Standing majestically on the corner of Goldhawk Road and Stamford Brook Road is where you'll find the Duchess of Cambridge. No, I don't mean the actual Duchess of course, but her recently refurbished pub-namesake.
Thanks to its new managers, Simon and Ruth, the once deserted pub has quickly started to attract many a local into its realm and now has a buzzing atmosphere to it, especially of a weekend. There are a huge selection of drinks on offer, and by huge I mean a choice of 15 real ales, 9 ciders, 10 changing draft taps, 60 bottled world beers, 96 whiskeys, 30 tequilas, an extensive (and good value) wine list and more.
There are plenty of options when it comes to food too, including a range of pub classics and some tasty bar snacks – such as mushy pea fritters - if you don't want a full meal. Outside you'll find a decked seating area to chill out in, where there is often a barbeque fired-up on a balmy evening, and on a wintery night a welcoming open fire is waiting to warm you as you relax inside on a comfy sofa.
Rarely a week goes by without some sort of event; whether it's a quiz night, steak night, a live sports event on the flat screen or a themed party night, there's always something going on at The Duchess of Cambridge, and if you fancy holding a private party yourself, there is a big function room upstairs for hire. Find out more about this, and the pub itself by visiting their website. Located at 320 Goldhawk Road, the pub is very near to Stamford Brook (District Line) tube station, and the 94 bus stops right outside, too, which takes you to either Shepherd's Bush or Chiswick.
