After a warm couple of hours wandering around and enjoying the architecture of North Adelaide, we enjoyed a decent bottle of cool sauvignon blanc. Service good and pub had decent atmosphere and was reasonably busy for weekday arvo.

We had lunch here. It was not too busy on a Friday lunch and we had no trouble getting a table. There is a range of items on the menu, mostly pub bistro style. The food was OK rather than good and I would probably not go back to eat (although I would give the burgers a try next time,... More

Nice pub food and a happy atmosphere. Table tennis table was popular with the kids. A great place to eat before heading to Adelaide Oval.

We went here on a really hot afternoon for drinks and dinner and found the view looking out onto the super green Wellington Square was very pleasing. The bar service was friendly and efficient and it turned out to be a very pleasant place to meet. My only disappointment was for dinner I ordered pork belly and when it arrived,... More

This was my first visit here for some time, and it was a pleasant experience. The hotel has an open area at the front, where they can pull back the window/doors and you can sit either on the sidewalk or within the hotel, yet still enjoy the fresh air. On a sunny summer day, this can be quite pleasant. The... More

I am amazed by all the great reviews here. Maybe we ordered badly! I had fish and chips. The fish was a small serve for a pub meal, it was way over cooked and very dry. My husband had a chicken burger (he should have had the beef one), very uninspiring grilled chicken, some coleslaw and mayo. The kids chicken... More

The Wellington Hotel is a great place to drink and eat and if your feeling sporty you can have a game of table tennis while your there. The staff Ed, Kristine, Adam, Bethany, Jesse, Zak and the rest are fantastic hosts so if your in North Adelaide this venue is a must to visit and you won't be disappointed. Enjoy.

Thank Ian S
