Delicious fresh food, amazing wines and bedrooms to die for, all enhanced by a marriage of medieval architecture and contemporary design.

The Wellington inn situated in Welwyn village (commonly known as ‘the Welly’), re-opened on May 24th  2010 after a major refurbishment with a new restaurant layout, a bigger and better terrace on which to enjoy long warm evenings, an even better open fire and of course six unique and gorgeous bedrooms.


The kitchen team, led by Head Chef John Beardsworth, brings you fresh, delicious and innovative food. Enjoy dishes from our clipboard menu full of pub favourites cooked with a Wellington twist or for the more adventurous, a special from our monthly or daily changing specials blackboards which John and the team have lovingly created for you. The setting is rustic and the service without pretension or formality but of the highest standards.

…And so rode to Welling [now Welwyn], where we supped well, and had two beds… And still remember it that of all the nights that ever I slept in my life I never did pass a night with more epicurism of sleep… I never had so much content in all my life, and so my wife says it was with her.” Samuel Pepys, February 1660
