Since 1876 the humble, timber, two-story structure on the corner of Portland Place and Regent Street, New Lambton opened its doors as a public drinking house. “The Duke Of Wellington” under licensee Mr David Jones Esquire was the cornerstone of the thriving Newcastle local mining community.
Now, “The legendary Duke Hotel” is a vital hub of the New Lambton community. Today’s Duke of Wellington Hotel is legendary for many reasons; comfortable, clean and convenient Newcastle accommodation; 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. You’ll feel welcome. You’re amongst friends you’re yet to meet! Located only minutes from Energy Australia Stadium are supporters of The Newcastle Jets and The Newcastle Knights. Head into the Duke for a drink before the game or watch it Live on the Big Screen.
The Duke's pub style accommodation is clean, comfortable and located in the heart of New Lambton, Newcastle. We have seven rooms available filled with natural light, fresh decor, and shared bathroom facilities. Single, double and twin rooms available.
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!
The people running the pub are invested - legends in the hospitality industry, hard working, hands-on and passionate – and always willing to lend a 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!
Enjoy the selection at the Duke with all the pub classics like burgers and pizzas. The Duke caters for Vegetarians and has gluten free options available as well as a kids menu.
