The Duke of Marlborough

The Duke of Marlborough is a community owned pub just 10-15mins outside central Ipswich.   Bought in 2017 by a community of over 250 wonderful people,  it is now run by Aaron and April Douglas and their dedicated team of paid staff and community volunteers, from whom you can expect a warm welcome.

The Duke is currently open from Thursday to Sunday serving freshly cooked meals – British classics plus other dishes from around the world – Mexican, Italian, Moroccan and French.   Fresh fish and pasta dishes, stacked burgers and fish n chips, fresh summer salads,  tagines and curries.    We always have vegan options and offer many of our dishes gluten free.   Dishes change on a weekly basis.

We are a real ale pub and usually have two or three cask ales on tap, in addition to our range of keg beers and ciders.    We are family friendly and dog friendly and the valley has many lovely walks you can enjoy from the car park.

Booking is advisable but not essential.  It helps if you book, just so we can manage numbers and can stagger arrival times for reasons.  Please call the pub on 01473 831283 (not always staffed outside opening hrs)  or email: enquiries@thedukeofmarlborough.com.  Any questions?  Just get in touch, we’ll be happy to help.

We look forward to seeing you – your community pub needs your support more than ever!

Now open four days a week, offering a traditional country pub welcome and great food and drink. Kevin and the team look forward to welcoming you!

    After a quick straw poll, we decided to take the food out of the ticket price for the Oktoberfest night so tickets now down to just £12.50. Food will still be on offer on course on the night from our outdoor stall.

    This will gain you entry to help us cover the cost of the live band and get you your first drink!

    Tickets on sale from the pub or if you aren't able to pop in - via the Eventbrite link:
