Real Ales

real ales Here at the Duke we like Ales, whether they be light or dark, bitter or pale ales, porters or mild. Our cellar is often packed with lots of different types of beers, with the choice often changing with the seasons, or because we took a fancy to something new and interesting.

As a true Freehouse we are lucky enough to have flexibility, and we are passionate about finding and promoting less unknown and unusual craft beers and speciality breweries.

Keep an eye on our cellar, we are looking forward to trying out and sharing with everyone the ales available across the South West and Wales.
