Oh, the things the Wellington's seen over its 180 years. Bombs dropping on neighbours, nearby grinding wheels coming to a halt, gravestones moved to make way for the road, the advent of the Supertram. Thankfully this resolute pub has weathered it all; today, it's the quietly charming tap for Neepsend Brew Co.
The Wellington has a humble exterior that belies its cosy rooms. It's a classic, traditional snug full of warmth and personality, serving well-conditioned cask ales and a wide selection of whiskies.
Right next to Shalesmoor tram stop – the closest stop to Kelham Island – this pub is the ideal starting point for a trail round this particularly ale-friendly corner of Sheffield city centre.
The Wellington is part of our real ale trail around cosy pubs of Kelham Island.
