|A fabulous range of ales enlightened a visit to this backstreet boozer which is nonetheless situated handily for the town centre of this curious county town, part grim shopping precincts, part rich history. Great service and superb interior decoration fitted well with the Dragon Slayer and Mary Jane beers from the Banks and Taylor brewery. Convivial in the extreme and worth the train or bus journey to visit in itself.|

|Just recently this place has taken a bit of a tumble in my view. Beer quality is going down and down and some of the staff (the narcissistic goth girl in particular) need to cheer the f**k up and be a bit more welcoming to the people coming in through the door. A few of the regulars (more regular than us anyway) need to stop treating the place like their own and let people near the bar to see the wares too, and not get arsey with people as they crane their heads over or around them to look at the clips.|
I never thought in a million years that I'd moan about the Welly, but there we go. Sorry to the landlady by the way, as she's always great, but things need to be done before this place goes a bit tits up like it did under Eric's management for the last year or so of his tenure.

|seems improved choice of ales, much better, even the foreign bottled beers have been restocked to some extent|

|Having visited here many times, I can confirm that The Wellington has the best beer in Bedford. There will not be many names you will recognise but sure to be something you like. The bar staff are knowledgeable and friendly. This is not a pub where much eating is done – it is a serious real ale (and cider) pub and often crowded with friendly regulars. My only negative comment is that one end of the pub, nearer the loos, often smells strongly of disinfectant, which is rather off-putting to the taste buds!|

|I visited this pub yesterday lunchtime and found there was a beer and cider festival on. I only had time for a pint as I had to get to my football match. I determined to go back in the evening to find the place packed to the gunwhales at 6pm!|
Interesting mix of customers ranging from young to quite elderly (me!). Knowledgable staff and good service. Interesting range of beers.
Cracking pub. Thoroughly recommended.
