Not sure if this is a weekday night thing only but fill out your dinner requests from forms on the tables and take it to the bar. How strange !! Never been in a pub or restaurant or hotel where you have to do this. And, the food wasn't up to much either. Really fatty sirloin steak, soggy tasteless chips,... More

I'm being lazy here and cutting and pasting my review from last year with a few modifications. One of the reasons for choosing the Wellington was it's proximity to Newhaven ferry port, just 10 minutes drive. The choice of 10 hand pulled beers plus the price attracted me as well, I must admit. Nice welcome from the helpful barmaid. Entrance... More

Refreshingly, this is one of the few pubs in Seaford that is focussed on giving its customers what they want rather than having a take it or leave it attitude. The staff are polite and are focussed on their work. The place is well maintained, clean, comfortable and welcoming with good fayre on offer at a fair price. Different days... More

We stayed at the Wellington for 4 nights in September. The hotel is 3 minutes from the town and the beach. The room was lovely, everything was there that was needed to be comfortable. The welcome from staff and their friendly attitude throughout the stay was great. The pub itself is very popular and busy every night of the week.... More

Like others my wife found the bed a little "lumpy" but it was OK for a couple of nights, there is some road noise in the morning as most of the rooms look out over a road that is quite busy, but we've been in much worse. The pub gets very busy, it seems to be a popular place to... More

Lovely room. Beautiful view. However the mattress was very uncomfortable, which was the only thing that let the stay down. Given this we would come back, and hope the mattress situation changes. Read less Likes: Good TV channels. Lovely hot shower with lots of complimentary shower gels etc. A wonderful breakfast and great attentive staff. Dislikes: Bedding was poor. Pillows... More

Great pub with character and atmosphere and a good range of beers - a mere stones throw from the beach. Excellent service from friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable and spacious rooms and superb breakfasts!

This is a thriving local community pub a couple of minutes walk from the seafront. We stayed in Room 104, which is facing the sea. This room is directly above the main bar, so is not for you if you are early to bed. All the other rooms also face the front of the hotel but open out onto the... More

Went for a beer and wanted to pay with Northern Irish/English Pound, which is the same then English Pound. But the waitress, very unfriendly, refused to take them! Like it is not the same Country!!!! Because Irland (the Country) has Euro as Currency.
