The Duke opened in December 2007 – it’s Richmond’s only true gastro pub, just between the High Street (Jigsaw is on the corner if you are looking for us) and Richmond Green. We are conveniently close to Richmond Theatre and the train station - and not far from the rugby at Twickenham either. The Duke offers possibly the best food in Richmond from the kitchen of our Head Chef, Sam, and his talented team. There is a daily changing menu of fresh and seasonal dishes, a lovely dining room and a really beautiful Victorian bar if you want to meet friends for a drink. A great place for lunch and dinner, for a drink, for weekend brunch and fabulous Sunday roasts with the whole family. It’s a little treasure and a great respite from the bustle of Richmond’s town centre.

The service was lovely, the food was distinctly meh. Nothing profoundly wrong, just a bit mediocre. Double-fried chips had a slightly ancient quality. Rigatoni was a tiny portion and just not particularly nice. It was Monday lunchtime so it's probably not representative of a place at its best, but we left disappointed.more
Stopped by here early on a Sunday with my sister and her bf. I loved the old feel of the pub and it was very busy that day. I ordered a bloody Mary, my sister got wine and her bf got a pint. Sunday roast is sort of a big thing in the UK, so of course I ordered a set-up as did everyone else with the beef roast, vegetables and Yorkshire pudding. The food came out pretty quickly after we had...more
Dinner here was nothing short of amazing. Perfect pints, nothing left of the appetizers, and the steak was very good.
Lucky enough to have a brilliant dinner with good friends.more
Brunch here is ok but nothing special.
We had fish and chips, eggs benedict and coffee.
The fish had too much (a bit hardened from overfrying) batter, the eggs benedict was better but nothing to rave about. Coffee was ok, again nothing to seperate the place from the crowd.more
In the neighbourhood so opened the trusty Yelp! App to see what's good, The Duke seemed the most exciting, being touted as almost Gastropub and a healthy four star rating, I figured this place couldn't disappoint.
We were able to get a table at the back of 1pm, a lot of groups in and the bar was busy, so that was lucky!!!
Nothing exciting beer wise, but what was there was v...more
