To make pastry:

To make crepes:
Sift flour & salt & sugar into bowl. Beat eggs & milk together, adding cooled melted butter.
Whip into flour mixture & rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Brush a non stick pan with butter & oil & heat the pan.
Ladle 1/3 - 1/2 cup crepe batter into hot pan & cook for 1-2 minutes.

To prepare steak and mushroom/onion pate:
Bring beef fillets to room temperature.
Season beef with salt & pepper & drizzle with olive oil
Cook individual eye fillets in a hot pan until sealed & browned on all surfaces.
In the same pan gently saute onion until soft & transparent.
Add mushrooms, bay leaf & fresh thyme leaves.
Season with salt & pepper add white wine & simmer gently until the mixture is dry-ish.
Add flat leaf parsley.
Roll out the pastry long enough & wide enough to cover your beef.
Lay crepes over pastry & then spoon/spread a layer of mushrooms/onions/garlic onto crepe.
Place beef on top of mushroom mix, bring crepe up to enclose sides then top with another crepe to hold lower crepe in place.
Bring pastry up the sides of the crepe/beef & crimp at the top.
Brush pastry with beaten egg yolk/water & refrigerate for 10-20 minutes to cool pastry.
Bake @ 220DegC for 15 minutes if cooking individual eye fillets - test with probe thermometer - medium rare = 65-67DegC.
You need to extend cooking time to 30 minutes if cooking whole eye fillet.
It may sound fiddly and time consuming but it is well worth all the effort! I would go as far as to say that this would probably serve 4 people - cut each wellington in half (or two ravenously hungry bodies!)
