Always a pretty relaxed and comfortable feel about this pub. Service is usually good but, unfortunately, this time our complimentary bread arrived after our main course. I decided to have chicken stroganoff which was not entirely as I would have liked. This dish, to my...More

It's puzzling that the service and food in McMullens chain pubs varies so much. I had lunch with my wife and another couple and was dismayed that the service was so slow and the staff so disengaged with the customers. The food's OK but nothing...More

Description
Enjoy Seriously Relaxed Dining in Welwyn in this great pub that's been part of the McMullen family since 1936.

Dine alfresco when the sun favours or by the fire when it doesn't, share moments in the private dining area or relax in this genteel rural town retreat.

We serve daily changing seasonal specials, hand selected and personally tested (a tough day that was!) Fine wines, craft real ales, ethical coffee and Sunday roasts a speciality!

The team look forward to seeing you soon.
