The Wellington Pub in Covent Garden

Popular Nicholson’s pub right by the junction of thye Strand, Aldwych and Waterloo Bridge. Much improved from years ago this pub is now somewhere actually worth visiting.

A good selection of real ales is available and they seem to be well kept – on a hot night it is obvious that the cellar is kept at a good temperature. Sharps (Coors) Doom Bar seems to be a constant here as does Fullers London Pride. The other beer selections are a bit more interesting.

Food is available from the standard Nicholson’s menu.

The Wellington is now much better than the nearby Lyceum – a Sam Smiths pub which used to be the must-visit real ale pub in this area.

Last visited: February 2012
