Duke of Wellington Gastro Pub


Right in the path of that savage Wellington northerly, funnelled into total fury by Waterloo Quay, we’re conveniently located for you to duck in for a break from your very own
‘Battle of Waterloo’.

We’re just across the road from the Railway Station and the Bus Terminal, so pop in and see us on your way home, or on your way to work if you’re so inclined.

We’re always happy to see you.

We wanted to let you know what we are doing to manage this situation.

Dear Loyal Troops and Regulars,

We are closely monitoring the global situation with COVID-19 as it continues to unfold. We wanted to reach out to you personally to let you know what we are doing to manage this situation.

The health and safety of our patrons, as well as our staff is our utmost concern, therefore we have put in place the following protocols:

  • Reinforce our already rigorous food safety and personal hygiene standards.
  • Working closely with our delivery partners to ensure hygiene and frequent hand washing.
  • Frequent sanitation of all surfaces and shared items.
  • Monitoring our staff’s health closely and provide the necessary support to ensure everyone’s safety.

Our daily routines and events will proceed as normal and we will update you of any changes to our Tuesday quiz night as we monitor the situation.

We hope that our valued troops and regular patrons will continue to visit us for some well needed respite, before going into battle again!

Your team at the Duke of Wellington


Introducing The Duke

The Duke of Wellington. Victor of the Battle of Waterloo. Wearer of snazzy boots. Namesake of the coolest little capital in the world.

What is less well known about the Duke, is that after a long day on the battlefield, he enjoyed a nice bevvy and a hearty meal, in the company of interesting and beautiful people.

Indeed, just after he splashed up onto the shores of Te Whanga-nui-a-Tara in 1787, having taken a wrong turn at the Cape of Good Hope on his way to India, he was heard to utter, “Forsooth! I could really go for a local brew and a nice pie right now!”*

So to honour the old Duke, on the very spot that he first landed in what would become Wellington**, we’ve created The Duke of Wellington Gastro Pub. We’ll provide an array of lovely, local bevvies and delicious, hearty meals, for you to enjoy, in stylish, warm and welcoming surroundings. You just need to gather a few of your most interesting and beautiful friends and head on down to see us.

*After extensive research, we have found absolutely no proof that any of this occurred. But then again, there’s no proof that it didn’t…
**Again, no actual proof either way…
