Description
Enjoy Seriously Relaxed Dining in Welwyn in this great pub that's been part of the McMullen family since 1936. Dine alfresco when the sun favours or by the fire when it doesn't, share moments in the private dining area or relax in this genteel rural town retreat. We serve daily changing seasonal specials, hand selected and personally tested (a tough day that was!) Fine wines, craft real ales, ethical coffee and Sunday roasts a speciality! The team look forward to seeing you soon. James Manager
