The Duke of Wellington is a busy pub in the heart of Hatfield Peverel. It is just 7 miles outside Chelmsford, and the perfect place for anything from a light lunch to a three course dinner.

Having had a bad experience with this restaurant last Christmas time, we decided to stop off for dinner and give it another go. 2 adults and a 18 month old.

I've eaten in the Duke many times, I used to live a couple of doors away so was a regular. I now work a couple of miles away so sometimes pop up for lunch as they have quite a nice garden. But every time I have been there for lunch in the last year I have disappointed with the service... More

We have had lots of good meals here. OK it is not a gourmet restaurant but it is a good honest local pub with food and drink to go with that.

We used to be regulars at The DoW when the previous publicans were there. In the last six months or so, there seems to be a dropping off of standards. The last time I ate in the pub, with two friends, they "forgot" one of the meals and as it was 9 o'clock and we were all hungry, we ended... More

Having been lots of times for snacks,mid week meals and sunday lunches i have to say standards have deteriorated. Mainly Sunday roasts,of which meat portions are smaller,roast potatoes hard,vegetables..hardly any and yorkshire puddings flat and slightly under cooked.Not sure we will be back,which is a shame because roast dinners especially were very good.

Arrived and welcomed without a smile. Stood at bar for 15 minutes waiting to order a drink, I don't think the manager behind the bar wanted to be there, however, the younger staff were very nice and helpful. The pub wasn't very busy but was told there was a 45 minute wait for food. Food arrived and we were all... More
