A sunny day, a cold drink, seating outdoors, and a table nearby with folks playing folk-y music on fiddles and flutes. A glorious day at the Duke's Head!

This place is happily located along the river in Putney between all the crew clubs and the bridge. The pub itself is bright and airy, and they're happy to give you your drinks to sit on their patio or across the path along the river. A bit...more

Yet another Young's Pub in South West London, the Duke's Head is a large traditional pub sitting just back from the Thames on the east side of Putney Bridge. Great in the summer when the sun is shining, as it's perfectly legal to take your drink outside (provided it's plastic of course) and lean against the embankment to the river. To be honest, the inside is a bit ropey - the place looks like...more
