The Wellington

This award winning city centre bar is the Midlands destination for real ale lovers. CAMRA Pub of The Year on many occasions, The Wellington features in The Good Beer Guide, and is renowned as much for its outstanding range (16 ale and 3 cider hand pumps) as for the depth of understanding and knowledge of ale shown by Nigel and the staff…….and Welly, the cat! The Wellington has now been extended to provide an upper bar area, function/meeting room and beautiful roof terrace. Permanent guest ales on offer include : Wyre Valley HPA; Oakham Citra; Purity Mad Goose; Froth Blowers Piffle Snonker alongside our own BCA ales and an ever changing beer board! 150 whiskies are also stocked. We are in negotiations with BCC and very much hope to improve disability access very soon, but meanwhile, please do ask for assistance if needed. A regular array of entertainments feature, including monthly cheese nights, quizzes and live music. Bar snacks are available, but most customers are more than happy to take up our offer of plates and cutlery, and bring their own food! The city offers innumerable outlets for food, which can nowadays even be delivered to your table….or just bring something home made with you! Assistance dogs are welcome, but Welly, the pub cat appreciates it if others are left at home! Metered car parking available outside and many public car parks are nearby. There is a heated smoking shelter on the ground floor. Sky and BT Sports are shown on big screens. Beer festivals? Well, of course….but as one of our Trip Advisor reviewers points out….”every day is a beer festival at The Welly”!
