  • Wellington Court is a Niagara gem! Fabulous food, great wine list, amazing staff & the live music on Friday nights in the summer is such a special treat for anyone visiting. 10/10 experience.

  • This restaurant was on point. First time, but won’t be our last. Food was spectacular. Service was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating. The server paired local wines to all of our courses with passion and was bang on.

Wellington Court Restaurant Team


Erik Peacock grew up around the food business. An early exposure to the food business, paired with the beautiful bounty of the Niagara food and wine region, shaped Erik’s future as a chef. After spending time in Australia Erik returned to Ontario where he attended George Brown College in Toronto for Culinary Arts. Upon his return the wine and food scene in Niagara was emerging. This opportunity delighted Erik. He formed relationships with winemakers and winery owners as well as local food producers. They inspired Erik to create a menu focused on local ingredients infused with international flavours.  He is always reaching for perfection in and out of the kitchen.

Ross Midgley

Raised in Prince Edward Island, Ross grew up around hospitality. His mother absolutely hated the kitchen but was, nonetheless, a consummate entertainer and from a young age Ross learned the intricacies of hosting a good party. In retrospect, it is no surprise that after university and stints in teaching, small business and banking Ross was ‘born again’ and returned to his Island home to attend The Culinary Institute of Canada.

After graduation, Ross moved to Niagara where he has made a name for himself, cooking in several of the area’s top kitchens including Tiara at Queen’s Landing and Trius at Hillebrand Estates. He has held the Executive Chef position at Zees Restaurant, The Kitchen House at Peninsula Ridge, The Oban Inn, Windows by Jamie Kennedy, Stone Road Grille and Ravine Vineyard Estates.

Ross is a born teacher and has shared his enthusiasm beyond his brigade, teaching classes at Niagara College Food and Wine Institute and The Good Earth Cooking School.

Ross’ love of food is equaled only by his love for good rock’n’roll. ‘Ultimately both are about entertainment’ he says. The only love more profound for him is that which he feels for his family. Ross’ wife Wendy is a qualified Sommelier and fellow ‘foodie’, and his three boys are ‘obviously going to be rock stars who cook well’.
