The Wellington Inn

Reviewed By MichaelWinnerRIP - York, United Kingdom

I was shocked to see that my last review of The Wellington was six years ago - time to put that right!
After several recent visits I can report that The Wellington's standards are as high as ever. A lovely setting in peaceful Lund, excellent food prepared by Sarah and her team and delightful staff.
Seasonal fare such as the delicious Steak and Kidney Suet Pudding in winter and brilliant lobster dishes in summer enhance an already fabulous menu. Whether choosing to dine in the restaurant or bar, you can be certain of great food. The Wellington's fish and chips are particularly superior to any other establishment's offering, with an excellent light beer batter around skinned fish, garnering a "best ever" accolade from one of my guests who has been eating fish and chips for nigh on 80 years.
The wine list is similarly excellent and the current wine of the month, a Swartland mourvedre, quite outstanding.
Owners Russell and Sarah have a great team of cheerful, helpful and knowledgeable staff, mostly charming girls who take immense care of The Wellington's patrons. In the kitchen Sarah's team is incredibly skilled and flexible, catering easily for diners' special dietary needs.
I have often recommended The Wellington over its Michelin-starred neighbour- I continue to do so.

The Triton Inn

Reviewed By Locallady13 - Hull

The good part first, the food very good and some of the staff excellent.
The manager was having a difficult time with a new computer, but unfortunately, it resulted in a lack of a warm welcome to the customer, it took one of the good staff to explain his bad mood. The manager brought the drinks to the table and the age old mistake of placing his fingers all over the top of the glasses!!
There was a off duty member of staff decided to make himself very talkative to the next table and contribute to our conversation, not appropriate.
The gentleman in our group, reported a flood in the Man's WC, the manager reply implied it was all the customers' fault---, not really the answer I would of expected.
Unfortunately, I will not return to the this establishment, simply, the importance of good communication, basic hygiene requirements and health and safety have passed by the manager.

Anvil Arms

Reviewed By Duncan G

We were in Wold Newton for a wedding over the weekend, and 12 of us arrived at the Anvil Arms on Friday night, having booked and consulted about our options. The extended family included Welsh and Americans, all of whom greatly enjoyed their evening. This local has a great atmosphere,is very welcoming and Sheila gave us her personal attention. The young staff were excellent, making sure we were all well looked after, and we had a range of foods which satisfied vegetarians meat eaters and fish fans alike. for those who could manage it, the dessert choice was varied, but even Tom couldn't finish his sticky toffee! (James did better!) Both Theakstons and Black Sheep were available at the bar, and Grandma found a soft drink to her taste. We chatted away at the end and felt we had enjoyed great food at a very reasonable price. Highly recommended by all of us. Thankyou all.

The Dacre Arms

Reviewed By Reacher33 - Poulton Le Fylde, United Kingdom

Friends who live in the area took us to this establishment on a busy Saturday night and it was a good job we had booked a table because it is clearly a popular place. The staff are really great, attentive and friendly. It is a typical local pub serving good quality food. Between our party of four we had main courses of Tikka Masala curries and a steak and ale pie. All our food we opted to upgrade to ‘chunky chips’ which were wonderful. When our food arrived we were slightly disappointed that the curries were all just warm and not piping hot. I suspect that the kitchen was under pressure at this busy service time. However, to their credit a member of staff visited the table to ascertain if everything was ok and we pointed out the problem. The curries were removed immediately and with very little delay, all returned piping hot, with fresh chips and that in my view is very good customer service. No quibbles and a sincere apology from the chef. The food was delicious and 4 empty plates was a testimony to that fact!. All in all we had thoroughly enjoyed evening. Prices are very reasonable and we are only sorry that we do not live closer. Our friends who live in nearby Sigglethorne are lucky to be so close.

The Old Star Inn

The Old Star in Kilham is a traditional country pub in the heart of the Yorkshire Wolds and the local community. Real Ales and freshly prepared local meals are a mainstay. With 2 log burners and 2 open fires throughout the pub a warm welcome is guaranteed even on the chilliest winter (or summer) evening. A south-facing beer garden means children, dogs and sun-seekers are well catered for. Alternating Wednesdays we hold a quiz night. We are flexable to do take-way too, please just submit your order and we will prepare it for you! For tables of 6+ booking is appreciated as this will allow for better service for you and other diners. The pub is dog friendly, however during eating and peak hours owners are requested to ensure their dogs are under control and out of the dining areas. Looking forward to see you soon!

Although the food and the service was nice. I do feel like the oil used to cook our chips could do with changing. It's a shame as I was really looking forward to homemade chips. The rest of our food was lovely. Oh well maybe next time when we come our chips will taste better.

This is a lovely little cafe in the middle of Driffield where you are always greeted with a smile. The menu is quite varied and I particularly like the All Day Breakfast, one of the few places that include fried bread. (I know I should'nt)
