The Badger, Newcastle upon Tyne

Oh dear, this pub used to be great, with it wonderful interior and friendly staff. While these 2 components still remain, the food has deteriorated greatly.
They now seem to serve only reheated meals, not freshly cooked, that are nowhere near as good as they were. So disappointing as it used to be great, but over the last few years it had got worse to the point where we will no longer be going back for any meals seeing how there are better eating pubs around.
Bring back the old Badger.

The Twin Farms, Kenton Bank Foot

Probably the best pub food in the area - restaurant quality meals and a fantastic varied menu - cannot fault in any way. Would highly recommend

Derwent Walk Inn, Ebchester

Decided to visit this pub after reading some great reviews online - really wish I hadn't bothered.
We sat in the cold conservatory - which, an hour after asking for the heating to be put on, still had stone cold radiators - to have our meal. The battered cod was well cooked but the accompanying chips were horrid and left uneaten. I had the jambalaya, the rice undercooked and the chicken and prawns tasteless.
The menu has far too many dishes on it, some overpriced. Surely a good chef would have a few dishes cooked well instead of too many cooked badly?
Then theres the service.
The staff walked past us again and again, deliberately not catching anyone's eye. It took 10 mins to get their attention to ask for a glass of water and after 15 mins of waiting for them to clear the table, we gave up and went to them instead.
Needless to say I would not recommend this pub, and have been to many more in the area that are so much better.
Don't waste your time.
