WELCOME 2020-11-05T11:27:12+00:00

The Duke of Marlborough is closed until December 2nd in line with government requirements

But usually……

With Saturday breakfasts (fortnightly), lunches, suppers, quizzes and outdoor live music happening, there’s something for everyone at the Duke this Autumn (despite the restrictions).   Tables of up to 6 from mixed households are welcomed.   You will need a facemask for some inside areas, when not eating, but if you sit outside you don’t need a mask at present.

Please check opening hours carefully as they are subject to change at short notice in these challenging times.  Our social media feeds are also a good way to get an update on what’s going on week to week.

Customers have the option of sitting outside in our heated marquees, or you may sit indoors now the weather is getting chillier.  We offer a safe and comfortable experience at the Duke with well spaced tables, table service, staff wearing masks or visors and plenty of sanitiser around for you to use.

Booking is advisable but not essential, 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 freshly cooked menu is being served, with usually 5 or 6 main courses on offer, all cooked to order.  Pizzas are ususally on offer.  The menu features your old favourites plus changing specials each week including steaks, seafood and paella.  There is generally always a vegan option too and we offer gluten free options as standard.

We are planning (seated) events for Halloween and Christmas  although we recognise that certainty on anything is hard to come by these days!

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

LIVE MUSIC IS BACK!
The Frestonians - Saturday December 5th 7.30pm
In the marquee playing 80s and 90s hits from the likes of REM, Nirvana and Oasis.

As we are in Tier 2 the following rules will apply:
- Outdoors - the rule of 6 remains in place
- Indoors - single household tables only

You also have to purchase a meal alongside any alcohol sold.

Otherwise all previous COVID safety rules will continue to apply - bring your mask for communal areas and continue respecting social distancing rules. This also means no getting up and dancing unfortunately!

Please book by messaging us on FB or email: enquiries@thedukeofmarlborough.com.

Heaters and firepits will be going but remember it's turned pretty chilly at night so wrap up warm!

It looks like we will be able to welcome you back next week as planned. LOTS planned so pay attention! Fingers crossed Suffolk is in the lowest tier in tomorrow's announcement but even if we get Tier 2 the rule of 6 (mixed households) will apply for outside in our heated marquees!

QUIZ NIGHT has been moved to Friday - get up a team and join us for a warming bowl of stew beforehand, or during the interval.

Then pop back for BREAKFAST CLUB Saturday 5th from 8.30am.

We have outdoor LIVE MUSIC on Saturday from The Frestonians from 7.30pm and ROAST lunches return on Sundays.

Something there for absolutely everyone so get booking!

Hello everyone.

As things currently stand, we hope and expect to be reopening on 4th December. After Happy Hour from 6pm we will move the 'first Wednesday' quiz to a BIG FAT FRIDAY QUIZ on the 4th. We expect to be busy so feel free to secure your table now (up to 6 people) by emailing enquires@thedukeofmarlborough.com.

We are also taking bookings for our Christmas meals. It MAY not happen of course, but why not book yourselves in anyway and have something to look forward to! No deposits will be taken until much nearer the time. Menu now available. Drop us a line on the email address above or DM us here.

FINGERS CROSSED we can welcome you back soon! 🤞🤞🤞
