Pub Overview

This classic 18th century venue, loved by many Welwyn locals and visitors to the town alike, was previously operated under a steak house concept named Cooper's Grill House. Closed since the Pandemic in March 2020, the pub will have a major investment to refocus the business on the local community with traditional Pub sports, sports TV and a traditional food menu estimated at 75% to 25% wet led.

The plans include extensive works on the garden to give customers a great area to eat or drink in the fantastic British weather!
