Dine With Us

Eat, drink and be happy

Here at The Duke we've put together a gastropub-style menu that's packed full of dishes we know our regulars want to eat. Our food is simple and delicious, made with local and seasonal ingredients, all washed down with a great selection of craft beer, wine and cocktails.

From our homemade burgers made with the best British beef, to fresh fish, caught in Mersea and delivered to us every day, there's something for everyone at The Duke.
