Description: Our family-run business is now firmly established as a destination dining country inn. We have created a relaxed and friendly ambiance in an eclectic interior, comfortable furnishings and an attention to detail throughout the Inn. Our ethos is simple, to deliver great quality classic food, sourcing fresh products locally. The same attention is applied to our drinks, carefully selected value for money wines from around the world, organic juices, local real ales & ciders and fabulous Nespresso coffee. When the weather is warm, enjoy lazy lunches or evening suppers in our terraced gardens, and in the evening or winter benefit from our outdoor fireplace, cosy wool blankets and our glazed veranda. Want something for a special occasion? Come and dine in private in our library for up to 12 people.

Myself and seven members of my family celebrated Christmas Day at the Inn at Welland for the second year running and it was superb.
Last year was the first time we'd ever ventured away from one of our mega Christmas dinners at home so the fact that we decided pretty much immediately to book again says it all!

The owners are so welcoming and no detail was spared, from the (very posh) crackers to beautiful home made table decorations so we felt at home and really festive straight away.

The food is out of this world, beautifully prepared and presented, and plenty of it too! We had two vegetarians in our party and when we asked if there were any extra vegetarian options when we looked at the menu a couple of weeks before our visit, Gillian produced a completely separate vegetarian menu which was just fabulous.

We arrived at 2.00pm and didn't leave until well gone 6pm and were never rushed at any point, it was all at our pace which was just great.

One of the gripes I hear people have about eating out on Christmas Day is the fact that restaurants can really hike their prices up, but The Inn at Welland is priced really sensibly and it was really good value for money for something so special.

Really can't fault it and look forward to making a hat-trick of it next Christmas :)

We were lucky enough to have our Christmas meal here. They were fully booked but due to a late cancellation they called us on Christmas eve to say there was a table available.
We had such a lovely time...... the meal was wonderful and the whole day was an experience to remember.We will definitely be back soon.

I remember this pub before it was refurbished and turned into a restaurant. It was a good pub then, but it is a better restaurant now. The owners are still finding their feet in some respects, even 18 months after they opened up the newly refurbished establishment, but they have got one thing right already - the food and the service. I was very impressed by both.

Well worth a visit.

What a great gastro pub this was. We found the pub on the Malvern By Design website and tried to book for the Saturday night although they were full so we changed our plans and went that night. Although they were still busy it was a lovely atmosphere and the pace of the meal was well judged. We both plumped for the Duck and it was excellent, the accompanying vegetables were very fresh. We aren't big eaters but my friend did try some local ice creams. They have a good wine list although my friend insisted I try the local Butty Bach Ale which was delicious also. All in all a really good value pub meal in a beautiful setting, the decor was lovely! We will be back next time we visit The Malverns.
