We wanted somewhere to have an evening meal that was dog friendly and we were very impressed. The history of this old hotel was proudly displayed which made the experience very interesting. The staff were warm and friendly, and the service was very efficient. An extensive menu made choosing difficult but we were not disappointed. We would recommend the Crab... More

Whilst I am happy to compliment the place on the quality of food which was matched by the friendly bar staff and clean, comfortable surroundings, it was disappointing to find the quiz starting as early as 8 when most people were still eating food. We paid to take part but gave up early because our main courses had arrived and... More

We will nevertheless look at the start time, particularly during the summer. As for the questions, Boscastle residents and Wellington guests are of... More

They have just changed the way they use the dining areas in the Hotel. Despite this the service and food were both excellent. The lunch we had was not 'fine dining' but exceptionally good for hotel/pub food. The portion size on the main courses was very large and everything was beautifully cooked. The selection of vegetables with the roast beef... More

A cold and wet day saw us seeking sanctuary here. We were met with a warm welcome and were able to take our dog in. The barman immediately came over to put more wood on the fire which was lovely. We noticed that there was a quiz that evening and we were able to reserve a table (we were staying... More

Went here on New Years Eve for the taster menu. The staff were really professional and friendly but it was the food that stole the night! Absolutely fantastic - 7 courses for £65 and wine with each course for an additional £35. we were amazed at the variety and exquisite taste of each dish. Will be booking again next year

We ate here a couple of times during our stay in Boscastle and the food was excellent. Even though it is out of season the choice was good and well presented. The staff were always helpful and friendly, we will definitely return sometime soon.

This is a great place to either eat or just have a drink. The bar manager was very attentive- always willing to explain and help. Food in the bar is excellent with a good range of both pub meals and something a little different. Food is reasonably priced. Well worth a visit.

We stayed in Boscastle a couple of weeks ago and ate in the bar at the Wellington hotel twice. The food and staff were lovely and even though it is out of season the choice was good. We would definitely recommend this place to eat.
