When we walked in we thought "What a great pub". Little did we know we'd be told off for laughing. None of our group will EVER return. Disappointing. What a rude woman with very little understanding of pub culture.

Great visit to a great traditional pub. Enjoyed our visit and this was enhanced by the super friendly bar man called Matt.

We only called in for a drink on our way elsewhere, but stayed for more. What a gorgeous little 1930s time capsule this is! However did it survive without being 'improved'?Lovely beer, too.

The most striking thing about The Duke is it's unspoilt 1930's interior. Unlike the vast majority of pubs in London it hasn't been heavily modernised and thus retains bags of character. This was my first visit for more than 15 years and the place seemed...More

Super-cute little corner pub with tons of atmosphere and all its original 1930s fixtures and fittings still intact. Food is pretty average but the portions are generous and prices are fair. And I love the dining room with its cosy wooden booths and an open...More

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.
Despite an understandable popularity with students,

I guess it would be fairly easy to get a wheelchair in the main door. As someone else has pointed out, they are double doors. And the staff are really great and helpful. I am sure it will be fine. And you'll love the beer... More
