Me and my partner had a lovely meal. Friendly, kind & helpful staff. Great food, portion sizes and quality of flavour unmatchable. Would defiantly go again and recommend you do too.
Seven of us have just been for lunch at The Welby Arms and it was excellent in all respects: easy to book, greeted with a warm welcome, delicious food, good service and reasonably priced too. We'll most certainly be returning - thank you.
So glad it's reopened.... Dinner was delicious and very reasonably priced. It was simple cooking but very well done. My soy salmon and pak choi dish was one of the tastiest meals out I've had in ages
Popped in the off chance for some lunch, as it just reopened. Lovely looking pub, staff were really helpful and friendly. We had a burger and fish and chips, which were very tasty and plenty of it. Really good selection of drinks, will definitely be back again, thank you.
Beautiful food!! Such a lovely place to spend any occasion , Thank you!!
Great atmosphere, great team, great food, great selection of beers… What’s not to like. When here with a group of friends last night and it was a brilliant evening, good selection of food for everyone and really lovely atmosphere.
