This has been an institution in the Birmingham Real Ale scene since it started up a few years back. It’s 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 ’12. A bit of an improvement in here, the carpets have been cleaned, it’s 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 ’13. The beer quality is definitely top notch now and the ambiance much improved. It remains our favourite venue in Brum for 2013/14.

City centre boozer. 16 cask ales, 3 ciders. Ales come from far and wide as well as the Black Country range & other West Midlands breweries. Should be beer heaven, but atmosphere is a little bit lacking.

What can I say about this magnificent institution that hasn’t been said before? An extensive list of ever changing, top-quality real ale and ciders, a spot-on atmosphere of no music and good conversation, and a knowledgable staff with a passion for beer. This truly is a real-ale utopia, and now that they have the roof-top terrace the drinker even has more space to enjoy their tipple. The only downside to The Wellington is that it’s so dependably brilliant that if you’re a Brummie like me it demotivates you from going anywhere else and you have to drag yourself away!

Big cask list, lots of variation, but I kinda felt they stretched themselves thin with so many casks and the condition suffered a bit. Nice patio if you aren’t too offended by smoke. Staff ranged from average to Not very bright, though all were friendly. Decent place, but Post Office is a step above this.

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 can’t 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 you’re 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.

Based on the reviews from the London crew I stopped in here while visiting Birmingham. If not for the need to get home I could have stayed all night. With about 14 beers at any given time there is something for everyone. Rather than just dull milds the selection includes a mixture of locals and breweries like Oakham, Tring, and even a few German handles in case you want something with an international flair.

Prices were pretty much in line with the average pub. There are not any real bargains to be had but at the same time you are not paying £4.00 except perhaps on the highest gravity offerings.

Leighton  (1032) London, England | July 18, 2013
Final stop during the RateBeer Black Country Bash, and easily one of the best. After about ten hours of fairly aggressive drinking I wasn’t 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.

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. It’s 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 – more cosy and friendly, whilst the Wellington can get very crowded. It’s rather hotel-like but it does have a nice roof terrace and it’s 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).

Big open airy place in the middle of Brum. Service was quick and the beers in good condition. The atmosphere was a bit cool and clinical and there was a whiff of paint fumes which didn’t help but overall it is definitely worth a visit.

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 you’re traveling though the area.
