We ate at the duke of Wellington on Xmas day. Having lived in the area for a while we have seen this pub go through many changes of management, years of success and decline.
We felt the pub now offers a much warmer atmosphere and features a separate bar area where you can enjoy an ale next to the wood burning fire.
Food and service were both of a very high standard - we couldn't think of another pub in the area that could match this.
Our only gripe is with the mannerism of the manager of the pub. He came across as quite patronising and rude, something you shouldn't have to deal with when spending upwards of £50 a head on Xmas day!
