Perfect location for Christmas dinner. Attentive decor already pre-arranged for our table and the meals that followed were stunning. Staff are fantastic and friendly. Can't fault anything on this visit. This was just one of many visits to we've made to The Chieftain and we'll frequent here much more in future too.

I visited here the other month with a friend, and I really had a lovely time. The restaurant had lots of seating and variety on the menu and they were very accommodating when I asked to swap something. I ordered a burger and it was lovely! Staff were fantastic and very friendly, including offering us more sauces if required. I... More

I have been to Welwyn a few times now. Most places here are nice however Chieftain's aesthetic is great, very modern and open. Also the food and drinks here are great. Would have liked it if there were more options for vegetarian friends of mine, however, I understand that that's a difficult demand in this country. The pulled pork burger... More

This is the place we use most if we want to just pop out for a quick dinner/lunch or when I just can't be bothered to cook. The staff are always friendly and the food is always good and great value. Most meals are on a 2for1 offer costing between £8-12 for 2 meals, can't get fairer than that.

We used to try and go to the Chieftain quite a bit, but as we always had problems getting a table as it was so packed, we hadn't been for a while. My husband had won some vouchers for McMullen's so we decided to book a table and go on Sunday. It was very empty in there - I've never... More

Gathered here for a family birthday and the setting proved to be the ideal choice. Aside from parking issues (car park like many small pubs / restaurants is compromised by lack of space) the location and setting itself is nice and central. Lots of space and a real cosy pub atmosphere welcomes you inside. We had a large number of... More

Visited the Chieftain on a Saturday night. The food was tasty, at a reasonable price and served without delay. The only negative comment is that we found the lighting in the restaurant extremely bright and could do with dimming to create a more informal atmosphere. Plenty of car parking spaces an added bonus.
