The Old Wellington is at the centre of an attractive little cluster of pubs near the cathedral. It’s in a lovely old black and white building that was moved here from its original site nearby when the city centre was redeveloped in the late 1990s. It’s a Nicholson’s pub but feels a bit less corporate than many of their other places. The bar area inside is really quite small, although there’s a dining room upstairs and a large outdoor patio. There are around 8 handpumps with the usual Nicholson’s range. (Last visited 5 April 2014).

This pub was positioned here along with its Sam Smiths neighbour following the IRA bombing of the area in 1996. Dating back from the 17th century it shares the attractive front patio area with its neighbour, although the majority of the patrons here are taking advantage of the much cheaper prices in Sinclair’s Oyster Bar than the Old Wellington, so the latter now has a partition so that its own patrons at least get some of the spaces available. Like its neighbour it is an old-world styled pub with an emphasis on wooden furniture and furnishings and this is the place to come if you are looking for food as well as a drink out of the two places. It also has the better and changing range of ales that the other pub can not do given its limited unchanging range. Prices have risen to over £4 a pint in 2015 for the guest ales. The upstairs is for diners only.
