BAD. the man in the yellow jacket at the entrance was very very rude and did not let me in saying that I wasn't gay! really hurtful to me

Staff are clearly employed for their looks (or age) rather than brain power. Obnoxious and Rude, One in particular cannot speak or understand a word of English. A 'bear' pub with 'twinks' behind the bar ? I don't get it... It took me over 5 minutes to get this twink to understand that I just wanted ONE PINT OF BEER. He had no idea what I was asking for and even suggested I had asked for a pint of vodka ?!?! One bar twink was clearly on drugs given his disappearance down to the toilets and coming up wiping his nose and sudden energetic burst to clear glasses from around the bar... Beer OK. Staff let this pub down.

This has never really been my favorite pub in Soho, but have suffered in silence due to the majority of my circle of friends liking it. I hate it and find the staff for the most part RUDE and OBNOXIOUS. Do not go to this pub unless you like fascists and homophobes. Standing in the corner, minding his own business, my partner was having a good time moving to the music with two blown-up condoms, when the bouncer outside the main door decided it was not acceptable and asked us to leave. We refused asking for a good reason as to what the problem was. None was given, so we demanded to see the manager. Aparentlt the manager was "on a break". After about 10 mins of requesting what the problem was and being threatened with the manager, the bouncer left and we thought that was the end of it. Over an hour and a half later, still minding our own business a member of the bar staff claiming to be the assistant manager came up and said that because of the "trouble" we were causing, we had to leave. Even though there had been no complaints from any other patrons, apparently waving a couple of blown up condoms is an offence. To our abject humiliation, the police were called and we were physically ejected, all because the bouncer did not like a couple of condoms being waved about and the "assistant manager" decided to take the bouncer's word that it was a problem. Never will I go back to thevDuke of Wellington and will advise against anyone going there.

Yes,I agree with last comment.

Pub has gone downhill. Barstaff willing to serve till 10.30 then extremely rude security staff almost physically remove you 10 minutes later!
Not only is this aginst the law,it is extremely rude.
Paying customers,which is what we are after all, should vote with their feet and drink elsewhere.

Not quite sure why this place has so many good reviews, but then I saw how old some the comments are. It's obviously gone downhill a lot since 2008. Although some of the staff are pleasant enough, many arenít, and the attitude of the security staff once the last orders bell is rung is downright offensive. Beer is average at best. Best avoided - there are plenty of good alternatives very close by.
