About the Pub

Next door to the Lyceum Theatre and named after Sir Arthur Wellesley who was raised to the title Duke of Wellington after defeating Napoleon's Armies at Waterloo in 1815. The pub was originally founded in 1846 near to the site of the English Opera House (also known as the Theatre Royal and the original Lyceum Theatre, and now the Lyceum Tavern) which was destroyed by fire in 1830. The current ornately faced building dates from 1903 and consists of a long narrow split level bar featuring ceiling mouldings in salmon pink with gilded highlights. At the end of the room mirrors set in marble effect surrounds reflect the light from the chandeliers. Upstairs is a large and plush comfortable restaurant with bar, whilst outside there's a large seating area along the Wellington Street frontage. Both levels of the bar have banks of handpumps but not all beers are duplicated and there are usually some interesting offerings in addition to the usual banker brands.

Note that the licence stipulates that alcohol is not available until noon on Sundays.
