Affectionately known to regulars as the “Duke of Boots”, The Duke of Wellington is the perfect London city pub to take the weight off your feet in beautiful Belgravia. A cosy and inviting 19th century pub tucked away behind Sloane Square and the Kings Road, our old London pub serves traditional food and outstanding cask ales to a wide range of clientele.
Tourists always drop into The Duke to experience the best-of-British fare, while local ale aficionados return regularly to enjoy a perfectly-poured pint. What’s more, with the pub close to Victoria station, The Duke is also a popular stop for the capital’s commuters.
All guests receive the very warmest of welcomes with beautiful hanging baskets greeting arrivals in summer and a cosy real fire providing respite in the winter. As a dog-friendly pub, we also extend our welcome to your four-legged friends.
‘Iron Duke’ memorabilia lines the walls here (the pub is named after the first Duke of Wellington), but, for sports fans, it’s the big screen TVs that catch the eye. Live football, rugby, and cricket is regularly shown on Sky Sports, making this one of the best football pubs in London.
It’s all a far cry from the building’s original use as a reading room – 19th century residents came here simply to read the morning newspapers. Yet, many locals said they’d rather have liquid refreshment than reading matter and, thankfully, the rest is history…
