A spruced-up boozer on the Bermondsey Beer Mile.

The Marquis of Wellington has had a facelift. Until late last year it looked rather forlorn and a bit rough, but now it’s got a bold new look, with a sign so large you could read it from the top of the Shard. Clearly this is a pub that wants you to know it’s there, which is understandable given the nearby Bermondsey Beer Mile breweries vying for attention.

Inside you’ll find beers from a few of those breweries – including Anspach & Hobday just over the road – alongside some more familiar numbers from the likes of Camden Town and Meantime, plus a small selection of pizzas that’ll keep you going if you’re boozing on an empty tank. All of this is served from a bar-cum-kitchen set in the middle of a space with a slightly unfinished vibe. It’s the kind of decor that makes you wonder whether it’s deliberate or they just ran out of money halfway through renovations.

Still, this is a pub that’s comfortable and buzzy, and there’s plenty of room for the crowds that’ll inevitably spill over from Maltby Street market on the weekend. Steer clear of the backyard – inexplicably spray-painted in a kaleidoscope of garish colours – and you’ll soon find yourself back for a return visit. Can’t find it? Just look for a sign.

Ok pub, too expensive for what it offers but most of our visits here were friendly except this one time. This guy claimed to be the owner of the pub and was very rude to us, including his friends that sat at our table without even asking and threw my lighter on the floor because I dared to ask them to be polite. Teenage old men with no manners and if this guy is really the owner he should be ashamed of his behavior it just makes him look like a complete fart head.

Glad to see this pub has been reopened as it was looking quite a state for a while. They have quite a few of the local brews on tap so it's not a bad shout if the actual beer establishments are heaving or full of hen/stag parties (god I miss the days when no one knew about Maltby Street market and the Kernel was still open and selling beer....). We had pizza from here and I must say they were quite large given the price and they even have a special with a pint their house beer. Quick to come out, with a nice crispy thin crust-- be sure to ask for the chili oil.


They also have a food truck outside and it varies weekly, and they sometimes even have a hatch INSIDE the pub to order from it... so no need to have to go outside! I highly recommend the Poutine truck if/when it comes back. Pure. Heaven.
