Close to Covent Garden and the Courtauld Gallery, The Wellington is a traditional London pub dating back to 1903. Boasting an attractive neo-gothic exterior and a long wooden bar, as well as pavement dining in the summer, the pub serves a long menu of delicious British dishes.

Since Nicholson’s pubs were first established in 1873, these traditional British inns have become synonymous with warm hospitality, hearty pub food and a speciality range of ales. As well as always featuring British pub classics like beer-battered fish & chips and gammon & eggs, The Wellington menu is complemented by a rotating selection of pie, sausage & chop and fish specials for each season.

The Wellington bar is always stocked with exquisite gins, warming whiskies and fine wines to pair with favourite meals, and there’s always a superb range of seasonal and regional real ales on offer. A constant at the bar is the St Austell-brewed Nicholson’s Pale Ale, made with Cornish Maris Otter malts, and a hand-picked blend of English hops.

The Wellington on the Strand is an 8-minute walk from Temple Tube Station.

    We booked the afternoon tea and it was perfect! Warm scones freshly out of the oven, delicious finger sandwiches and some little sweet extra treats. Would do it again any time! Cute location close to the river.

    The whole meal was absolutely fantastic - the pie speciality menu was an unexpected surprise, but both of us ordered from the selection. The venison pie was delicious, as was the chicken. Vegetables were cooked perfectly, lovely mash and we ordered a side of chips which were also excellent. Too full for dessert, unfortunately, but plenty of lovely sounding dishes to choose from. Rhubarb gin and tonics for us both, too, and so reasonably priced for London. And what a great location - right next door to the theatre we had tickets booked for! We booked a table in advance and I was glad we did as the tables filled up fast. Superb service, warn and inviting atmosphere and great food - couldn't ask for more! Highly recommended.

    Brilliant as always. Jose always is a pal, and Becky was as attentive as usual. Everyone loves the Wellie. Everyone I take, goes back on their own, sometimes not asking me too. How very dare they! Great food, atmosphere, position, on the Strand, near the theatres - great for lunch before a matinee, or we went after seeing The Girls musical on 18th. All eight of us. Nothing phases the Wellie. And go to see the show. Simply wonderful. Worth the walk from the Wellie - 15 minutes. Often have a celebratory lunch when I have a book coming out, with about 10 to 12 people. Never been thrown out yet!

    Good service, adequate proportions, tasty food. Enjoyable post-theatre meal in the early evening. Beef Pie was excellent. Presentation of food not great, and the butter was too hard to spread on my partner's sour dough bread served with the smoked salmon. Why do restaurants do this?

    Service was really good and friendly. We all had different meals and the food was great especially the chicken, mushroom and leek suet pudding. Great choice of food on the menu so something for everyone.

    Arrived an hour early because of bad weather and waitress was happy to fit us in. Service very good and friendly. Food was lovely? I had a vegetarian pie and my husband had sausage and mash. There was a very good menu. We will definitely return when in central London.
