The Duke at Bratton is a traditional country pub that dates back to the 18th Century. Formerly 3 cottages, it was, at some unknown date, converted into a public house with outside tea rooms and was named The Duke William. At some point the William was dropped and quite simply it is known as The Duke.
You will find The Duke in the beautiful countryside village of Bratton, just a few miles out of Westbury and nestled below the famous White Horse on Westbury Plains , The Duke is the ideal start and end point for a walk or for those more energetic souls – a hike!
We keep an excellent selection of hand pull ales, superb range of local ciders and an extensive wine list that will satisfy all pockets and tastes. And you can enjoy your chosen ‘poison’ in our beer gardens (we have more than one!) where we welcome your four legged friends as well!
Although it is not just our drink offer, our beautiful building or the stunning views that guests come to The Duke for… our food is earning The Duke a well deserved reputation for being a great food pub as well.
There were 3 decent real ales to choose from and very well kept! We had a mixture of foods which included a couple of full racks of ribs. My friend Jerry is a trained chef and said, "This is the best ribs I have tasted". There were ribs included and on my Sharing Platter for two (which I had as a main) I have to agree with Jerry, but the Chicken was superb and onion rings were to perfection and yummy chips, not to mention the rest! We met the new landlords and they were very nice people. Bratton is very lucky to have The Duke.
Having returned to The Duke they have changed the menu. Apparently they will be adding new food to this soon which I'm really looking forward too. This visit was a lunchtime on a Tuesday. The restaurant was quite busy but we managed to get a table. I opted for the new 'Duke Burger'.... When it arrived I was gob smacked. Definately the best burger I've had out. Was quite a monster, I couldn't quite eat the stack of onion rings on the top. Next time I will not be beaten. The others in our party had the fabulous fish & chips and steaks... Of which they all loved. Another fab meal, great prices. Will be back soon
