We visited this pub before mothers day because we knew it would be full, we went after reading this pub had been awarded " pub of the year 2011" by a local newspaper, we dont think it should have been awarded then and we dont think it will get pub of the year 2012, unless as other people have mentioned you like yorkshire puddings but we need more than that. Its in a lovely setting in the old Killingworth Village, very small car park, the neighbours must love all the cars strewn along the street. The access is poor, very high steps, certainly not disabled friendly. We entered the bar, then we had to negoiate a narrow passage round to the conservatory for our table, the pub was busy, tables all over the place, mind you dont trip over the fire hearth like I nearly did! We were told we had a choice of carvery, main menu, and specials board, what specials board, it was blank! the menu is really bland, im no Gordon Ramsay but I could easily knock up any of those meals on that menu, so we chose the carvery. this is in the conservatory and makes everything cramped, we had to wait while the " chef" made two trips to go and get the yorkshire puddings and then more vegetables, where is the kitchen staff? and could someone open the windows it was a pleasant afternoon and getting uncomfortably hot in that conservatory. It was the usual carvery fare, three choices of meat with vegetables roast potatoes or mash, some soggy but ok. we were glad to get out and apart from apint in the beer garden we wont be returning, if this pub gets any more awards, i will stand tapping in fenwicks window!
