Tick all the boxes for what a great city pub should be and you'll find The Duke. Keeps it simple and does it well. Bar on ground level for a drink, great light filled dining on 1 (excellent steaks and an interesting "parmigiana"local specialty) then a cool ooftop bar for the suits and skirts, or the late crowd. Pulls no punches and doesn't pretend to be too fancy. I wish there were more pubs like this one. Check it out for whatever reason you can find.

The Duke was a pleasant surprise. We had pre-lunch drinks in the wine room and lunch in the dining area, both of which were professionally handled by friendly and knowledgeable staff. We will be back.

The food was served lukewarm, it wasn't busy at the time so not really sure why we couldn't get served a hot parma

Came here on new year's eve for a quick bite before the fireworks. I booked a table in the wine room and was given a beautiful roomy booth for the two of us. The wine room was bar service, so if you'd like to have a proper meal with table service, make sure you select the dining hall when you book. The wine room is great for pre-drinks before another event. You'll find your usual pub options on the food menu here. We ordered the salt and pepper calamari to nibble on first, but found the calamari to be a bit too salty. I ordered the duchess parma while my partner had the fish and chips. The parma was not bad though a little dry - probably because it was a smaller portion compared to the duke parma. My partner thought the batter on the fish wasn't light enough. Overall a beautiful place, best for a drink or two.
