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... More

We were ignored by the two men at the door as we walked in, they carried on their conversation (they did work there) we were then seated by a waitress. My husbands scrambled eggs and bacon were fine but I had ordered Eggs Royal it came swimming in what... More

Dinner at the wellington, food good, came out very quickly, though the restaurant was not very busy, drinks on the high side re cost, large glass of wine just under £7. Staff helpful. Outside seating available, which is nice during our summer. Parking free for customers, large fee payable if not! Watch out, signs posted.

There isn't many other places to go in the village for coffee so great it is open early. Nice coffee. Ok value. Really nice decor and atmosphere. Would love to come back for food. Menu looks good, albeit quite gastro. Service ok. WiFi a bit variable. Great place to meet for a business meeting.

My wife and I had lunch at the Wellington on Sunday 5th June. We had heard that the kitchen served the best "spare ribs" in the county. I consider myself a good judge as my time living in Colorado had taught me what good ribs really were. We dined on the terrace in bright sunshine were the service was excellent... More

Really wonderful boutique Inn, we were made to feel really welcome and the food was fantastic. The staff were also attentive and friendly. Highly recommended. Make sure you book a table for dinner and the breakfast was really good.

Me and an old work colleague met up here for dinner. At first, they seemed to be shocked to have customers and didn't really seem to know what to do with us, but once we got our table, a lovely waitress took our order and everything was fine. I had the best fish finger bap I have ever had, and... More

Stayed for one night and had room 3. I received a warm greeting and was taken to my very interesting room. It is important to remember this is a really old building and the rooms are in-keeping. There is a very comfy large bed and a fabulous free standing bath. Having no shower was strange but bath was a great... More

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
