Happy returns for the Duke of Boots

Tory Historian speculates that today might be the birthday of the great Iron Duke -I wouldn't know.
Pleasingly, part of his legacy is that two of Southampton's best pubs are named in his honour- the Duke of Wellington in Bugle Street and the Wellington Arms in Park Road. His birthday or not, it is always a pleasant experience to visit either hostelry as the beer in both in terms of choice and condition, is always excellent, the clientele convivial.
