Booked a table here for Sunday lunch (yesterday) however had no record of our booking on arrival. Fortunately we were accommodated and had the roast lamb, which came with roast and new potatoes, yorkshire pudding, fresh carrots, cabbage and cauliflower cheese. Roast potatoes were a little overcooked and dried out however everything else was very good. Atmosphere very nice, would... More

Very nice roast dinner and good value. Good range of Beer and friendly staff. Have since gone back and enjoyed a lunch in the week. Just a pity about the Chef... More

Unfortunately both dishes were very disappointing. Chicken very dry and sauce looked and tasted like dishwater. The onions on the mash were inedible, looked like they... More

Having previously booked elsewhere for Mother's Day and being let down at the very last minute by being told we didn't have a reservation I was panicking about finding somewhere for 11 people to have lunch. I really didn't have to worry! Rang the Wellesley arms and they were extremely sympathetic to our plight and did their absolute best to... More

This is a really nice pub. Friendly staff and in a warm pleasant atmosphere. The food was delicious. I'd recommend the steak and ale pie! I'd suggest a call before going as it seems a busy place.
