A great Kentish pub...

Acquired and opened in April 2015 by the team behind Rocksalt Restaurant, The Duke William has long been known as a great Kentish pub loved by the surrounding villages in the area.

Whilst a certain level of refurbishment throughout the main pub and guest room areas was undertaken, our aim has always been to make sure The Duke retains that traditional authenticity that it is known for whilst instilling a new and exciting food and drinks menu built around the best local produce and suppliers the surrounding Countryside and Coastline has to offer. Seasonality is key, which is why all our menus are constantly evolving throughout the year, from beautifully fresh fish and ripe fruit & veg in Summer to slow cooked meats and piping hot pies and hot pots in the Winter.

At the heart of the village...

Community is also of the greatest importance to us and we hope to continue the long standing relationship the pub has with its local patrons through midweek events and food nights to Summer Fetes and Barbecues, complete with fun and games for all the family, whilst creating an atmosphere that attracts people from far and wide.
