Sunday Lunch
A beautiful pub located on Theobald Street in the leafy suburb of Borehamwood, dating back to as early as 1851 when it was formally known as The Jolly Steamer.

Traditional yet contemporary, The Wellington will make you feel at home to catch up with friends over a bottle of wine, enjoy a meal with the family to celebrate a special occasion, or watch the latest sporting event in our dedicated sports zone.

We have a choice of uniquely styled rooms and spaces to enjoy a quality food offering, along with a great selection of real cask ales, fabulous wines and a vast range of gins available from the bar.

Our secret garden is a beautiful secluded space to enjoy the warmer weather, whilst our picturesque stables are perfect to host a special occasion or unique dining experience for up to 30 guests.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.

Emma was great who served us. She kept us updated and checked on our meals. Unfortunately we had to wait for nearly an hour until our food came. My food was hot but the rest of my parties was luke warm with hot gravy poured over the top.

The desert was much quicker!

I have been before but this was the most disappointing.

A lot of effort to decorate for the season - looks so cosy, well done.
Service was slow due to reduced staff & lack of customers meant it was pretty cold but food was fabulous. Haven’t had a burger in a long while and it was worth the wait.

The service was terribly slow. It took 15 minutes for our order to be taken and nearly 20 minutes for the drinks to turn up. We’d barely finished up when we got hurried up to leave.

It’s not normally this slow so I can only assume they were having problems somewhere.

Booked through open table and phoned them straight after to book the stables. Arrived and they didn't booked stables. Ordered sausage and mash. They had been microwaved too much and was hard and fish and chips. Fish was ok but chips were warm and peas were dried out.
Waitress was lovely.

Very polite staff and food was brilliant, although with steak and ale pie my husband could have done with much larger portion of mash! Atmosphere perfect and great value for money. Will be going back soon !.

The Wellington has everything you need - decent ambience, good enough service and a wide range behind the bar. The staff could do with a better knowledge of wine but that’s me being fussy. Everything is decently priced. I look forward to dining here.

Warm welcome, Covid safe, food was excellent. More of a constructive criticism, when customers are seated at the back, it might be an idea for a member of staff to check once in a while if drinks etc are needed, especially as we are not encouraged to approach the bar.

I have tried to support this venue since it’s reopening. My recent visit was disappointing as the service was painfully slow. Almost half hour from order to 1 of our 3 meals arriving - then we had to chase for the other 2. Such a shame as I’ll think twice about going again & my guests will certainly not revisit
