A large traditional corner pub, with a relaxed and jovial atmosphere on our Saturday afternoon visit. The pub had a good choice of ales, five in all. I went for the Clouded Minds Luppol, a session Golden Ale which was decent enough. The surprising part of this pub, was the large back room used for various functions and was acting as an overspill on our visit, from the main part of the pub which was becoming increasingly busy.

A typical street corner Victorian London pub which unusually is painted black at ground level including across the pub name making it difficult to discern. A Watney Coombe Reid pub sign remains higher up but nowadays the ale choice has improved considerably. Saturday had Kent Brewery Session Pale plus their Cobnut, Otter Bitter, Sambrook's Wandle and the gorgeous Pentonville Oyster Stout (£4.00). Definitely beer of the day.
The main room has an island bar which has no real bar back with just a glasses shelf with a world globe on top but has at one end an elaborate carved dark wood gantry with a feature clock. Bare boarded, large clear glass windows, chandeliers and ceiling fans.
Very busy on Saturday afternoon, the Arsenal game had recently finished and the rugby on TV was about to start so seating was at a premium. There is another back room with a fine looking skylight but this was full as the room has the rugby on with sound.
A decent pub with a good range of beers and a busy and buzzy feel, I liked it here.

The Duke of Wellington is a typical looking London corner pub that is situated on the busy Balls Pond Road.
Once inside the pub has two separate rooms,the front room is oblong shaped and has a small island bar,the room is bare boarded and the seating bench type to the front with small stools plus some tables and stools,this room was almost empty,the room to the rear had a large screen showing the rugby match and was very busy.
There was a very good choice of real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Trumans Zephyr which went down very well,the other bees noted were Clouded Minds Clout Stout,Hammerton N1 Pale Ale,Redemption Trinity and redemption Pale Ale.
I enjoyed my short stay in this pub.
