We used to come here for primarily drinks so decided to mix it up and have some of the food from the carvery. Never tasted anything like it - food was like it came out of a can. Mucky tables clearly not wiped. I believe the restaurant is closed now as well as the bar, and about time too.

When we went the food area was shut (permanantly) the bar was populated by a few unsavoury characters but then looking around it was easy to see why, I am not sure what a night out in Ashington is like now but there must be better than this. Our main observation was no loo roll in the Ladies There were a few black serviettes on the floor apparently. Shame!

I brought my wife to Flavour Bar for a Valentines Meal on 14th Feb as we couldnt believe it was only £20 for two people, we did wonder if maybe the food was going to be crap but we thought we would give it a try! When we walked into the bar part we thought it looked a bit bare but our waitress showed us into the main restaurant which had been decorated in true romantic style with heart garland, little tea lights and tables spaced apart so we had our privacy, the backgroud music was lovely aswell and really got me in the mood as im normally not a fan of valentines day!
We order prawn cocktals for starteds which was lovely, i ordered steak for my main and when it came i couldnt believe the size of it, mt wife had the chicken pasta and the chunks of chicken we gorgeous, we thought for £20 there had to be a catch, luckily for us i was wrong, we enjoyed a fab 3 course meal with a free bottle of wine, a great service from a lovely young lady (you know who you are) and were very pleased. We then went into the bar to watch the match, it was great to see what once had been a dying bar so full of people laughing and enjoying themselves, free snacks which we couldnt stomach and great drinks prices, you would think i was a salesman for the place, i really cant fault it and i take my hat off to the young couple who are there everyday trying to make their bsiness work, keep it up guys and we will see you at the weekend! from Steven and Paula.

Restaurant was quiet, carvery available which we got. Fair priced, kids liked giant Yorkshire puddings. Not certain about hygiene standards though, cutlery looked a little grubby.
