user reviews of the Wellington, Riding Mill

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

I arrived at this Chef & Brewer establishment at the same time as a large group of people emerged from a hedge in the car park. Had I been a minute earlier, I would have probably got served. But my visit had coincided with a rowdy lot who had arrived on the train. Judging by the previous review, this appears to be a popular local pursuit on this rail line (more of that in my next review in Corbridge). Ales were fairly mainstream - Morland Old Golden Hen, Black Sheep Best Bitter & Greene King IPA. The only different beer was Wylam Gold Tankard. Bar staff hadn't got the faintest idea who was next in the queue to get served. So I waited for 5-10 minutes. The interior has a bit more character than other Chef & Brewer branches. There were some secluded corners being enjoyed by diners, whilst revellers chose to sit on the large patio at the front, enjoying the summer sunshine. You know what you're getting with Chef & Brewer and it isn't too much.

The first port of call on a rail crawl to Carlisle it was surprisingly busy for 11.30am on a thursday. Handily placed for the station this place is large and very well appointed inside and has a large and pleasant outdoor seating area should the weather permit. An extensive menu is available and 4 hand pulled real ales are on offer from larger national brewers.

This place is the victim of its own success. Dont go near it on a Sunday or Bank Holiday. Otherwise the beer is Ok and the food is above average bar food. The service can be slow. Visit it for lunch on the first Monday after the kids go back to school.

A warm country pub serving great foor all day long. Great atmosphere and food however the service leaves much to be desired!
