The Duke of Wellington

Squaremeal Review of The Duke of Wellington ?

A pub with considerable poise, The Duke of Wellington is a flexible – if slightly ambiguous – destination: the Bellinis flow as freely as the London Pride, the bright upstairs dining room is as comfortable as the bar, and the daily changing menu encompasses everything from steak-frites to whole roast plaice with olive croquettes, cauliflower purée, samphire and bois boudran sauce. Having ploughed the same furrow since its late-noughties makeover, it has a self-assurance that can occasionally manifest itself as a grudging welcome, but on summer evenings, when the well-used candles are lit and the outdoor tables are in demand, The Duke has a bewitching quality that’s thin on the ground closer to Marylebone central. Three-course set lunches of, say, asparagus velouté, haloumi salad with Israeli couscous and rhubarb fool are a draw during the day.

The Duke W1 is widely regarded as one of Marylebone’s best-kept secrets. The bar and upstairs dining room are intimate, if a little cramped, with a cosy and friendly atmosphere. Portions are generous, including a cracking ‘Ginger Pig’ rib-eye steak.

I happen to be a big fan of gastro-pubs and was pleasantly surprised when I discovered one in my neighbourhood. I've had dinner and lunch on both floors at the Duke and I have yet to be displeased with any of the dishes tried. The fish dishes are very well prepared, using fresh ingredients, but they have also served me some excellent meat dishes. If you're looking for something a bit buzzy and between gastro-pub and pub, I strongly recommend this for a laid back week night, or for a Sunday roast....
