Congratulations to our NEW Head Chef - Matt
Matts new exciting menu is coming live next Friday 27th August
We are so very excited to launch Matts new menu next week so get your table booked now and come join us.
Matt was first trained in France in a private chateau in the dordogne. He came back to the UK wanting a new environment. Worked his way up through rosetted and high end restaurants in hertfordshire. Newly promoted from sous chef here with us at The Wellington, he wants to go with a new direction with a more upmarket style of street food, mixed with a few classics and fresh, vibrant dishes.

Go on treat yourself
Sunday Late Lunch – Delicious food (had the roast which is excellent value too, but hard to choose with all other food envy walking by to other tables), great service from Jeffrey who was very helpful and had his attention timed perfectly, very good wine although a lot of Australian. A lovely late lunch evening. Good Sunday PM guitarist too to add to the atmosphere. No wonder we keep coming back!
A powerful marriage of old and new
The Wellington at Welwyn (commonly known as ‘The Welly’) offers a powerful marriage of old and new, tradition and contemporary, proper and fresh. This is evident in the architecture, the food, the drink and the service. The setting is rustic & the service without pretension and of the highest standard.
Enjoy alfresco dining on our rustic and charming sun terrace in our riverside garden, with beautiful views over Welwyn village and St Mary’s Church grounds. Then retire inside in the evening to enjoy a real open fire, in our warm and welcoming candle lit restaurant.

Steeped in History
Once a longer building, The Wellington is assembled from three older buildings. To the North was the Boars Head, a 14th century Beer House. To the South The Swan a 13th Century Beer House and, perhaps, from the 11th Century, a Medieval Hall House. The Swan was licensed and we have a list of all the licensees since 1325!
Guests staying in Room 3 sleep under 11th century oak timbers and the cobbled access to the (now demolished) stables are still below the wooden floors in the centre of the restaurant, as are the flints of the Roman Road below the bar which led to a Mimram river ford, at the bottom of the Wellington’s gardens.
