This place seems to be a little on the more upmarket, the interior looks very chain pub. But the service was solid and the beer selection wasnít mind blowing but it was pretty good.

good range of 14taps but not always on. sometimes the beers served lack condition even though turnover is high. I like the screen to inform which beer is on which tap. usually a good range of light and dark beers. Bare wood floors and plenty of seating and handy to get to in city centre. Tickerís heaven, usually a few beers not yet in db.

Situated between Snow Hill and New St stations the Wellington has been serving a great range of ale for over 10 years.
Beers are listed on a screen next to the bar with style, colour and price which is handy. Avoiding the Black Country beers which I find not to my taste thereís plenty of choice from local micros and those from much furrther afield. You can pick up something interesting here most visits. Not much in the way of Craft beer but doesnít really need to be. Other venues in Brum have this base covered. Beer is always in good condition.
Definitely worth a stop if youíve got time to kill in Birmingham

Visited the Monday 10th November 2014. Maybe the best authentic pub that I have ever visited. The place is really nice and looks like a classic pub. The beer selection is made on a screen with update of the beer selection. There are 16 cask with British beers and some local interesting product. Price are pretty. Service is good also. The place is really clean. On the roof there is a terrasse but I didnít visit it. I really recommend this place a must to see.

A little bit of a Birmingham institution. Pretty much the only place in Birmingham to get a half decent drink a few years ago. Sadly the Wellington has fallen behind the times and no modern British craft offerings are to be found. Even more forward looking Cask brewers are overlooked here. You should still be able to find a decent Oakham or Mallinsons most of the time however. And no dig to either of those as theyíre both fantastic breweries in my humble opinion.
A recent refurbishment has the place looking better then ever, including a cluttered but welcome roof terrace. The carpets have even stopped smelling like death for the time being!
Lesser staff will happily ignore you to serve friends and regulars but if Nigel is on heís a gent.
Leaving from the back door will allow you to walk straight into the beer garden of the Old Joint Stock (Fullerís), a handy short cut!

16 quickly changing cask beers with 4 devoted to Black Country beers, order by pump number, very traditional, but has has an upstairs bar area with a pleasant outdoor decked area, I also believe they have sky sports now, always full of tickers at 10am, bring your own food, always guaranteed scoops of varying quality.

I seem to be in the minority in finding this place is nowhere near as good as it used to be. Itís always been a very male, very middle-aged, very traditional place (not necessarily a criticism) but there seem to be more idiots than I remember, and both the selection and condition of some of the beers is distinctly sub-par sometimes, Citra notwithstanding. BYO food, decent bar snacks, great whisky selection, mixed bag of staff, reasonable prices.

Around 18 ales on handpump in the ground floor bar. Order the ale by the number displayed on the large flat screen.
More recently a bar upstairs with a smaller range of ales has been opened. Bring your own food in to the pub.
Only a few minutes wlak from New Street station.

Wide range of beers on a flatscreen tv telling you info, friendly staff and nice old home atmosphere. Older crowd of reserved drinkers rather than a hopping youth hangout. Nice beer
