We do not list all table availability at weekends on OpenTable, so if you cannot find your preferred time available please contact us by phone as we may still have tables free.

The philosophy at the Inn has always been based on quality and good, honest local produce, coupled with a stylish, stripped back atmosphere and attention to detail from a team with vision and passion led by David and Gillian Pinchbeck.

The menu has a strong, seasonal influence, and reflects the best in contemporary British cuisine whilst drawing inspiration from classic dishes around the world. The winter menu includes sautéed chicken livers with black pudding potato cake, buttered spinach, beetroot & bacon crisp, as well as slow cooked Herefordshire lamb shoulder with braised red cabbage, hot pot hash brown, glazed parsnips, and rich lamb cooking liquor. As for the wine list, it's an eclectic collection of well-priced, interesting finds, which hint at the owners’ personal enjoyment of a great bottle.

                                                              Love eating here. There is a lovely relaxed atmosphere with friendly staff. I am disabled and I find a lot of restaurant seating is very uncomfortable however the seating here is comfortable which makes for a better dining experience. The food is always lovely with very interesting menu choices ; it’s hard to chose what to have sometimes ! I particularly liked the cavolo nero starter and my husband highly recommends the brioche bread and butter pudding. Always excellent every time

                                                              Have been here a few times before, and always seem to come back here for special occasion meals. An interesting menu with something for everyone. Everything is cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. Excellent staff who are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. One thing I personally like is the seating in the dining room is very comfortable. This is important when you are disabled as I am. Shall definitely be visiting again.

Hopefully this was just a one off, as previous visits had been better.

                                                              Excellent food. The Spring lamb was magnificent! The best ever, so melt in the mouth tender we have never had better. It was a busy night when we went but the service was good. The only gripe I did have was no one offered to take our coats when we arrived. A little thing but it does make you feel welcome.

Would welcome more variety with vegetarian main courses. The tagine is an addition but the other dish has been on the menu for several months now and is not up to normal standards, quite boring, unfortunately.

                                                              You were obviously very busy on Saturday night and I believe from what the waitress said everyone appeared to arrive together so service was very slow. We had to wait about an hour for our main course after finishing our starter. However the food was good and worth waiting for!

                                                              I'd had high expectations but was a little disappointed. No one offered to take our coats so they stayed on the back of our chairs. The restaurant is in a lovely old building but you wouldn't know it from the interior as you could be anywhere. The scallops were too soft so had little texture. My main of fish was tasty though. There was very little choice of wine by the glass which is both disappointing and a little alarming as its rural location means that everyone has to come by car. I wouldn't return as I think other restaurants in the area offer a better experience for the money.

                                                              A first time visit and the food and drinks were exceptionally good. Well above the normal “gastro pub” more of a “fine dining” standard. You rarely see cheese soufflé on a menu and there’s a reason for that. It’s incredibly difficult and time consuming to make especially in a commercial kitchen. I ordered it and it was superb. Accompanied as it was with fig and rosemary, it was delicious. Followed by duck which was succulent and full of flavour. Could of done with a little more carrot purée but otherwise a fabulous dish. Finished off with a trio of mini desserts which were also all wonderful. Accompanied by amazing mocktails. Drinks are often forgotten in reviews but these are definitely worth a mention. Great flavour combinations, beautifully presented. The service was good, unobtrusive but there when needed, but we did have to enquire about the soup and risotto of the day flavours which should have been advised at the outset. Overall, a delicious and pleasurable dinner and we look forward to a return visit.

                                                              This restaurant has always been the go to place to eat if you live in Malvern. There is only one other restaurant that equalled the quality of their food. Some dear friends ate at Welland for an Anniversary dinner 3 or 4 weeks ago and said how disappointed they were. I would have to echo their sentiment. The Sunday lunch yesterday, was not up to their usual standard. Hopefully this is only temporary...head chef left?

                                                              Super service and excellent food, good value for the money. We found the ambience very good, slightly perturbed by a loud woman on the next table, it’s amazing that these thoughtless people are around but doesn’t take anything away from the restaurant. With luck when you go she won’t be there! Well worth a visit.

It was everything it should be and not expensive. Many thanks as McArther said, I will return.

                                                              We had a most enjoyable evening at the Inn at Welland. Unfortunately it was marred by a very noisy party which made it difficult for us to hear what our friends were saying. The waiting staff were kept extremely busy and were excellent.

                                                              The Inn came recommended by a friend - although a fair distance (30 miles) away from our home we decided to venture further for supper. We absolutely loved it - great interior, not over precious, high quality food cooked really well. Casual but smart. Service was excellent despite being busy. Loved the soup and liquorice home made ice cream - also liked the wine recommendations with some of the courses. Have already told our neighbours about it and we’re planning to revisit.
