The Duke of Wellington Apr 02, 2011
The Duke of Wellington is a pub in Hatfield Peveral, Essex.  I took my mother

there for mother’s day. 


Situated in a small town not far from Chelmsford, The Duke of Wellington is a

large pub with a pleasant modern extension and a beer garden.  It is part of a

pub chain, one of the ones that focuses on food, which normally puts me off a

little.  But Mum wanted to go and, as she often is, Mum was right. 


The pub has quite a long menu, including lots of specials.  The focus is very

much on traditional British foods.  Irritatingly, the first two things I wanted

had already run out – at 1pm on a Saturday, that was slightly annoying.  But

eventually I chose something they actually still had, steak and ale pie.  All

the food was lovely.  The gravy with my pie had clearly come from actual meat

juices, rather than granules, and the pastry also looked like a real person had

made it for me, rather than like it had been made in a factory somewhere and

heated up.  Mum’s fish was fresh and the batter was crispy.  You order at the

bar, which is fine, and then the waitresses bring things over.  The service was

great and friendly.  If you aren’t driving, there is a decent range of wines by

the glass and some nice beers, and they do nice soft drinks like Fentimans too. 


I may well go back to this pub, which I really liked.  The only slight annoyance

was another family who let their kids run wild, and that’s obviously not the pub’s fault, but it does mean I might avoid lunch times the day before mother’s day!
