My wife and I regularly go to the restaurant for our Sunday lunch, it is a buffet system and the meat is always first class. It can be very busy at times so a prior booking is advised.

We recently had a two night stay at The Wellwood, care of Groupon. We received a nice warm welcome and we were shown to our room, which was spacious and spotlessly clean. The first night included dinner although we chose to upgrade to the a la carte. The food was delicious, so good in fact that we cancelled a booking... More

Went in on a wednesday which was advertised as steak night @ 2 for £25 but opted for food from the menu, i must say the food was fabulous with excellent service, nothing was too much trouble. Also the staff are up for a bit of banter which is a bonus. If you have a starter i recommend the garlic... More

the Wellwood is an eating pub with a separate restaurant or bar meals all are good, the carvery on a Sunday is very popular it runs from mid day until 7 at night. The menu on the other days is good with good choice the wine is reasonably priced for a restaurant.

I stayed here one night with my Mum as a trip for our birthdays. We got a Groupon which included an evening meal and breakfast. The room was lovely and clean, the food was delicious and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back! Thank you for a lovely stay!

The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was large and warm and clean. All really good so far. There was a continuous noise in the room which we were told was from the kitchen extractor fan but that it would go off at 9pm which it did (though woke us up at 7.30am on the Sunday). Okay, we...

It's the 6th time we've been here for Sunday lunch and something was amiss. Each time we've been we've been happy with the service (no issues this time), the atmosphere (a little quieter) and the food - ah, that's where it dropped down a little. The Sunday menu has 2 options - £7.50 tow meats, £8.50 three meats. My partner... More
