Review of Wellington by Donald Saunders on August 23rd, 2006
If only all pubs could be like this! Great beers (5 on handpump when I visited, and they'd just had an annual beer festival featuring 15 real ales!), as well as excellent food - unpretentious and great value, given the quality on offer. Quite rightly Herefordshire Pub of the Year 2006, amongst a clutch of other awards I saw hanging on the walls!
