5 reviews of The Duke Of Wellington in English
I first visited the duke in 1987, when it was run by Malcom Hardy and family. It was a brilliant pub. 20 years later went back, and nothing has changed but for the beer. Erdinger which is the reason that i go and the live music. It is my haven where i relax and write. a brilliant pub and my favourite watering hole is Shoreham town. update.
the duke of welly still brilliant pub. Erdinger still fab. live music fantastic.
as for food, apart from barbecues, they have never served food there ever. The only competiton is the bridge inn.
Update my favourite haunt
recently ran out of Erdinger and Budvar for One whole week. Not a way to run a business, as its the reason most people go to the duke, the beer, the beer, the beer you get my point. So their 5 star rating gets knocked down to a four star review.still a brilliant pub, but AVOID Friday Between 5pm and 7pm, that is when the strangers arrive, and send the regulars out of our sanctuary, looking for another pub.
Although situated on the main A259 sea road, it is surprisingly quiet out the back. Very nice.
One of three pubs owned by the Dark Star Brewery company, (owners of the Evening Star pub in Brighton) this is a small piece of real-ale heaven, and the pretty historic centre of Shoreham is only five minutes' walk away.
Originally built in the 1920s, the interior has been stripped back and redecorated in a clean, modern style, though if I'm honest it's a little too stripped-back for my liking, and lacking in atmosphere when it is quiet. There's a sheltered smoking terrace and small beer garden at the rear.
But the number of photographs and other momentos on the bar hint at a loyal and active local group of regulars: and the pub is a real stalwart on the local live music scene, with a stage area and piano, and is usually packed for such events. And the locals and staff are indeed very friendly - but be warned: there are some keen Brighton & Hove Albion FC fans among them, so be careful if you talk about soccer!
The beer range is, of course, the main draw, and features Dark Stars' own brews, such as Hophead, Dark Star Porter, the heavy Winter Solstice, Festival Ale and regular guest ales: examples have included the delicious, golden and hoppy Amarillo from the Crouch End Brewery.
Overall, a good watering hole. Making the interior a bit more cosy would add another star.
Owned by the Dark Star brewery, this pub is ten minutes’ walk from the station and the centre of Shoreham.
It’s being refurbished by the Dark Star Brewery Company, and still feels a bit ‘new’ inside. But what you come here for is the fabulous range of real ales - both their own impressive range, and an interesting choice of guest ales. The staff are dedicated to their beer, which is well-kept, and service is exemplary (especially if you express interest in the ales).
Pay them a visit if you are in the area.
