“Work is the curse of the drinking classes.”
If you've not yet visited the Duke , we're partial to a quote or two!
As well as quotes, we like clocks (see the men's loos) but most of all we like Beer!
For instance, most of our cask ales are available from both straight from the cask or from the hand pump affording you the choice of a crisper, more traditional pour (barrel) or a more lively pint which has been agitated coming through the line giving you that lovely creamy head on top (hand pump). We say "most" because our XX Mild is only served straight from the cask- a truly traditional pint which is hugely popular with our locals.
In addition to Greene King's IPA (3.6%) & XX Mild (3%), there are guest ales which change after each barrel allowing keen ale drinkers to try beers from different breweries all over the country
Our draught lagers; Fosters, San Miguel & Kronenbourg offer the lager drinker a great choice
Lastly we also offer Guinness (both regular & extra cold) Aspalls, Camden Pale Ale & Boddingtons
Our draught lager, cider & stout offers a great choice for everyone
One of the best "session" ales you can get.. Chestnut in colour with an ABV of 3.6% it's a perfect choice for a few pints
With mini tasting jugs on hand, it's a great way of finding your perfect ale
Our ales are all available directly from the barrel for that traditional pour or from the hand pump if you prefer a good head on your beer
We offer Guinness in both regular and extra cold.. the difference? 2 degrees!!!!
