A spacious, contemporary venue with a reputation for excellent food.

Good Pub food the way it should be! 

Since opening in 2009, The Pavilion has gained a local following for its excellent grill menu, together with its innovative range of traditional cask ales and superior quality wines. Ideally located just off the A19 near Silverink/Cobalt, The Pavilion is a modern, cosmopolitan venue and is the perfect location to share great food with friends and family.

The grill rings the changes with our favourites and our guest steak and burger board. Char-grilled on our Spanish josper grill, one of few in use in the north east, giving a unique flavour to our dishes. All the classics are here, from the North Sea Haddock to Steak, there really is something for everyone. 

A leading light in the North East food scene for casual dining in a relaxed, contemporary setting, catering to all tastes. Our wine list is mightily impressive and sensitively priced, and perfectly compliments our food menu. 

Don't forget... Sunday wouldn't be Sunday without a traditional Great British Roast! Pop along and enjoy our British Meats and locally grown vegetables.
