The staff are always welcoming and friendly. I usually have the 2-1 meals which are very good value for money.As a vegetarian there is always a two or three options to choose from. The pub is clean and well maintained with excellent decor. A lovely place to eat at.

Come here a lot, nice staff and great food. There's also darts and colouring for kids with is also great. The food is pretty cheap (certain main meals) but the drinks make up for the price. There's a couple of fireplaces next to sofas which I always go to when I go into the restaurant. They have a "king sized... More

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.
