The Duke of Wellington is a decent looking pub that is in a fairly quiet area off the busy Kingsland road.
Once inside there is a single room with the bar facing,the room is carpeted and has comfy bench seating and small stools for seating,there is a pool table to the rear left.
There was one real ale on the bar which was Doom Bar,this was a decent enough drink.
There were TVs showing the Euro Football and the background music was crap.
I quite liked this pub as it was very comfortable and the first pub on this crawl to have a pool table and a carpeted floor.

After surveying the selection of standard draught I plumped for a Guinness before having a wander around the pub. It was just after I spotted the pool table and the dartboard that I encountered one of the most drunk blokes I have ever seen in a pub. He was in his forties and he had an unopened bottle of WKD in one hand and he was using the other to try and push himself up from the wall that he had become stuck to. I walked slowly behind him as he bounced his way down the corridor at the back before crashing through the toilet door, never to be seen by my eyes again. I thought that I would make my way back towards the front of the pub to be nearer the exit in case there were more of these things rebounding of the furniture. Thankfully he was the only one in that state and the barmaid was busy mopping up the bar area to erase any evidence of his patronage.

There are plasma screens dotted about the pub and they have Sky and Setanta for all of the football. I thought that for a Sunday afternoon the music was a little loud, but that is just a personal preference.

I ended up finishing my pint in the smoking shelter that is located in the beer garden and it was here that I decided not to be too harsh on this pub as I quite liked it, even with the drunk who should have probably been refused service two hours prior to my visit.

No ale, but nice staff and plenty to do so I would visit again if passing.
