If you would like to host an event at The Duke please don’t hesitate to get in touch – we would love to hear from you.
Our craft beer changes every regularly, giving you the chance to try a new brew that will suit the season we are in – or supposed to be in! The first run of the year will see you enjoy a lovely dark ale.
The Tunneler is a 4.6% ABV beer with earthy and herby notes from the roasted and chocolate malts bittered with Golding variety hops.
And why is this beer called The Tunneler? Because in one day a mole can create 20 metres of tunnels. Now that is thirsty work.
NOVEMBER & DECEMBER
Our craft beer changes every two months, giving you the chance to try a new brew that will suit the season we are in – or supposed to be in!The run up to Christmas sees us brewing a beer that will warm you from top to toe.
Little Gentleman is a 4.7% beer that is velvety smooth beer with a hint of malty chocolate elegance that makes each sip taste just like a real ale should.
This is the beer to order when you come into our pub from the cold, you unzip your coat and are greeted by one of our team and you need something to lift the chill from your bones.
And why is this beer called Little Gentleman? Because of the velvet waistcoat that the mole in Wind in the Willows wears we think he looks like a Little Gentleman.
We are very happy to welcome Richard and Cathy as the new Managers at The Duke. Cathy and Richard have run several different sites in the past including their own Pub and a Hotel. They alongside their son Darren (The Chef) have lots of experience in the hospitality trade, and are looking forward to making the Duke their own, providing a warm welcome, traditional Pub food, a great Sunday Lunch and well kept ales.
They will also be reviving live music nights once a month so keep an eye on the website and Facebook for upcoming events!
Join us on Thursday 13th of April for the return of Open Mic Night! If you have a talent that should be shared come down to the Duke and shows us what you can do, the stage is open to all. Or if you prefer the safety of the audience seats come and support the local talent and enjoy a great night of entertainment.
Our craft beer changes regularly, giving you the chance to try a new brew that will suit the season we are in. Moving into spring our next Craft ale is a lighter pale ale. Golden Hills is a 4.3% ABV pale ale. Delightfully light golden ale with tropical fruit aromas and crisp zesty flavours.
And why is this beer called Golden Hills? Because golden moles live exclusively underground.
Mowdy Jack is a 4.9% brown ale full of scrumptious Munich maltiness with an enjoyable fruit and spiced tang to finish. This warming ale is perfect for a cold and wet autumn day, best spent by a cosy fire in your local pub!
…..and why Mowdy Jack ? he was a famous 19th century catcher of Moles !
One of our most popular craft Ales is now back on the pump! At 3.9% ABV Jailers Daughter is the perfect session beer for summer. lightly hopped with a dry crisp palate you will definitely be back for more.
Crisp roast potatoes, proper golden Yorkshire puddings, soft and tender meat topped with steaming gravy washed down with a glass (or a bottle) of your chosen wine or beer – that is surely what Sundays were made for! We have three roasts on every Sunday, with a selection of starters and desserts for those that have room for more than one course!

May – June
Our craft beer changes every two months, giving you the chance to try a new brew that will suit the season we are in. Moving into summer our next Craft ale is Six Fingers.
At 4.1% ABV Six fingers is a wheaty trappist style brew. Floral, and fruity with a cheeky spicy kick this ale is perfect for enjoying with friends on a warm summers evening.
And why 6 fingers ? because Moles have polydactyl forepaws; each has an extra thumb (also known as a prepollex) next to the regular thumb! Also proving that you learn something new every day !!
