Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Typical pub food spot in the middle of town. The food was very good. They have plenty of choice on the festive menu, the Turkey & Ham pie was great. It was mid afternoon, the week before Christmas, so a little quiet, but it was cosy in the snug and we felt looked after.

    This was my first visit to the wellington arms after a Bedford blues rugby match. Why have I not been here before, the pub is set away from the main roads a hidden gem as they say, a good old pub, the staff are very friendly, the atmosphere was great, you felt comfortable going into the pub with all the locals and joining in, with a great selection of beers and ales, will definitely be back back again, thanks for a good friendly welcoming night

    We booked via WhatsApp which worked Perfectly. We were put on a table and were then asked to move , but didn’t mind , these things happen. The owner then kindly moved us again to a better table for our main course - 3 courses - 3 tables .. brilliant . The fire was on and it felt very Sunday, very cosy. The Food was great - the roasts were huge and my ravioli was tasty and cooked really well . Would have preferred a larger gin choice . We will happily return soon.

    We went as a party of 7 including 2 small children for Sunday lunch.
    The food was OK - to my mind standard pub lunch, nothing great or no complaints.
    Took quite a long time to arrive, and the kids were certainly getting a bit bored despite our taking colouring books etc.
    My only real suggestion for the young servers was to be a bit more aware of this, as when we were about to leave and were finding the loo etc. we found Lego and other things to entertain them that we weren't aware of, in the other part of the pub!
    This could have been offered and would certainly have been helpful!
    Otherwise friendly service and nice overall atmosphere.

    Beer is amazing, atmosphere is top notch. Love it here. Tim is a great host and the beers speak for themselves. Just ask for recommendations if you aren’t sure. They’re fab!

    Sadly St Peters is no more....

    It was run by the RED Brewery based a dozen or so miles away as an outlet for its own and other fairly local micro breweries dispensed straight from the cask.
    However running the bar and the brewery was too time consuming and the bar was dropped - sadly followed not long after by the brewery - though a new brewery, Revolution, has taken over its old brewing premises, though sadly not the bar which is now just a run of the mill trendy bar not real ale focussed.

    Not been for some time but was looking for a place to have lunch and was passing by.so went in. The place could do with updating but was clean and a good atmosphere. Staff very friendly. Lovely lunch of the homemade burger. Will call in again.

    Pleasant comfortable spacious environment. Good cocktails reasonably priced. Stylish bar with a cosier more compact space downstairs which looked good for a romantic drink or two. Worth a visit.

    Pub has gone downhill since change of landlords. Very little atmosphere, landlord has not got a great personality. Beer is Ok, but seems something wrong with glasses as beer goes flat very quickly.

    I used to live in area 40 years ago and wanted to revisit my old haunts. This little gem is next to Gordon arms in castle road and we popped in there first to have a hobgoblin! We saw the ad for the entertainment and had never heard of them (from tenesee ) plus support band . For 12 pounds each we were singing and having a brilliant 4 hours of bloody good country style music - I'm not a huge fan but it was so warm and actually bought a vynl and cd by wild ponies. The calendar for coming months is bands of all sorts . Truly recommend a visit it's dark cosy and so very friendly . Thanks to you all will definitely be back for more

    I had a couple of beers at this place, and it was ok I suppose, but no other customers at all. I probably won't go back unless I see signs of life.
