Of course being a Young's pub means that there is wide choice of drinks, ranging from finest Young's bitters to carefully selected wines from across the world. The menu at the Duke of Wellington offers everything expected from a great pub including the world famous fish and chips cooked in Young's beer batter.

We had an absolutely great time at Duke of Wellington. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The private space on the first floor has a cosy interior and its own bar, we could not wish for more! Absolutely delightful experience, thank you! Visited Duke of Wellington on 2018-01-13

Such a GREAT night - 12 of us booked in the refectory room and had a really good evening. Food was great, service was fantastic and it was a really fun place to have a group dinner between Christmas and New Year. Thank you! Visited Duke of Wellington on 2017-12-29

We had a lovely Christmas Day meal - the atmosphere was lively and fun, the restaurant cosy and inviting. The food we had was excellent - my only criticism would be the over generous portion sizes for the main course (with a Yorkshire pudding the size of a small child's head, albeit delicious) - a special "thank you" though to Neil, who was so welcoming and really took great care of me and my elderly mother.

Lovely room, great service, delicious food! The only 2 things that could be tweaked are expansion of the christmas play list and whilst very tasty it wasnt overly clear on the christmas menue that the venison option was a pie. Would greatly recomend the venue! Visited Duke of Wellington on 2017-12-20

Reply from Duke of Wellington

Hi Thank you for your kind words and celebrating Christmas with us. I will relay the venison option to the development team. And we will make sure that the play list will be more Christmasssy next year. Regards Neil

This was our third year returning to the Duke of Wellington for our Christmas Lunch. Once again the service was wonderful, our special requests were all acknowledged and adhered to where possible. It would have been difficult to provide Christmas Pudding without sultanas and raisins but where possible requests were fulfilled and alternative options were given where this was not possible. The food was top class as usual. Pre-ordering system works a treat. Everyone is responsible for doing their own order which makes life much easier when planning a party. All going well we will definitely consider this venue again in the coming years. Visited Duke of Wellington on 2017-12-07

We ate at the DoW last night. It was our first experience there having "bid" for an auction dinner at a school fund raiser. We had a lovely evening. The atmosphere in the pub down stairs is really relaxed. In the dining room upstairs where we ate there was a really nice easy atmosphere, nice and cosy roomirs with beautiful Christmas decorations, food was excellent, we tried things we wouldn't typically choose and neither of us were disappointed. My husband loves his pie of the day and I had the pork belly which melted in the mouth. The service was perfect as well. Thank you for a lovely evening. We will be back with our teenage daughters to impress them! Visited Duke of Wellington on 2017-12-02

A mixed experience. ... Despite having booked a table and receiving two emails reminding us of our booking, the staff had no table ready and said they had no notification of our booking. Then, after being seated with menus, we were informed all 3 of the meat dishes were not available. As parents of vegetarians we always eat meat on meals out, so we had planned to enjoy a fillet steak each. .... That being said, once the waitress realised how disappointed we were, and were considering leaving to eat elsewhere, she upped her game and helped us choose alternative dishes from the menu. Service was then excellent, and our burger and cod & chorizo were cooked excellently - compliments to the chef. We were also treated to a free glass of Malbec each at the end of our meal, which was a lovely gesture. We both agreed we will return, when hopefully the steak will have been delivered!

Great customer service, beautiful place, good portions of food and very tasty food. The two downsides too much salt used in cooking (people can always add salt would reduce it significantly as its over bearing) and it was incredibly hot upstairs it was like a sauna.

I ate here for the Christmas Day set menu lunch. It was a terrible experience. The food was mediocre and much too salty. Tinned beetroot dominated the starter with too much salt. The main was mediocre and plain and again too salty. The roast potatoes were the best thing of the whole meal. I didn't even finish it. The dessert of sticky pudding was dissapointedly cold with the "sauce" still solid on the top and the paper served on the plate under the cake. The worst part was the timing. I waited over 20min to get my entree (slow but ok), but then another 45 minutes (!) for my next dish. I complained I'd waited over an hour of the supposed 1.5 hr sitting and was still waiting for my next course. The waitress then brought out the main dish (but forgot the sides too), instead of the '2nd dish' of lemon sorbet. After my complaint about it, she then brought this out, at which point I was very hungry so ate this too quick to enjoy, the main was then brought out to me. The waitress then aware I had been waiting so long brought out the dessert immediately following the main but it would have been nice to have a slight rest between the main and dessert. Not eat three courses in 20minutes. It was cold anyway so I let it sit there, but the ice cream then started to melt. They were not even that busy so no idea why it took so long!! And was prepared so poorly. The atmosphere was lacking a bit due to the lack of people around (although they tried with decorations and tableware done well). The wait staff were trying to do well but stood around most of the time with nothing to do. So you think they could have noticed how long I was sitting waiting! Annoyingly also a large table near me was ordering off the regular menu! I'd have been happy with a burger and chips for much cheaper than this expensive set course meal (I thought was my only option when I emailed weeks earlier) which was lacking. They then had the nerve to automatically add the service charge to my bill (which was stated on the menu would only be done for groups of 6 or more which I was not)! I was simply too upset at this stage to bother arguing about the matter or requesting to talk to the manager as I just wanted to leave the place. Terrible Christmas lunch experience. So dissapointing. Visited Duke of Wellington on 2016-12-25

Food was lovely. The bar staff had no record of my booking. Despite making it online the day before and receiving confirmation. The waitress was on her own upstairs and was hopelessly overworked - but also not really paying attention. We waited for drinks, ordering, plates to be cleared, the bill... it was a slow process... but if you aren't in a hurry... it's lovely. Visited Duke of Wellington on 2016-12-04

A very good experience from all the staff at The Duke of Wellington dealing with a very large family (grown ups mainly) group. Good advice given about wine choices and food was really nice. Only one small 'downside' item. A family member who was not able to attend this once-in a-lifetime event phoned direct from Chile to talk to the family. was told they were too busy to transfer the call upstairs to the function room , call back tomorrow!!!! With the exception of this a really good experience. Visited Duke of Wellington on 2016-11-19

Great little pub close to the main action on Portobello road in Notting Hill. Plenty of space and nice decor, good young beers on tap and a relaxed chill out atmosphere and very much in the gastro pub type feel.
