Both meals were very tasty and the portion... More

Stopped off here for lunch on the way to our holiday cottage. Friendly staff and a pleasant pub lunch encouraged us to try it again for dinner. Unusually for us we didn't have a starter but this meant there was room for dessert. Hadn't had a banana split for years so decided to rectify this. Good idea, it was pretty... More

The meal arrived quickly, the Steak was a perfect med rare, the Port & Stilton sauce was excellent and the portion size was huge. The staff were friendly and efficient which made for a really enjoyable meal given I was alone. Hats... More

A friend and I recently visited the Wellesley arms for lunch. Very friendly staff. The decor looks rather run down. The menu is very limited and food quite plain. My friend is vegetarian and there was only one option for him. I thought the prices were high for the portion size, although the presentation was good. It's not somewhere I... More

I had pre-booked my group of 26 in at The Wellesley Arms at Sutton Benger, just off M4, for morning refreshments. We were welcomed to the delightful old skittles alley, behind the main pub building, where everything was ready and waiting as I had phone ahead of our arrival. If you are looking for such a stop away from motorway... More

We were told that most of food is supplied from local outlets, this is why the meals are so fresh & tasty. All the staff there are... More

Visited Wellesley Arms twice during our holiday. Sunday lunch was amazing. The food was delicious and plenty. On our second visit we all had a curry i can honestly say this was the best curry I have ever had. One daughter is a very fussy eater and the staff went out of their way to accommodate her. Service is fantastic... More
