Welcome to 2019

Now that the fun of Christmas and New Year is over, January can sometimes seem a little bleak. But don’t worry, we’re here to help you through it!

    • As much sport as we can possibly squeeze onto our screens
    • Our regular monthly quiz on Sunday 27th January
    • A variety of non-alcoholic drinks if that’s what’s floating your boat at the moment

The days are getting longer we promise. Join us for a pint and a pie and it’ll be spring before we know it.

Easter Weekend

Looking forward to the bank holiday? So are we! Not only are #BHAFC playing at home on Saturday but we’re showing all the televised sport, including Crystal Palace vs Liverpool at 12:30 on Saturday (31 March)  which could be… interesting. There’s comedy upstairs on Good Friday and Easter Saturday, and generally good times all round.

The kitchen’s open as usual for pies and mash, 12-2pm and 5-9:30pm on Good Friday, 12-9:30pm on Saturday and 12-5:30pm on Easter Sunday.

Upstairs, Sweet @ The Welly will be showing…

Children and Animals

Well-behaved children are more than welcome in the Welly, as long as they’re with a responsible adult. We’re also very dog-friendly, although it can get busy and crowded on match days.

In line with the law, obviously we can’t serve alcohol to anyone under 18 so please bring your passport or other photo ID if you’re lucky enough to look under 25.

Burns Night

It’s Burns Night so what better excuse to crack into our excellent single malts? There’s 12-year-old Highland Park, Laphroaig, Glenfiddich and Old Pulteney, or Johnnie Walker Red Label and Chivas Regal blends if that’s more your thing.
