This pub serves very good reasonably priced food and has a nice outside dining area. You can sit beneath a parasol to keep the sun off while you eat and watch the kids play. I also found the staff to be very friendly with fast and attentive service. Highly recommended

Yet again another really good meal at the Duke, we went for food and were met by the very friendly staff as always, the food was lovely and arrived very fast. There was music on the night we went so that added fun to our night as we ended up staying and dancing until close. Great night all round .... More

A Green King, Old English Inn. In many ways very similar to so many others we have been in over the years. We have been here before when visiting friends, the last time was excessively noisy with folk on adjoining table being well lubricated with too much drink and we said to our friends if we were on our own...

This was a last minute decision to visit this pub, which had been previously recommended to me by a friend. It was a great Sunday lunch and although busy and we had not booked the 40 min estimated wait for food was only 20 mins and we were able to sit down at our table in advance. The food was... More

A group of us have been visiting this pub every month for the last 8 years. The food has always been fairly good and the service excellent. However the past 2 months the food has been awful. The burgers are now half the size they used to be and this month one of us ordered a steak and chips which... More

We have visited the Duke of Wellington several times and the food is always good value, not haute cuisine but tasty and with decent portion sizes. The pub is clean and well looked after. Drinks could be cheaper but it is a pub and they have to make money somehow!

Go back here every 9 months or so, always disappointing, I am not sure where the issues lie but what lands in front of you is generally disappointing and not worth the wait.

After waiting and waiting for a waitress to appear, we finally got asked what we would like to eat & drink! Didnt particularly enjoy the waiting and dinner arrived 55 mins after we got there! Having said that, the lunch was very nice, even if they didnt have any beef left. Paying minimum wage for kids to serve isnt really... More

Description
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. We have an exstensive wine menu with a range of world wines, and a cask marque for our real ale. Recently rated 4star by the food assosiation and environmental health.
