Classic pub with long bar full of taps. TV screens showed their 16 offerings, including some nice local(ish) ones. Very diverse styles yet exclusively Eglish. Some non-English beers were available on bottle though. Customers are mix of regulars and business it seemed, little older. Staff seemed to be focussed but in a constan hurry - mnot sure why. Prices very reasonable. Good if looking for a high quality classic English ale, ot so much if you want to wider your beer-view.

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.

One of the best place to stay in UK and an excellent european address to spend a great night drinking good beer. The ambiance is very nice and the service is decent. The selection could be better, it would be perfect.

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the Wellington on 29th December 2008 between 2030 and 2200. It seems to have improved since I first visited, and there was a buzzing atmosphere within. Although it was doing a fairly heavy trade I did not need to wait too long to find an available seat, at which in friendly company of fellow lone visitors I supped three very enjoyable half-pints
Visitors to the Wellington will need to acquaint themselves with the numbering system when ordering beers. In an innovative way, beers are listed by pump number (1-15) on large tv screens which also give an A-E grading on how light or dark respectively the beer is, alongside its price and strength. Thus you need only quote the pump number when ordering. As the beers often change (and the screens update accordingly) this system appeared to work well during my session.
It would be a good pub to spend longer in next time. Worthy of an 90 rating based upon my experiences.
Paid another visit on 28/12/2009 which consilidated my opinions on the place. Sat by the bar this time and enjoyed friendly conversations with staff and locals too!

A star of a place, very unassuming from the outside, and a proper Victorian city pub inside. Excellent selection of real ales in perfect condition, with great service, and a friendly clientele who are definitely there for the beer. Dont miss it if you are passing through Birmingham.

Visited during a wet afternoon on 12 August 2008. Excellent selection of 15 ales, mainly from the Midlands with some well chosen guests from further afield brewers such as Fernandes, Coastal and Pictish. Service was brisk and enthusiastic, and the customers were friendly enough. the real time beers listing is of great use both in the pub itself and on the internet when planning a trip.

Great pub with ever changing selection of Real Ales. Packed most of the time but with nice people and friendly atmosphere. If youíre not sure about your choice, the staff are happy to give you a taster. If you go by car though, please donít park in my reserved space, just outside the front door!

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.

Very very impressed with this place. Nice suport of the local micro breweries and plenty from further afield too. Spent a couple of hours here once during the afternoon and the turnover was still pretty rapid. Nowhere else have I seen a beer replaced as quick as here at any time of the day ! Nice touches are the blackboard (a 42 TV-screen) displaying what caskís in on live !!! .... You can bring your own food. Very innovative here. (In 2006 they had 2680 different caskís on) ... o)) ... href=http://www.thewellingtonrealale.co.uk/beerboard.php target=_new ... See blackboard from Pub live.í
