Set in a half-timbered building from 1552 –the oldest of its kind in Manchester – The Old Wellington is a Scheduled Ancient Monument. Close to Manchester Cathedral and Exchange Square, the traditional pub serves classic British dishes in a friendly atmosphere.
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 Old Wellington menu is complemented by a rotating selection of pie, sausage & chop and fish specials for each season.
The Old 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.
Old Wellington in Manchester is a 10-minute walk from Salford Central Rail Station.

We hadn’t been to the Old Wellington for some time, but it didn’t disappoint. Great oldie worldly atmosphere, tables no too close together. Plenty of choice on the menu, both went for a steak, which cooked to perfection. The sticky toffee pudding with custard is a must. The service was terrific, with our waitress being very happy and attentive, nothing too much trouble even thought they where very busy. All in all still a great experience, it definitely won’t be too only before we go back.

Really enjoyed dining here. I was out with my husband We both had the same meal, scampi and then lemon tart for dessert. The menu isn't extensive but suited both of us, sometimes too much choice isn't a good thing! Service was very good but it wasn't busy when we were eating - 4.30pm

Location and staff are fabulous. Very good atmosphere. Personally I was a bit disappointed with the scampi, the meat dishes looked much better. I was also disappointed that craft ciders were mostly offered from a can. Overall, decent value for money, but could do much better
