A family of 5 with a zest for life

A quick lunch at The Pavilion, Backworth

We are at that time of our lives where trips to ikea and B&Q seem to be more and more frequent and dare I say it, actually enjoyable! Yes, we have even been known to make a day of it! We are clearly getting old. The food options at both of these places are very limited however (although I really can't resist a 9 item ikea breakfast and unlimited coffee for £2.25)

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.

  1. Ooh you should've got the sweet potato fries with that stottie! Delicious:) I love the pavilion; I just wish the beer garden was enclosed from the car park so I could go with the kids!

    1. Ah man! We only read the lunch menu so didn't realise they served fries! Next time!
