Why is Duke of Wellington the best pre-footy pub in Melbourne?

Located just a short stroll from the ‘G, The Duke is the perfect pit-stop between the Melbourne CBD and the ground. Whether you’re coming straight from the office for a Thursday or Friday night game after work, or catching the train into Flinders St Station, our convenient location is the perfect opportunity to stop in and fuel up.

What drinks and meals are featured on the menu?

Melbourne rooftop bar

Think footy feed. Let’s be honest, the food and mid-strength beer you’re getting at the MCG’s food stalls isn’t going to satisfy you like a good hearty pub meal will.

Quench your thirst with our range of beers and ciders on-tap, or perhaps something from our wine or cocktail list. Peckish? Load up on a parma, burger, steak, or more from our food menu.
