I was asked by my friends to come over this pub for a very long time but I'm not so keen in pubs so I always passed. Yesterday I finally gave in and went... Wow, what a lovely place! I had a chicken salad, grilled...More

I went here for drinks with my co-workers and was pleasantly surprised with this little hidden gem of a pub. You're unlikely to just stumble across it because of its location, but it seemed to be quite the hotspot for city workers. They have "Wine...More

This place is the best place ever. My servers Filipe and Timea were amazing. I love coming here just because of them and the atmosphere. Great pub, I wouldn't recommend because I want it all to myself lol.

We stopped in for lunch The food was inexpensive but the quality and taste left quite a bit to be desired. Wish we would have kept walking to find something else.

Nice local pub within walking distance of our hotel. Two meals and two pints for less than 13 pounds was great.

They put the Atletico-Leicester match on the TV with the worst reception and with annoying predictatext sub-titles, which were often inaccurate. I asked if they could delete the sub-titles, but they said they didn't know how - others had asked the same thing previously, they...More

Popped into the Duke twice while staying the weekend in London. It seems to be mostly a local after work hangout, but the staff was very welcoming and made us feel like regulars. My wife and I had few pints on the patio one evening...More

Had lunch here, ordered the Mexican burger which was quite nice, but the chips were re heated and not cooked in the middle. Service was ok. nice pub in general but more could be done about the real ale on offer.

Whether you're here for its dynamic street life, world
class galleries or famed curry houses, you're bound to
be wowed by the uniquely cosmopolitan flavor of
Whitechapel. Long gone are the days when Jack the
Ripper stalked its streets. And despite his mysterious
legacy bringing throngs of curiosity driven tour
groups to its back alleys and otherwise serene garden
squares, these days you're more likely to catch a

We had two meals for £10 so excellent value. Not overpriced London menu so we were very pleased.

The Duke of Somerset prides itself on being a proper traditional pub. With live sport, a big external TV screen and one of the best outside drinking areas in the City. The Duke is a great place to escape the hustle and bustle of the City. If you want great value for money and a warm welcome, then look no further!
