The Duke of Hamilton, a historically renowned pub and former stomping ground of actors such as Richard Burton, Peter O'Toole and Oliver Reed, is due to reopen under new management. After a recent refurbishment, the classic British boozer and Jazz Club will feature all-new decor, food and drink, as well as regular jazz nights.
The pub has been restored by Hampstead-born brothers Ben and Ed Robson, with partner Adam Gostyn and investors, including Depeche Mode's Andy Fletcher. It will feature cosy, comfortable furnishings synonymous of classic British boozers as well as two alfresco dining areas. Food offerings are inherently British, with Sunday roasts, classic brunches and tasty bar snacks, such as boneless chicken wings, all at the forefront. The drinks menu includes craft ales, beers and the special Duke of Hamilton brew, alongside a strong wine list, selection of spirits and homemade soda.
The historic jazz club will also have a makeover, and continue to support local artists with its regular live shows held alongside recordings, rehearsals, workshops and event launches. There will also be regular drinks events in the pub, including wine and whisky tastings.
