“A warm, welcoming, comfortable place with excellent food”“line-caught Shetland cod and good steaks” are stand-outs – this family-run inn is “extremely popular” (hence “very busy” and “noisy at times”).

In Hook Bank, a “really good gastropub” with designer touches and a menu encompassing both classics and more adventurous grub; it has split opinion in the past but, with “attentive” staff and an “overall relaxing” vibe, the majority “cannot really ask for much more”.

A stylish country inn with an “excellent restaurant” and views of the Malvern Hills; reports have been polarised in the past, but were uniformly solid this year. “The menu changes regularly, even for vegetarians and vegans”.

Reporters are evenly divided on this “former pub in the middle of nowhere”, which inspires a good deal of interest; while fans say that it’s a “very relaxed” spot, where the frequently changing menu “never disappoints”, critics find it merely “mediocre”, and are “sad to think this is regarded as one of the best in the Malvern area”.

Have you eaten at Inn at Welland?

Owner's description

We located to the area in 2004 after purchasing the Verzon Hotel in Ledbury. Following an extensive refurbishment we created a small luxury boutique hotel resulting in recognition from prestigious guides such as Mr & Mrs Smith. Previous to this we operated a successful 2 AA rosette riverside restaurant for 16 years in Derbyshire.

Our food is prepared from fresh local produce and made from ‘scratch’, by a team of five talented chefs headed by Chris Exley and all sharing our vision and passion for quality food.

From the outside the Inn is located in a truly rural setting with quintessential English views of the Malvern Hills. When you step inside you will experience a genuine home-from-home atmosphere, flagstone floors, walls in muted colours, shabby chic furniture all unite to create a stylish and comfortable ambiance.

When the weather is warm enjoy lazy lunches or evening suppers in our terraced gardens with an external fireplace - we have cosy wool blankets to enjoy alfresco drinks as winter approaches, under our new glazed veranda. For that special occasion dine in private in our library themed room for up to 12 people.

Our philosophy is simple: — ‘attention to detail, value for money, aimed at the style conscious with discerning appetites’.

We look forward to welcoming you.
David & Gillian
