Had a bountiful roast beef dinner, which was delicious and worth every penny; served by the very friendly and hospitable Kirsty. The beer was excellent too.

Really friendly pub. The owners are really nice and spoilt our dog with biscuits. The garden at the back is lovely - lots of tables and chairs all beautifully clean. Only thing missing is food which they are going to do or I would have given it 5 stars.

We visited Ilfracombe to check out the shops on a rainy day. After visiting the shops we popped into the Wellington Arms for a drink. The Cheltenham Festival was on their television and the atmosphere with the locals was brilliant. They had all put together to put a large bet on and the tension was incredible. The price of the...

Popped into the Wellington whilst looking for somewhere to get a Sunday lunch. Unfortunately the landlord had only been there a couple of weeks and he was still "feeling his way around". Having said that he was a very pleasant and polite guy and you got the feeling that once he was in the swing he would do okay.

The Sunday carvery is always scrummy and very popular. We've eaten here other times and always had great food including some very nice steaks. Staff are friendly, helpful and welcoming and happy to cater for different dietary requirements whenever possible. There's a lovely local ale, Tom's Tipple, and a wonderful beer garden for the summer and an open fire inside... More
