Tick all the boxes for what a great city pub should be and you'll find The Duke. Keeps it simple and does it well. Bar on ground level for a drink, great light filled dining on 1 (excellent steaks and an interesting "parmigiana"local specialty) then a cool ooftop bar for the suits and skirts, or the late crowd. Pulls no punches and doesn't pretend to be too fancy. I wish there were more pubs like this one. Check it out for whatever reason you can find.

The Duke was a pleasant surprise. We had pre-lunch drinks in the wine room and lunch in the dining area, both of which were professionally handled by friendly and knowledgeable staff. We will be back.

Food wasn’t as nice as usual. prawn-slider rolls were soggy and desert of rhubarb was just weird

We dined early, had a communication breakdown between the bar and the restaurant which was actually closed when we arrived 10 mins early. We had to literally just walk in 20 mins later after suspecting the Bar wasn’t going to let us know when the restaurant was open. Our instincts were correct. It quickly filled up and larger groups and ages from retirees to toddlers. Service was attentive and the food was absolutely fine. We would return.

Great value Thursday night dinner at the Duke. Good steak for $29 including glass of wine. All bottles of wine half price. How do they do it so cheap?
