A really nicely decorated pub. Well thought out areas, with large dinning area at the back, and a really good large bar area, not often you get that these days. Food is good with a great selection of local and guest beers and ales. defo worth a viit.

We stayed here for one night as we were going to the Bristol v Wasps rugby match (there's a shuttle bus that picks you up right outside the pub.) Our room was clean and spacious, although it was a bit noisy as it was right at the front, on the road - and it could have done with some blinds or nets to protect our privacy!

We had an evening meal (Easter Sunday) which was limited choice but really well cooked, delicious and very generous portions. The staff were really friendly and helpful.

Breakfast (included in the room rate) was described as 'continental' but it was more than enough - fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereals, croissants, choice of breads for toasting, lots of jams and spreads. You can have a cooked breakfast for an additional £3 but we felt we didn't need it after the huge meal the night before!

There was free parking at the back of the pub.

We've visited this pub on a few occasions, but never stayed overnight before - we were very impressed and we will definitely use The Welly again when we visit Bristol.

Room tip: Ask for a room at the back of the pub as it can be noisy on the road.

The pub has very nice decor inside, very friendly, helpful staff. The beer selection is excellent, good wine and fever tree mixers.
We have just stayed overnight with my octagenarian mother. The rooms were very comfortable and well equipped, the stairs could be a problem for those who are not nimble.
Breakfast had a great selection and again the staff were ultra helpful.
There is a bus stop opposite the pub so getting into Bristol is easy and a day inner ticket was £4.
I would recommend the Wellington, really good.

Choose this hotel as very close to family. Very friendly staff and clean room, nicely decorated and quiet. The bathroom was a good size, I would have preferred a walk in shower as the bath was deep and we did struggle to step in and out also the water did not go down quickly,! So you stood in ankle deep water every time.
The food was very very good no complaints there, breakfast was also good nothing was trouble. The only one thing that let it down was that on our second night stay we asked for the menu just after 7pm to be told the kitchen was shut! Then guest book stated that to food service was till 8 pm! This was disappointing as we only wanted cheese board and chips! We then had to find some where to eat as we was hungry

Room tip: No lifts to the rooms, narrow stairs

I have always thought of the Wellington as an after rugby or football venue morphing into a more cosmopolitan pub in the evening. However, following a visit with my wife on an early friday evening (we arrived around 6pm) and after being shown to a cosy table for two in the restaurant area we sat down expecting the usual pub meal of bland taste and limited menu. This was definitely not the case in this instance. Having ordered the chargrilled lamb for myself and the chicken breast for my wife we prepared ourselves for the meal with a couple of glasses of Merlot and waited to be underwhelmed. However, we were astounded at the quality of food served as it was definitely not the usual pub grub but more befitting of a quality restaurant. The presentation of the meal was superb and the blend of flavours an absolute treat! So much so, I felt I had to ask for Imre the chef to come to the table to congratulate him personally. The restaurant had a good vibe and the service from our waitresses Teyah and Polina excellent. Would recommend getting there early on Friday or Saturday.
