A fascinating past
Our pub dates from 1903 and is well known for featuring an attractive neo-gothic exterior. We retain many lovely original features such as our long wooden bar. We are of course, named after Arthur Wellesley, Duke of Wellington, whose historic victory over Napoleon in 1815 ended the Napoleonic Wars. We sit next to Covent Garden, a name derived from the 'Convent Garden' which belonged to Westminster Abbey.

The Wellington is one of many rare gems in the Nicholson's collection of great British pubs, reputed for their distinctive buildings, intriguing history and vibrant atmosphere.
