Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

The 2009 conversion of this corner pub is a textbook example of how to update an old local for a younger, 21st-century clientele. In many ways, the Wellington hitches its wagon to tradition.

There’s an emphasis on real ales: Sambrook’s Wandle is supplemented by three guest brews, and twice-yearly beer festivals bring in a broader selection. The decent and fairly priced menu (pies, burgers) won’t frighten any horses. And the decor keeps things tastefully, handsomely familiar.

But there’s more: Saturday brunch, twice-monthly movie nights, occasional music, a broad range of spirits and late hours all add value for twenty- to fortysomething Dalstonians who find the scene on Kingsland High Street too messy for comfort. The friendly bartenders occasionally get a little over-enthusiastic with the stereo’s volume dial, but this is otherwise a great find.
