We are proud to announce that The Duke Tavern is under new management and is closed for a while for some exciting renovations.
Watch this space!!

We are back to level 1 and loving it. We still encourage you to keep your distance and keep sanitising those hands. Most importantly though, please use our QR code on the door to record your visit!

Kicking off for lunch, Duo Coco will set the tone for your weekend! Playing outside on the deck, they will entertain you while you try our new scrummy food!

This place is off the hook! Transformation is just epic! Excellent chef for young and old pallets thanks Ben! And the customer service is top notch thanks to Ryes and Dion! I am sure there is more staff worthy! but that is whom I spoke with! The kids can hang whilst you have a drink! What parent can’t ask for more than this! 🤣Excellent service and great conversations! Lucy you got this! Great vibe and totally a place to be!! 🤟see you again real soon! 😊

This is a favorite of the locals, so you cannot go wrong. There is simple pub food but the drinks are reasonably prices, a wide range of spirits are on offer and the staff are just lovely, specially Lucy. We attended two foot stomping music evenings - Fleetwood Mac and CCR, and they were both special evenings. Strongly recommended for a lovely experience.
