Good mix of locals and visitors. Most homely of pubs in Albert Road area. Shame there was no real cider available otherwise it would have gotten higher mark still

Good beer , good atmosphere and good jukebox. Summer lightning was my choice and served well.

Proper locals pub for those disillusioned by modern chain pubs, pleasant atmosphere and a reasonable pint, will add it to my list of pubs to visit on the Albert Rd run.

Absolutely correct to say that this place is somewhat time-warped; 1970s at best. However, there are many aspects to an older-style boozer that bring to it much credit; a warm welcome, a "proper" landlady, a real local feel to it. Personally I found these traits to be rather refreshing, in a world of branding and management who create a comfortable but so often sterile environment according to a corporately-engineered template. The Duke resembles a community centre as much as it does traditional beerhouse, and that's fine by me.

Granted, cask ale selection and quality - my usual talismans in passing judgment on pubs - were limited; I had a decidedly average Doom Bar experience on my quick whistle-stop visit in January. That said, its other charms would mean I wouldn't rule out popping in for a quick snifter if back in the area again.

Great pub if you want to go back to the 60s. Great jukebox and 3 decent ales.
Lovely landlady.
