, but it was a blustery midweek night in September.

We had a couple of meals here whilst staying in Amble on holiday. I thought the menu was large, varied and well priced, the service was very good and most importantly the food was delicious. The portions were generous and obviously freshly home cooked. There is a large bar area which is dog friendly where you can eat, or a restaurant at the rear of the pub. Nice!

Arrived at The Wellwood in Amble late morning just intending to have a coffee with my elderly Dad. The menu looked so tempting we decided to eat, with lots of locally sourced food and in particular fresh fish we couldn't resist As we were talking about it the place began to fill up and there seemed to be many happy customers and the staff seemed friendly. We weren't disappointed, my Dad thought his fish was the freshest he'd eaten since he was a lad! (he's 84 now). I had the Indian Veggie curry - the veg were perfectly (and without doubt) freshly cooked. The owner was very personable and was quite happy to tell us about his development plans for the pub. It seems he only took over at the start of June but has already made an impact judging by the comments from other customers. All in all a suprising and friendly little pub with lots of potential and definitley one to watch. We'll be back!

Went out with my wife&Daughter for a quiet drink and a meal unfortunatley there were very young and very noisy children being allowed to shout in the bar area and at the bar, we waited until they either left or the staff asked the parents to control them neither happened and it got quite late to order so we went elsewhere, a shame as we've been here before and it was fine with a good outside area and good atmosphere&food but others also seemed to leave early too because of this. We will certainly return but if this is the norm then never again familys fine but eating in a creche no way!
