The Pavilion in Backworth is less than 3 miles away from B&Q and just off the A19 near the Cobalt Business Park. When we lived in Wallsend we used to be frequent visitors however we realised we hadn't visited for a good few years so decided to pop in on our latest B&Q jaunt.
The Pavilion is a SJF pub (who also own Cafe Royal in Newcastle city centre) however it really does not feel like a chain and has a modern but cosy feel.
We decided to order from the express lunch menu and both decided on a hot roast beef stottie with gravy and fries. Our roast beef was tender and actually tasted like it had been carved from a joint of beef in the kitchen rather than frozen and re-heated, the stottie was fresh and soft and the jug of gravy a welcome (if messy) addition. The fries were lovely and crisp and very well seasoned. Lunch was definitely good value for money at only £6.50 per head plus drinks.
The Pavilion was fairly busy for a lunchtime during our visit with a few people holding meetings in the bar and a mix of couples, families and friends meeting for lunch. There were a few offers that really caught our eye and mean we'll probably be back sooner rather than later:-
Kids also EAT FREE every day throughout half term - a deal certainly worth considering.
