The current owner is Bertie Richardson-Burton who bought the place on the last day of June 2014. Apart from a few coats of paint and some new tables, the Duke is still a proper pub, beer, chats, snacks and sports.
In September 2015, Bertie gained a wife and the pub a landlady aka Victoria. The feminine touch was born and now at the Duke expect to find flowers, displays and all sorts of visual loveliness.
