Friendly staff and delicious food and cocktails. Would definitely go again.
Brilliant yet again highly recommended staff & food brilliant 10/10
excellent meal, nice selection of carvery vegetables, all meats were lovely
Really nice and good value meals we will be back soon
We had booked a table as a birthday treat for our 89 year old neighbour as it had been recommended.We chose to have the carvery.The food was to our liking with a good variety of choice,certainly good value.We were given a table right opposite the door which proved a disappointment. Admittedly it was a cold night so you could feel it more because of where we were seated but every time someone came in or went out it made it worse. with a bitterly cold draught We were soon cold and uncomfortable plus our meals which were hot when we got them soon went cold..Unfortunately no one approached us during our meal, as is customary in many places, to ask if everything was OK and neither did we see staff free to ask to be moved,they were always serving someone. We would have stayed for dessert and more drinks had we been warmer but we left immediately after our main meal due to being so cold.It would have been helpful if they had asked us if we had been before,(we hadn't), so that they could explain the procedure for ordering food ie at the bar or table but they didn't and we had to ask as neither were there any notices to explain it that we could see. I think we would all be happy to go there again but we will ring to book rather than making it on line so we can be sure we don't get given the same table.
Visited here after a personal recommendation. Far superior to the big name chains - whilst remaining competively priced. Staff were friendly and it was a bar service rather than at the table, which saved a wait at the end. The pub could do with a bit of redecoration but wasn't in a bad state. The food was of good quality, and plenty of choice (three meats, + Veg option, potatoes 4 ways, all the typical veg). Seemed to be no restrictions on the Yorkies, but 1 was plenty for me, and crispy. Only one flavour of gravy, but tasty and complementary to the meal, whichever meat you chose. Accidentally added a spoon of horseradish to my plate thinking it was bread sauce! However, it was the best horseradish I ever tasted. Whilst it had heat it did not kill the flavour of the meat which I often find with Colemans or other carveries. It is a carvery, not posh-nosh, but it's damn fine carvery fare!
Food arrived within a good time but was just dumped in front of us and the waitress whizzed away, leaving us to go off in search of condiments such as mustard and vinegar. It was a busy Monday night but it takes less than a minute to ask diners if they need anything else to go with their meal. After our main meal, my partner went to the bar to Oder dessert and was gone ages. I popped to the loo, so took my phone and purse, leaving my bag on the chair to indicate I hadn’t left. When I came back, my half full drink and the meat I had wrapped up to take home for the dog had been cleared away. My partner came back and explained he had been ignored at the bar whilst several people came up apparently just to chat to the bar staff. When he pointed out he had been waiting, one staff was very rude to him. On the plus side, the food was excellent. My steak was more rare than the medium rare I had asked for, but was delicious all the same. Fantastic value for money too!
For carvery I give full marks EVERY TIME but Monday we decided to try something off the deals menu. We had the heavily discounted mixed grill but found the chips were too dry without sauce, the gammon was very salty and the sausage lacked flavour. Neither of us tried the black pudding but meat wise that was nicely done. There was plenty on the plate and if you added sauces, salt, pepper then it will vastly alter the taste but I prefer to have my food plain and tasty. I can’t recommend the carvery enough and will stick to that happily. Staff are lovely so are cleanliness levels, drink options and atmosphere. We love this place just not that 1 meal this time. Please note we are always too full for pudding.
Every time we go there is always kids being allowed to run about shouting and basically being a nuisance tonight they were a nightmare. You need an adults only time slot or adults only area When we just want a quiet meal to talk to friends it is out of order these parents letting their children behave like this We have had to move tables on more than one occasion to try to get away from them. apart from the noisy kids the food is always excellent
This was our first time at The New Wellington and it certainly won’t be our last... very welcoming people, food was very tasty and well worth the money ( carvery), great mains menu choices too. I would highly recommend a visit.
