South-coast Breakfasts : Wellies Restaurant

South-coast Breakfasts : Wellies Restaurant

With the long Easter weekend ahead of us, we decided to start the 4 days off with a hearty walk at Kingley Vale Nature Reserve followed by Brunch at a new restaurant in a converted barn a few miles down the road. It was also a good excuse to escape from the house as our builders are still hammering and sawing away, even on Good Friday.

I have seen mention of Wellies restaurant in a few local magazines and online and it’s been on our list of places to try for a while. It’s miles from anywhere, literally in a farm yard with fields surrounding it. It’s a place frequented by walkers and horse-riders, more than the usual beach-goers and yachties.

They are open seven days and serve evening meals on Thursday, Fridays and Saturdays. The main restaurant is quite small, but there’s a lovely deck at the back looking out on to a courtyard which is doggie friendly and accessible (even with dogs) through the main restaurant.

Our Easter feast consisted off a large full English (for Jim) a small English (for Theo) bacon and scrambled eggs (for me) hot chocolate, cappuccino and orange juice.When we arrived at 11am we were the only people there, but by the time we left it was starting to fill up with people arriving for lunch.


By its own admission, Wellies is off the beaten track, but it’s definitely worth seeking out. Amidst tranquil surroundings it feels exclusive and undiscovered and the food is great. We’ve had a sneaky look at the dinner menu and we will definitely be going back. (It would be lovely for my birthday in August – hint hint!) Visitors to Goodwood or the Festival Theatre could do a lot worse than jumping in the car and heading west to track this place down.
