Closure Announcement

We are currently undergoing a refurbishment at The Wellington and will be closed from 27 October. We re-open on 19 November so please come in and see us after this time and let us know what you think of our new look.

Welcome to The Wellington

You will find The Wellington in Strand London within a short stroll of Aldwych, Covent Garden and Burleigh Street - however you won't find another like it.

Step in to discover a traditional pub of unique character, revered for its eclectic range of real ales and its quality pub food, which are served, as they should be, with a generous measure of famous British hospitality.

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.

One of a kind

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.

Famous for a general who defeated Napoleon and became prime minister
