The Duke of Marlborough is open!

With lunches, suppers, afternoon teas, cocktail nights and music afternoons now happening, there’s something for everyone at the Duke this summer.

Please check opening times carefully below as they differ from day to day.  In August we will be closed only on Mondays and Thursdays.

We are participating in the ‘Eat Out to Help Out’ scheme in August – see details of opening times below.    This entitles you to 50% off your bill (up to a maximum of £10 per person and no alcohol is included) when eating out with us on a Tuesday or Wednesday.

Customers are being seated outside or under our marquee over the summer and we will be following the government guidance carefully; your safety and ours is paramount. Please expect one way systems for ordering, table service, lots of signs, and staff behind screens and visors.

Booking is advisable but not mandatory, for both eating and drinking.  It helps if you book, just so we can manage numbers and can stagger arrival times for safety reasons.  Please call the pub on 01473 831283 or email: enquiries@thedukeofmarlborough.com.  Any questions?  Just get in touch, we’ll be happy to help.

A limited but freshly cooked menu is being served, with usually 5 or 6 main courses on offer, all cooked to order.  Pizzas are always on offer.  The menu features your old favourites plus changing specials each week including steaks, sea food and paella.  There is generally always a vegan option too.

We look forward to welcoming you back!
