About
The Old Ash Dene in Ashington is a family-friendly pub with a big heart! A great atmosphere, smiley staff, delicious food, and good beer make us the kind of pub you want to spend time in. And when it’s nice, you can sit out on the patio and chill. Choose from a big selection of drinks at the bar. We have everyday draught beers, real ales, and party favourites like prosecco and cocktails. Plus soft drinks and coffee. When you order a main meal off the food menu, we pop a penny in the charity chest. Food is served every day until late. Have a bit of what you fancy and feel good with every mouthful.
