    Food was absolutely delicious but we were expecting the valentines menu as it was advertised on the website but when we were about to order we were told that that valentines menu was only available from the 15th Feb… Don’t get me wrong, the dinner menu is pretty good… but we were hoping to have something else.

    First time for myself and friends last night at The Wellington. One of the party is disabled usually in a wheelchair but lack of parking ment we had to leave our car and walk very slowly to the pub. We then stood at the bar several minutes whilst the barman was serving regulars again very distressed and told we could sit where ever we wanted. There was a disabled toilet so we sat close to that. Our booked time was 5.30. We sat for 15-20 minutes before realising you go to the bar to order your food. So it was at least 6.10 maybe later the food arrived. No complaints there food very hot and very tasty. Not a huge choice of food so most of us went fish n chips or scampi but we enjoyed our food. Probably however I doubt if we will return. No parking and no liaison with staff made it difficult and stressful so food good but for us that wasn’t enough to encourage us back sorry.

    Family Meal - Boxing Day Every Boxing Day we meet up with family and try to find some where equally distanced from each other. This year we chose Borehamwood / Elstree and went for the Wellington. We were a table of 9 and had a great time. We sat in the front of the pub and had we known about the garden room we’d probably sat there for no other reason that it would have been more private. We went with a combination of the items from the lunch and main menu which there was no issue with. All the food was excellent and good sized portions. The pub doesn’t normally do table service but as they weren’t that busy and we were a big party they did for us. A special shout out to the young man in glasses (sorry we didn’t get his name) who was very attentive. All in all a great afternoon in a nice local pub which serves excellent food and provides great service. Would highly recommend.

    Staff were overwhelmed, it wasn't their fault, but £££ for Christmas lunch which took forever to arrive, and was only...OK... I genuinely think the staff did their best but the management completely let them down. In any case, I did £300 hard earned for Christmas lunch, and it just was very disappointing
    Wellington - 4 Theobald StreetResponded on 8 January 2024
    I am sorry if you felt that our food delivery timings were too slow. Our Christmas Day ethos is that we want all guests to relax and enjoy a leisurely lunch without rushing you out, to turn the tables for a second sitting. As such, the service of food is made a little slower than normal to maximise the experience and allow ‘breathing space’ between courses. Having read your ‘hour between courses’ comment surprised me greatly, therefore I reviewed our CCTV for your table. The food service timings varied somewhat from those indicated by you.

    Really enjoyed our dinner. The poor lady serving was on her own doing bar and food service. She was lovely and worked so hard but impossible to do everything. Mulled wine was a bit cold & Eton Mess had run out - it was only 7.45 when we asked for it.

    This was a first visit for some of our group, the food was great, with the chicken and ham pie receiving several compliments. The service was excellent, as always, the staff are friendly and helpful. The only slight negative, they were showing a boxing match in the dining area in the evening, but they also had a singer and it became a bit noisy.

    Eating at 7:30, service was nice and the kitchen staff were really accommodating and even checked our orders were correct. Table behind us were screaming at each other and swearing while we were trying to eat, but it’s a pub so it is what it is. 8pm, as our food arrived, a DJ started and was so loud, I literally cannot understand how to explain it. Even the Bee-Gees would have asked for their own song to be turned down. It was madness. I literally couldn’t hear my friends across the table. It felt I had ordered a burger and salad in a nightclub. We left straight away and went to another pub for more food and drinks.

    Amazing roast dinner. Bar staff very friendly. Had 2 cocktails for £11 but instead of serving both at the same time the bar man made me one so then once I had finished my first one he would make me a fresh one so it didn't melt.

    Very good in every way. Staff exceptionally helpful and friendly. Food exceptional too. The only negative was that one diner on another table had a dog that barked constantly. Other dogs in Wellington at the time were perfectly behaved. The owner did take it out once or twice but it did make it difficult to talk. Otherwise I can honestly it was overall outstanding and would definitely recommend it.

    Had a great meal and really good atmosphere. My only comment is that it wasn't explained that the kitchen closed at a certain point and I only found this out when I tried to order dessert. I wasn't able to answer had to go the bar and order the one dessert that was on offer.
