Well-known for its multiple screens showing even the rarest of sporting events, the Wellington Hotel has become a warm and inviting respite for weary travellers, tourists and those who live or work in the area.
Diplomats and tourists stay in the rooms upstairs, while the spacious bar area serves up decent food and beer at even more decent prices.
Despite the exterior requiring a paint job, once you step inside the Wellington opens up into one of the cheeriest places in Waterloo.
George Orwell and Buster Edwards have been known to drink here and we often stop in because this is a pub where the service is always friendly. It was one of the first deaf-friendly pubs in London and still welcomes children with accompanying adults until 8pm.
