Located in the beautiful market town of Marlborough, and serving hearty Pieminister pies throughout the day, there’s little not to love about The Wellington Arms. Now reopened following a full refurbishment, the pub has been classically restored with the welcome addition of an extended dining area and brand new beer garden.
Come on In
Set in the heart of Marlborough, The Wellington Arms’ complete transformation has revealed a bright and airy space ideal for after-work catch ups or lounging at the weekend.
A modern décor sits alongside traditional woodwork and brass fixtures, all illuminated by contemporary light features. The pub’s old kitchen has been knocked through to create an extended dining area at the back of the pub, while a brand-new beer garden has been unveiled. When the sun is out, guests can head outside and take their pick from a selection of picnic tables or the garden’s covered area lit up by string lights.
Pies & Pints
Snacks come in the form of mega crisps topped with fiery jalapenõs, salty olives and spicy ketchup; baked camembert with cornichons and crunchy bread sticks; and free range British sausage rolls topped with your choice of fresh chillies or spicy ketchup. While sharing platters – both for veggies and carnivores – are ideal when dining with friends.
For the main event Britain’s famous dish, pie and mash, has been given a 21st century update thanks to global flavour combinations from Pieminister. The award-winning pies are made exclusively from responsibly sourced ingredients including free range British meat and seasonal vegetables. Choose from the likes of Moo with British beef steak and ale; Meatador with beef steak, chorizo, olives and butter beans; Heidi with Somerset goats’ cheese, sweet potato, spinach and red onion; and even Saag Pie-Neer with peas, paneer, spinach, potato, chilli and mango.
Don’t fancy all that pastry? Look to Pot Pies of Captain Nemo (hake, salmon, pollock and prawns with a cheesy mash topping); Moo & Brew (slow-cooked beef steak with ale and a mash top); and Holy Macaroni (wild British venison and scotch bonnet chilli with macaroni cheese).
No pie is complete without sidekicks of mash, minty peas and red wine and onion gravy. Experimental diners can add jalapenõs, PM No.10 Chutney, macaroni and cheese and spiced cabbage too.
A collection of cask ales and keg beers including Caledonian Deuchars IPA, Sharps Doom Bar Amber Ale, and Sambrook’s Wandle make for the perfect pie pairing.
Those with a penchant for the UK’s most-trending spirit can take ginspiration from the pub’s expertly developed gin menu. Here, premium gins including Broker’s, Langley’s and Sipsmith are perfectly paired with selected Fever Tree tonics. Grape fans are also well catered to with an extensive wine list.
The perfect place for winding down after work, grabbing lunch with friends, the pub promises to become Marlborough’s new go-to haunt.
