The Duke of Wellington

146 Flinders Street
VIC 3011

We visited The Duke of Wellington early on a Saturday evening before heading to catch some footy at the 'G. It was busy downstairs, but up on the first floor where we'd booked a table it was less packed, the decor was more modern and chic too.

We ordered some drinks and soon after picked out our meals from the shortish menu. Bruce went for the $25 Steak and Wine deal, with parsley butter, chips and salad. Apart from a little gristle he seemed to enjoy it.

The better half loved her salmon fillet with minted chat potatoes with asparagus and beurre blanc. The fish wasn't too strongly flavoured and the plate was soon clean!

I had the fish and chips with minted peas. The fish was coated with a perfect crisp batter, which unfortunately was a little soggy underneath where it had been placed on the mushy peas. I'm not a fan of the wire basket for chips and the fries themselves were made from unpeeled potatoes, so looked a little grey, but tasted tasted OK.

The service was friendly, but it did seem to take quite a while for our food to arrive. With 4 drinks the bill came to just over $110. The Duke is a fair choice for a pub meal at this end of the City.
