Ate here the night before Mother's day so no specials. Food was good but the service needs improvement. Lots of young girls serving who are sweet but need some leadership. Had to wait 10 minutes for me to ask if they would like to offer us a drink and all the waitresses were just standing around. Someone needs to be...

As always a little late in posting - busy life gets in the way! Our daughters bought us a stay here on the 25th February. A warm welcome was received by Sam and we were shown to our room - a very nice room it was. We then came downstairs for a few drinks. Very polite and attentive staff. Ended...

Arrived for an early birthday dinner celebration with three generations of our family. Left THREE hours later having struggled to get two courses and three rounds of drinks, despite constant chasing!! Worst bit is that they weren't even really busy. Lovely, clueless, amateur, inept staff and management hiding under a thin veneer of professionalism and a kitchen running on Jamaican...

Sadly not a pleasant experience. Having checked the website for the opening time for breakfast we duly arrived at 07:05 to be greeted with we don't serve breakfast to non residents until 08:00. There was no mention of this on the website. When we said we would go elsewhere we were told that they could possibly serve as the chef...

The Wellington Inn was a lovely experience, the relaxing atmosphere adding to a great night. The food was excellent, well presented and a credit to the Wellington. The portions are quite substantial which is nothing but impressive as it makes value for money. The head chef Ryan even came out to check things were ok, a lovely gesture and rarely...

Great place with fantastic staff who couldn't do enough for us. The food was fantastic, we had lunch on the day of arrival and breakfast on the day of departure. The room was really quirky! An incredibly comfortable bed and bedding. We both slept very well. We would absolutely visit again if we were in the area. Highly recommend this...

Just had the worst Sunday lunch I think I have ever been served! We waited 1 and a quarter hours for our steak and roast beef we ordered. The steak was incinerated, and they appeared with the roast meals for the children with an "sorry there aren't any Yorkshire puddings!". Unbelievable! The bernaise sauce with the steak was a dribble...

Had a few drinks before going on to a restaurant and was very impressed. Staff welcoming and friendly, brought drinks to your table. Nicely fitted out and good atmosphere. Will return and try eating here.

A special family dinner was tainted by the most appalling service. Despite it being a Tuesday, this comfortable gastro pub was full. However with only two waiting staff, the service was laborious and much delayed. The meze plate was boring and decorated with unnecessarily large pyramids of butter that looked dangerously like pieces of cheese, as one of our party...

4 of us booked for lunch on 20 January at 1. It was 1.30 before our orders were taken and starters arrived at 2 after being assured three times that they were being plated up.These were adequate prawn tempura. The one member of staff who was helpful said they would put through the main course order there and then but...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Six bedrooms, each one slightly different, complement the Wellington's award-winning food and service. In keeping with the spirit of a building dating from 1352, we have kept and restored as many of the original features as possible, so you will encounter oak beams, cedar pine floors as well as antique furniture throughout the building. Some rooms even have an open fireplace or a four-poster bed... Each room has also been updated to offer you all the luxuries of contemporary living with plate glass, crisp bed linen and feather-down duvet on hand-sprung mattresses, monsoon showers or deep free-standing slipper baths, free WiFi, flat screen TV and a personal iPod dock/iPhone charger in your room. ... more   less

“A fascinating place to stay. The whole building was a tasteful combination of 21st Century luxury and 600 years of history.”
