"The Welly”, as it is lovingly referred to, is the heart of the picturesque village of Lund...

...and offers a unique blend of old and new. There you will find a relaxed mixture of excellent food, comfortable interiors, great beers and wines in a stunning rural location on the edge of the beautiful Yorkshire Wolds, mid way between the market towns of Beverley and Driffield and just thirty minutes drive from the historic city of York.

Russell and Sarah purchased the Wellington Inn in August 1995 and embarked on a full renovation/refurbishment project. On 16th October that year the doors to "The Welly" were thrown open to reveal a remarkable transformation.

We are first and foremost a “Traditional Country Pub”. We offer a classic, contemporary style, a formal restaurant and a traditional pub menu.

We have an honest approach to food, we keep it simple, and we keep it tasty. We try to have fun with food, yet never lose sight of the fact that the customer comes first. Accolades, Stars and rosettes don’t drive us forward, customer satisfaction does. “Satisfy the customer, then let the praise follow”.


Having spent all our working lives in catering, Sarah leads the kitchen, whilst Russell looks after the front of house. We have a passion for quality and professionalism. We try to cater for every need, little people, dietary needs, disabilities or simply an off menu request. If we can help, we will. And yes, we use local produce and suppliers, but only if we feel it is the best available.

Why compromise on quality, just to be trendy.

We are open year round with the exception of Christmas and New Years Day.

...Boiler suit and wellies for a quick pint before tea, or dressed in black tie for dinner with friends, we welcome all and look forward to welcoming you soon.
