we visit the Wellington on a regular basis, Having given it a great review before it is such a shame that the flag ship pub of bath ales feel it is ok to serve their flagship ale cloudy and with sediment.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights this weekend to go to the cricket in Bristol. The ground is about 1 mile away so an easy stroll. The hotel itself is very nice, our room, number 3, was on the corner of the building, large and very comfortable with a fabulous bathroom. I was quite worried about the...

Visited The Welly with my friend earlier this month and I was not disappointed. The food was delicious (not cheap but good quality). My friend wasn't a starter as a main and they were able to make her up a larger portion so all the food is cooked order. It's a lovely atmosphere, plenty of seating and a nice outdoor...

Yeah, ok, the wifi is 'unpredictable' but it's a great place to stay in in around Bristol. The flat iron steak and chips are sublime. Interesting menu and reasonable prices. Ground coffee and cafetière in room. A real plus. Stay here often so that says something.

Stayed here on business. Good value compared to usual Bristol prices. Didn't sample the food, but a good selection of real ale is a speciality. Room comfortable, clean. Great shower, much more spacious than usual. Will make it my regular for Bristol overnights in future.

An impromptu trip to Bristol ended in an evening meal at this pub. What a find! Most recommended!! An absolute delight! The best steak you will ever experience! Will definitely return to try the other offerings on the menu! Polite and attentive staff.

Great room. First time I've been offered a cafe presse with ground coffee in the room. Large room, very comfortable bed. Huge bathroom with bath and large shower stall. Not for those who can't climb stairs. Narrow winding stairs, no lift that I knew about. Hotel is in a renovated pub -- good restaurant and beer. Service could be better...

Been here a few times for drinks and it's a nice pub with nice decor and friendly atmosphere. We recently came for a Sunday roast and to be honest I was a little disappointed. The lamb was overlooked and the quantity was pretty poor. The gravy was like water and even after asking for an additional jug there still wasn't...

Met some friends here last night, more by accident than anything else! The pub was nice, open, bright, well decorated. They had an excellent selection of beers which made my partner very happy, he is a big fan of the bath ales! He was even more excited to discover he could purchase a keg from there, think he will be...
