I was a bit disappointed in this place. Lots of casks, but thatís about it. Downstairs bar was having quiz night, and the upstairs bar was closed despite having plenty of people in it and a working barman. Terrace off the upstairs bar was mainly for smokers. Slightly depressing atmosphere, but might be better on a return visit.

ManVsBeer  (1735) Hebden Bridge, England | February 1, 2013
Easily the best place for real ale, in fact its bar sports very little else out front, although alternatives are available behind. Itís very popular at the weekend so expect to stand, especially as food is an option here as well. Located in the heart of the city center it is an easy stop on a pub crawl of several of Birminghamís best listed ale bars. The decor is a little ordinary.

This large pub in the city centre is known for its extensive beer range, which includes lots of local and regional brews. There are 16 hand pumps listed on television screens around the downstairs rooms and they are constantly updated. Itís worth looking upstairs too as the bar there had two additional beers on draught when we visited. The pub is partly owned by the people who own the Craven Arms and in my view the latter is nicer Ė more cosy and friendly, whilst the Wellington can get very crowded. Itís rather hotel-like but it does have a nice roof terrace and itís handy to know that you can also access the Old Joint Stock via the back alley. When we visited it had been newly decorated and unfortunately the smell of paint was overwhelming. (Last visited 6 July 2013).

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

Theydon_Bois  (1006) Tourist Town (West), England | July 27, 2013
Visited as the last port of call before the train home on the RB Black Country Bus Bash - 06/07/13. Central location and about a 5 minute dash to New St station. The place smelt of paint fumes on our visit following a refurb, a minor grumble peculiar to our visit but obviously canít be helped. Old meets new in terms of 16 ever changing cask lines and all beers displayed on TV screens. There were around 13 on during our visit, largely midland based micros. Black Country Ales always feature as regulars. The pub itself was fairly long and narrow with a patio to the rear. Service was very good for what was a vibrant city centre pub, banter on offer from the youngish bar staff and they were prompt in serving and keeping waiting time down. Live music was setting up but thankfully we were leaving before Lonny Donegan and his mates got going. If youíre going to put music on keep it to a venue with multiple rooms so sanctuary can be found - please! Great pub, good range, top service.

Final stop during the RateBeer Black Country Bash, and easily one of the best. After about ten hours of fairly aggressive drinking I wasnít exactly in the mood for more beer, but the Oakham Citra Special on cask here was absolutely stunning. I could have continued drinking that beer well into the night - it was just that good and drinkable. Aside from that beer, the Wellington is a nice place. It smelled like they had recently put down a fresh layer of paint; kind of a double-edged sword, that. The staff was quick and friendly. Plenty of seating. Live music on the Saturday evening we were there. Good value beers. Plenty of interesting styles of beer available. I would imagine this place is a highlight of the Birmingham beer scene.

I think that this is truly an excellent pub and one that I would jump at the chance of visiting again. A fantastic range of beers, probably unequalled throughout the UK one would imagine. On the day that I visited 01-12-07 it was absolutley heaving with folk, was sweaty and standing room only my beer was a bit warm but I reckon that this was more of a case of the environment being so stuffy and hot and not a slur on the pub at all, the bar staff seemed very knowledgable and I would definately head to here again.

imdownthepub  (866) Banbury, England | December 4, 2013
This has been an institution in the Birmingham Real Ale scene since it started up a few years back. Itís set in a great position between Victoria Square and the Commercial area. There is always a lot of choice, although the usuals are building up now, so the changing beers have become a little less. No food is served, but you are free to bring in your own. The place is generally pretty full at most times of day and seating can be difficult to sort out. The Bar is also pretty packed at times, although the electronic board helps in choosing the beers.
Updated Rating Dec í12. A bit of an improvement in here, the carpets have been cleaned, itís had an air through and the beer quality seems to be better. An improved mark from me and is now my new favourite in Birmingham.
Update Dec í13. The beer quality is definitely top notch now and the ambiance much improved. It remains our favourite venue in Brum for 2013/14.

Great little pub in downtown Birmingham with a rotating variety of UK micros. After sampling a few on tap (jncluding the delicious Oakham Citra), I opted for a bottle of Brewdog Abstrakt AB:04. Very friendly and helpful service, and nice decor. Would definitely be back if in the area.

Visted during the Ratebeer Black Country Bash. Awesome spot right in the middle of Birmingham city centre. Nicely modernized space that unusually for England features air conditioning. Something like 12 beers featured on cask including the superlative Oakham Citra Special. Service was prompt. Prices reflected the central location. Overall, a must-visit if youíre traveling though the area.
