Wellington at Welwyn
Ranked #2 of 3 Welwyn B&B and Inns
Reviewed 7 September 2016 via mobile

We are regulars at the Wellington and generally always enjoy the restaurant. The menu is very varied and comprehensive with daily specials. The waiting staff are mostly young people and very friendly and efficient. We went there recently for a late lunch at about 4pm. We had the Wellington burger and fish and chips - very good! They also have an excellent selection of wines available by the glass as well as by the bottle.
The wellington is open all day so you can pop in anytime for just a coffee or pint/glass of wine.
The only take bookings for parties of 6 or more so I suggest you arrive early to get a table a sometimes there's a wait for a table.
No parking problems as they've got a car park plus you ca park in the road free for 90 minutes.

Just went to the Wellington for a lunch. Food was OK, had the meat sharing platter and tempura prawns, but nothing to write home about or recommend. The main problem was that the kitchen was incredibly slow. Our meal took at least 30 minutes to arrive, probably more like 45 minutes. The place was not very busy and all the kitchen had to do was slice (or unwrap) some meat, fry some prawns and dress the plates. A couple ordered the stacked burger and a fish finger bap and that took around 45 minutes to 1 hour. The menu wasn't that inspiring either compared to when we went before.

Just a hint - if you donate a raffle prize to the village festival of a " meal for two" best not to - initially say it is not valid; then say you will only allow two mains; then agree to add starters but no pud
; then charge £12 for a glass of rose ( come on!), then hand out a bill for everything, then take off the food as above BUT leave the service charge against the whole amount. Why would you treat folk like that? Certainly not to build your reputation. Oh and the chef may need some instruction on tempura batter... Thats all folks. Not sure we will be seeing you soon....

Perhaps change is in the air, or there are off days every so often. But after an interval a family return for lunch didn't inspire. It could be the quantity which could be more, or quality e.g. gristle on sirloin slices. The vegetables came in two dishes for our four not as hot as could be? The atmosphere and setting as good as before, agree with others now a bit prices for drinks e.g. £5 for a 125ml red wine. For four persons expect a three figure bill.

Ate here this week as a romantic meal with my wife. We often go here and usually like it. But things have changed - new owner??? new chef????? My wife had the vegetarian special (ratatouille cake with aubergine) and I went for the chickpea and spinach curry - neither really impressed and my wife's was very salty. What really let it down was the poor slow service, normally it's very good with a great front of house, but not this time. We were hoping to order a desert, but we weren't served so I just asked for the bill after being left unattended for so long.
