the stuff of legends

Arthur Wellesley, born 1769, the original Duke of Wellington, was quite the accidental hero. Born in Ireland to an English Aristocrat, Arty was a dud at Eton - academically uninterested, socially awkward but not bad at violin. Arty wound up in military training where he had a stab at fencing and got saddled with horsemanship classes. Giddyup Arthur! His family's standing and cleverer brothers then landed him in Irish politics.

When King Louis lost his head and the French declared war against the English, the young Duke was forced to swap his violin for a sword and was thrust onto the battlefields of the Netherlands and France. Though defeated, Arthur noticed how crap the British commanders were at their job - no leadership, no strategy, no idea. Even a violin-playing Eton dropout could do a better job. So he went to the sub continent, did some homework and read up on military history. After a few successes he was promoted to Major General and, in 1803, claimed his first major victory against the odds in Assaye in Western India. 

He returned to England with a growing reputation and a growing bank balance, married Kitty, had 2 sons and dabbled in politics quickly becoming the 'go to' guy in Cabinet on anything military. He took the post of Chief Secretary of Ireland on the condition it didn't interfere with his military career. Awkward Arty became the boss of the British Forces in 1809. In 1814, following a victory against the French, Arthur was honoured with the new title of Duke of Wellington. 

In 1815, when news of Napolean's advance on the Belgian capital reached Arthur, he resolved to gather his forces and head to the front line early the next morning. Wellesley famously triumphed in a fierce and bloody battle at Waterloo, defeating Bonaparte once and for all and ensuring the freedom of Europe from the French dictator's clutches and secured Britain's role as a key player in Europe. 

Fashion Forward 

Arty swapped his generals' uniform for plain dark clothes when on the battlefield to fool his would-be assassins. Good thinking Arty… the first camouflage! 

Not one to follow trends, in a time when men wearing long hair, pigtails and powdered wigs were all over instagram - our Duke got a short back and sides. "I find it much easier to maintain on the battlefield. No more long locks matted with blood and brain matter. I just rinse, give it a quick towel dry and I'm ready for war" he said as he reached for his GHD. 

Legend with the ladies. 

The 'Iron Duke', as he became known, was quite a legendary playboy. He and wife Kitty had little in common when he returned from securing freedom for the empire, so cashing in on his Bieber-like popularity, the less than handsome Duke lit up Tinder as he swiped left all over Paris and London. 

Waterloo - not just a Eurovision winner!!

Europe was free from Bonaparte's planned oppression but victory was bittersweet for the sensitive Duke with many lives lost in the bloody battle. His SNAG behaviour is evidenced in a youtube video capturing the Duke in tears as he read the list of dead following the battle at Waterloo. He would always avoid unnecessary bloodshed wherever possible and was upset by the sight of battle carnage. 

The Duke of Wellington was; a high school dropout, a legend with the ladies, a great leader, a brave soldier, an innovator, a brilliant military strategist and had little time for politicians …what a legend!

the legendary Duke Hotel

Starting life in 1876 - some 24 years after the death of the hotel’s namesake and 60 years after the Duke’s famous Battle of Waterloo - the humble, timber, two-story structure on the corner of Portland Place and Regent Street, New Lambton opened it’s doors as a public drinking house. “The Duke Of Wellington” under licensee Mr David Jones Esquire (and many more licensees henceforth) was the cornerstone of the thriving local mining community.

It was the place where local people would gather to celebrate milestones, where mates would meet to share a cleansing ale after a long day in the pit and solve the problems of the world. The building may have burnt down at the turn of the century and had several architectural incarnations since, but "the legendary Duke Hotel” is still a vital hub of the New Lambton community. 
Today’s Duke of Wellington Hotel is legendary for many reasons; great food at affordable prices; friendly service; a brilliant atmosphere; and (as the barrister from "The Castle" would say) the vibe! It’s hard to describe - but there is a vibe you get when you walk in to the Duke. It matters not if you’re a regular or visiting for the first time - you’ll feel welcome. You’re amongst friends you’re yet to meet! 

Whether you’re celebrating the end of a tough week, or a milestone birthday, having a quick drink and a snack, a champagne with the girls, a romantic dinner, drowning your sorrows after your teams loss, or settling in for a punt with your mates - you’ll find the legendary Duke Hotel is just right! It’s more than just a building… it' like a smile and hug after a bad day, a high five and a pat on the back, a shoulder to cry on, a friend to make you laugh, a place you can dance like no one is watching! 

It’s evident that the people running the pub are invested - in more ways than one. Legends in the hospitality industry, hard working, hands on and passionate - and always willing to lend hand. Whether it’s helping out the local bowlers, supporting families suffering hardship & illness, or getting behind the home teams competing at a national level. Some say the likeness between the Duke and the publican are, well… uncanny!
