Duke of Wellington, The

The Duke of Wellington

There’s something hugely comforting about this place: maybe it’s the charming central island bar, maybe it’s the healthy portions of stick-to-your-ribs food, or maybe it’s the beer. Hmmm. It’s definitely the beer. There’s always Sambrook’s Wandle on – it’s the house ale – plus a variety of guest ales, including from London brewers Brodie’s and By The Horns. There’s good beer in bottle form, too, with Bristol Beer Factory’s Southville Hop the highlight.
