Exquisite lunch. Wonderful food and wine and perfect staff
It’s too late to keep the Tilbury secret and the alternative is to trumpet its good points. Downside is there isn’t a brass instrument capable of carrying the tune that this terrific establishment demand. 11/10 as Mr Marshall would say!😀😀
On first reading the menu appeared to be shall we say eclectic but the dishes our party chose certainly worked and were delicious.
Service was moderate but in fairness there were some large parties.
The staff were very welcoming and accommodating when we asked to be moved to quieter part of the restaurant.
The Tilbury is such a fantastic place. Celebrated my birthday here and had a wonderful time. Food is seriously good, staff very friendly and it’s warm and cosy.
Very goof good and atmosphere. Would go back again.
we had a lovely work Christmas lunch, great food, quick service and nice and quiet
We found this pub to be way overpriced for the quality of food and service that was provided. Although it presented well as far as decor was concerned. The steak was tough and the extremely small peice of monkfish wrapped in undercooked bacon in a bowl was barely warm, the size was more like a starter.
Charging £4.00 for what was basically 2 slices of bread was out of order.
Hadn't visited in a while as had a poor meal a year ago. Returned for Sunday lunch with friends and all was forgiven, and back to being one of our go-to restaurants especially for Sunday roast. Two had the pork which was lovely, one had beef - divine and the other had the cod which was delightful also. The soup was really tasty as was the terrine with prawns and pineapple. An aperitif at the bar is always nice at The Tilbury and they now give out their Christmas surprise envelopes - a great touch. Well done again.
Excellent Sunday lunch, best in the area and we also recently had a delicious mid week evening meal. The food is great quality and well above other local gastro pubs. It’s not pretentious, yet it’s different and the menu is always interesting and great quality. Lovely staff as well. Thank you, we’ll be back!
Another lovely meal from this constistantly good venue. The staff are great, really professional and nothing is too much trouble. Always busy and a lovely buzz. The food, as ever, is delicious. I had the turkey, which was the first of the season and sumptuious. We will return again.
As alaways, great food and excellent service! Great lunch with the family. Good selection on the menu.
We had a lovely family Sunday lunch for a birthday celebration. We were made to feel very welcome and the food was lovely. Special thanks to our waitress, Chloe.
Excellent food and setting with very attentive staff. Couldn't fault it.
We love this restaurant. The food is excellent. The service is usually very attentive and friendly. Management is great and dishes are creative. However, until our last visit we had only enjoyed a weekend lunch rather than an evening meal. This great little restaurant filled up quickly and got too load for a nice conversation. The staff were very busy and our mains took much longer than usual to arrive. Nevertheless, the food was fantastic as always and the staff tried their best to make up for the wait. A great restaurant with some very interesting food.
Another fantastic meal at The Tilbury. Superb clever cooking with great ingredients . Will defiantly be back soon.
Excellent food as always. So glad this is my local.
The Tilbury was a perfect choice for a family Sunday lunch. Generous portions and attentive service. All round good value
creative food menu and excellent tasting dishes.
Enthusiastic, friendly and quality service
We had a fantastic meal and were looked after brilliantly by the restaurant manageress, who was very knowledgeable about the food. Will definitely be back!
Absolutely perfect evening
Tasting menu and accompanying drinks were superb and very good value for money.
For a tasting menu portions were very generous as well as the drinks. It was nice to try different drinks and not just wine. Would never choose a Bloody Mary but it went perfectly with the cauliflower dish.
Staff very friendly and knowledgeable.
Excellent food and service. A highly recommended place to eat!
The wife and I LOVE this place. The food is always amazing, the wine list is great and the staff always male you feel welcome. I wouldn't change a thing about this lovely place
Privileged to have this as our local but we would drive out to eat here. Foood consistently good and interesting, goood advice about wine pairing. New specials regularly so we don’t get bored with the menu.
Menu stretches from good fish and chips and pub basics to elaborate dishes and there is always a good fish main on offer as well as quality beef. Pork, lamb and venison make regular appearances. Reliably good at gluten free options too.
A lovely spot. We had lunch here before having a walk in the local area. The food was interesting and very tasty. Service was great.
Great evening once again and good service from James and his team. Good pub food always at its best.
Great service and lovely food. We also took a doggy bag back with us which they were happy to do. I would glady go there every weekend for lunch!
Love it here! Can always guarantee good food and service. The burger I had was one of the best I've ever tasted! Also nice touches like little experiments from the chef as we waited for our food to arrive, a unique curried popcorn that went down well.
Great food, if a lil pricey. Starters are a lil too haute cuisineish for my tastes, but overall very tasty. I'd go more if portions were more generous.
Service was lovely and it always has a good ambiance.
Im sure we'll be back.
We always find that the special Lunch menu offers excellent value. Although choices are limited, dishes are interesting, very tasty and we have never been disappointed.
Staff were friendly and helpful , food excellent with a good choice and in a comfortable atmosphere .
What more can I say !
The Tilbury is consistently a fabulous place to eat. The staff are welcoming and friendly and there is always a great atmosphere. The set menu is terrific value for money. I love it.
Run out of Sunday roasts but the service was very good
Didn’t mind paying abit extra for the beef on the Sunday roast option but do think 2/3 slices was a bit of a small portion. The men found the lunch rather small.
Delicious meal from starters to desserts. Vegetarian option was outstanding. Staff, as always were lovely, attentive with a good knowledge of the meals. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend for a special meal out!
Hadn't been for a year or so. Same friendly welcome, excellent service and delicious, seasonal food. The venison rump was outstanding.
As always, we had a lovely meal at the Tilbury. So lucky to have this as our local.
Best food and service in Welwyn with a always changing menu!
Lovely food as always but had run out of 2 of meat options for Sunday lunch which was a little disappointing for our guest !
Fantastic Sunday lunch! Great menu options and fantastic service!
Great service throughout the night from the bar to the table, prices are on the high side, dessert wasn't great, but food was very enjoyable, lighting always too bright - no candlelights
