Now rather overtly an Irish bar - a blackboard as you enter proclaims that "Live Sport Shown Here Weekly" comprises Soccer, Football, Horse Racing and GAA. Several screens dotted around a room already well-described below (some on, some off), with the addition of a pool table at the far rear right plus dartboard. No real ale - a single stump was unclipped: a 500ml bottle of Fuller's London Pride was £3.60. My weeknight visit found raised and colourful Irish accents, which may have accounted for the on-the-ball barmaid's decision to turn up Heart FM to a slightly uncomfortable level (although, ashamedly, I did find myself tapping a foot along to a Rihanna song whilst scribing this). As Al mentions, it's there as you exit Turnpike Lane Tube - up to you whether you choose to venture inside or not.

The Wellington is on the opposite corner to Turnpike Lane tube station.
It looks like a single story pub from the outside,i was not expecting too much from this pub but it was there so had to be done.
Once inside there is a single oblong shaped room which runs to the rear,the bar is on the front right side,the room is bare boarded the seating bench type and normal tables and chairs,there is a small stage on the right side.
There were no real ales on the bar which was no surprise,i had a drink of keg Worthington Cream flow which was pretty crap.
There were a few TVs showing horse racing.
A pretty poor pub that was almost empty on my Thursday dinner visit.

I walked past this today and it was clearly open. There was a blackboard outside advertising them showing some boring sporting event or other and Karaoke. Despite being unable to contain my excitement at this prospect I carried on to Turnpike Lane tube to get back to familiar surroundings.

Note the pictures showing a Burger King are the original Watney's pub building which is now a Costa Coffee. The current Wellington is in Turnpike Lane on the West side of the original pub.
