Real Ale Ray left this review about Wellington Arms

This traditional pub consisted of a lounge and bar side with a central bar area serving both sides. The lounge side found on the left of the entrance was a decent size, with the room running parallel to the bar with an extra side room, leading out to the rear patio garden. I found the bar side on the right to be the more interesting side, with its three booth seating areas opposite the bar, with some ornate brasswork at the top of each booth. The paint work was predominately a Heritage green colour, walls and timberwork included. The bar counter top was finished in copper and I especially liked the original porcelain handpulls. Five cask ales on our visit, so we went for the Bootleg Brewing Chorlton pale, which was like drinking a smooth flow keg beer, so I drank as much as I could bare and then lashed it in the flower bed in the back garden. Fellow customers in here weren't very welcoming, along with the relief manager, who didn't want to engage with anyone. I am glad my observations were right as locals at a nearby pub said the pub has gone down the pan to what it was and most were giving it a wide berth, now I can see why...

A great little local in the back streets noted for its music and beer range. Retaining a two bar layout, it has been refurbished in a slightly dark green colour scheme but retains a warm, comfortable feel. An excellent range of beers is available from a dozen or so pumps, plus a few boxed ciders in the chiller. Do not include this pub on a crawl or you may not get past it!

A wonderfully traditional backstreet corner pub with its fair share of quirkiness as Quinno mentions. 11 handpumps all clipped up on my visit, though I only tried the one, Dark Star Sunburst at a very reasonable £3,28 a pint, other beers were Flack Manor Double Drop,Palmers Tally Ho, Dark Star Hophead and American Pale Ale, Andwells Gold Muddler,Triple fff Alton's Pride and Forbidden Fruit, XT13,Fullers London Pride and ESB.An Impressive line up for a relativly small pub, the quality of the one beer I tried was excellent.
