Inside it was dark, there was banging hardcore rave music on (not my taste I accept) which was totally out of keeping with the middle aged people eating here. My partners steak was supposed to be well done but was inedible, burnt to a crisp. It looked like brown crispy bacon. The thrice cooked chips we had are trendy I... More

Sorry the food was not of the standard you expected.. I will address this with the chefs on duty.... However a well done steak has many variations, being a chef for 49.8 years I have come across every expectation of well done! We normally ask ..well done no pink at all, well done crisp outside, or just plain knackered... i.e.... More

Always been a fan of the Wellwood, the carvery is legendary locally (for good reason!) but this visit just didn't go well. Only called in for a pint while we waited for a takeaway to be prepared down the road, so there shouldn't have been much that could have gone wrong, but the staff were surly and generally unpleasant and...

Staff are friendly and welcome dogs openly. This was my favourite pub in Amble. But it has seriously let it self down. The staff are very welcoming. But it is the selection of beer and especially the wine that is below standard I think it needs to find its true identity and at the minute it is lost. Also the... More

During our week's stay in Amble we ate at the Wellwood on 3 evenings. Each time the staff were very friendly, the meals were amazing and our dog was made very welcome. Had our holiday been longer, we would have been back to The Wellwood again. The best liver and onions in the world !

We booked having really enjoyed our family meal here before only to find it as all changed. Judging by the reviews it's absolutely fine but we were looking forward to a wider range on the menu. When we arrived we weren't acknowledged that we were there, we were left with a busy waitress hurrying in and out of the kitchen... More
