The Old Ash Dene - Generous George
Ranked #10 of 61 Restaurants in Ashington
Price range: US$ 6 - US$ 17
Description: The Old Ash Dene in Ashington is a family-friendly pub with a big heart! A great atmosphere, smiley staff, delicious food, and good beer make us the kind of pub you want to spend time in. And when it’s nice, you can sit out on the patio and chill. Choose from a big selection of drinks at the bar. We have everyday draught beers, real ales, and party favourites like prosecco and cocktails. Plus soft drinks and coffee. When you order a main meal off the food menu, we pop a penny in the charity chest. Food is served every day until late. Have a bit of what you fancy and feel good with every mouthful.

Popped into The Old Ash Dene for lunch with my daughter and her baby. The place was fairly busy we were shown to a table near the pizza bar. We ordered from the menu which is full of fried food, and we waited and waited until our order came. My order was for chicken breast with bbcue sauce french fries and sweet potato chips coleslaw and corn on the cob. The french fries were undercooked the sweetpotato fries were overcooked the coleslaw looked very sad and the corn on the cob was so cold the butter didn't melt. My daughters chicken gougons looked more than twice fried. Saw a waiter putting his fingers on a pizza that had been standing under a heat lamp for at least 20 minutes to see if it was warm. Hope his hands were clean!!!!

Visited for a family meal on a recent visit home. Food was ok atmosphere was typical of a pub chain .
You get what you would expect of a pub chain pub.

Visited today for a Sunday lunch ,we ordered beef and turkey ,The beef was over cooked and couldn’t chew it, turkey was dry!! Carrots were burnt , Yorkshire pudding was greasy and burnt!! Only thing on plate that was cooked correctly was the frozen roast potatoes. Paid nearly 10pound for 3 frozen roast potatoes and some peas as left the rest of food!! Awful experience , food has declined massively over past year!

Thank you for ruining Mother Day. Your food was 100% WORSE than last year and we will not be going back.
If you think powdery mash potato and half cooked frozen veg is acceptable then you need to get trained kitchen staff. also luke warm chips and a pile of BBQ pulled pork that just looked like someone had puked on the plate with very little BBQ sauce.
As for the Pedigree Pint that tasted as if it had been watered down.
We did not even stop for a dessert .
Maybe it is time for you to be inspected
