Duke of Wellington, Belgravia

Duke of Wellington

Duke of ‘Boots’ is a cosy and inviting 19th century pub tucked away behind Sloane Square and the Kings Road. Victoria coach and rail stations are just a stones throw away.

It was built originally as a reading room – popular among 19th century residents who went there to read the morning newspapers - but many locals said they’d rather have liquid refreshment than reading matter and they won the day!

You’ll find plenty of ‘Iron Duke’ memorabilia on the walls and the pub is close to Chelsea Royal Hospital where the duke was laid out before his funeral.

The Duke is a favourite of the widest possible clientele and it is not at all odd to see a variety of clebrities hiding from the attentions of central London.

The pub has an open fire in winter and is a suntrap in the summer with relaxed eating and drinking on the pavement outside. Customers can enjoy fine cask ales, distinctive international lagers and a good selection of wines.

Sports fans have Sky TV showing football, rugby and cricket with ESPN also available.
