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

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.

The food here were some of the best meals we had in Boscastle. This is a large hotel with many tables. Probably because it was so big and not very full it lacked some atmosphere but great food.

Staying in the area we walked in with our dog for an evening meal. Warm welcome in pleasant informal surroundings. Food exceeded expectations by some distance, well presented, nicely cooked and friendly service. Being a Wednesday they have the Boscastle Buskers in...a group of locals who sing and poetry in a variety of styles. Smashing folk who made us feel... More

We came here mostly because of the images of the flood in which water could be seen rushing through the entrance. We were somewhat disappointed by the atmosphere, and also by the prices of the menu. Local ales on offer and served in decent condition.
