Our first visit and it was a very enjoyable evening. Plenty of car parking space, bar area for drinks beforehand, place to hang your coats and the main room was set out with table decorations. The food was served per table and promptly. The starter was a cheese soufflé and very tasty. Pork chops with vegetables and potatoes for mains, very nice just needed to be a bigger portion. Chocolate tart for dessert was a little bit bland and heavy but to be fair that is just my personal opinion. I asked if I could have a decaf coffee and the waitress was more than happy to sort this and it arrived very swiftly.

The entertainment was good, disco had everyone up and dancing. Lovely place and we really enjoyed ourselves.

Birthday Sunday lunch. On arrival we were impressed with a grand piano being played in reception. After purchasing drinks in the bar we were shown to our table. A very young waitress asked us if we had visited before and explained that we should choose our starters from the central buffet table, she also told us the choice of roasts which were only beef or gammon, plus salmon or a vegetarian option after which our order for desserts would be taken. We had to ask for the wine list, after ordering wine it was just put on table whilst we were choosing or starter. The choice was quite limited on the buffet table and consisted of small bits of smoked mackerel, salmon, prawns, quiche and mixed salads. I must add our surprise that the counter was not chilled particularly with raw fish being offered. The roast beef looked very dry and over cooked so we chose the gammon. The young boy carving started to cut the end of a small joint which was pure fat. I asked if he could cut some from the new piece which he did but he replied, some people like the fat! Not the right reply! Dessert choice consisted cheesecake, lemon tart, coconut sponge or ice cream. We were never asked if everything was ok. Overall very average lunch, and at £67 for 2 with wine was overpriced for quality and service.

Christmas night out with Zumba Meadowside gym, I've never had such a small Christmas dinner, I know the entertainment and everything else is included in the £50 but really tiny portions two bits of carrot and two sprouts maybe three ounces of turkey and mash, not a roast potato in sight average entertainment. Would not go again

Christmas Pink Ribbon lunch and show was yet again another triumph for The Pavilion. The bar service is prompt, the food is always hot and served quickly on a table by table basis, the tables are always decorated beautifully and the staff are always well organised.

The Pavilion really are the go to establishment for events - incredibly professional all the time.

Well done everyone.

I reviewed this place a couple of years ago but I thought it was worth reviewing it again. Nothing has changed: it was good then and it’s good now. You get a buffet style starter, carvery lunch and then they take your order for pudding. It’s a very relaxed environment with a pianist playing in the reception. The staff are very pleasant and well organised. You do need to book in advance though.
