I confess I have frequented the Pavilion Cantonese Restaurant Consett long enough to know Mr Kim, the previous owner and Michelle the current owner. ThereforeI may be a hugely biased proponent of the restaurant. The food and environment this place provides are fabulous. At the entrance, you are greeted with the smell of lilies and staff who offer to take your coats. Each table divider is decorated with Chinese imagery on the frosted glass. Every table has a white tablecloth over it. All staff including Mr Kim make the point to ask if we are enjoying our meal.
The entrance is wheelchair-accessible, additionally, there is just room to squeeze a wheelchair through to your seat. When there is a guide dog or wheelchair one seat is taken away to create room for both individuals. Whilst there is no braille menu the helpfulness of the staff makes up for it.
In my opinion, the carpet and decor of the Pavilion Cantonese Restaurant Consett are dementia friendly because their carpets are all one colour. This may help those with dementia as some in the past have expressed anxiety because they could not work out what they were seeing exactly. This is because of the patterning and their capability to perceive what the pattern is on the floor. For example, some have seen black and white flooring as a floor with a lot of dangerous holes that could fall down. The lighting may be poor for you. They will add lighting if it is needed.
