A large group of us of all ages attended here for Sunday lunch. The staff are very friendly and can't do enough to help. The food is lovely with a wide choice of meats and unlimited vegetables and gravy. Well worth the price. Would recommend and will go back.

If your looking for a good home cooked Sunday lunch, then the Welfare is hard to beat. Excellent food and service provided. The staff are always very friendly and welcoming, especially with young children. Very generous portions provided and good value for money. Would recommend booking in advance. Always a pleasurable experience.

After our recent visit to a Toby Carvery in Whitchurch that failed to please on many levels, it was wonderful to find out that good food and excellent service is available on our very doorstep.

The dining room was packed, usually a good sign and reinforced by the fact that everyone appeared happy and enjoying their food.

We chatted to some friends and they all gave the food top marks for quality and quantity, delivered to your table, none of that queuing nonsense here...

The menu offered a selection of starters (all at £2.95) including Squid, Salmon fishcakes and Pate as options. The main (costing £7.95)was a choice of roast beef, Lamb or chicken served with roast and new potatoes and seasonal veg (four kinds) and cauliflower cheese as an additional side.

Desserts (£3.50) were the old traditional stand-by selection of most gastropubs steamed sponge puddings with jam or syrup, apple pie or strawberry tart, a gateau, a cake (Chocolate Fudge), profiteroles and Ice cream.

So what makes this place stand out? Well the food is good honest down to earth fayre which suits anyone with good taste. Secondly the staff. They are young, not that experienced, but they really stand out as they provide the kind of service the 'Big chain restaurants' can only dream of providing.

It was lovely to see the place so busy; but then with staff and food this good it's bound to be popular!!

We've been going to the Welfare for a few years now on and off. So what's the attraction? Well quite simply it's always been great value and a top spot for Sunday lunch and it's where the knowledgeable locals eat.

Forget gastropub this is the sort of place you should seek out if you want a good feed, with good quality produce, fresh for the most part and cooked like it was in your granny's day.

The succulent, tender lamb had a taste you've probably forgotten ever existed and the gravy was full of the natural flavour you get from using the pan juices just as every family did when home cooked meals were actually cooked at home.

The bar rates are like any good old valleys town club; prices so 'reasonable' (that means cheap) that it would shock anyone who lives in the 21st Century. Worth a visit? 100 Welsh diners can't be wrong!!
