I’ve never been made to feel more unwelcome at a pub than I was at the Duke. A few gentleman friends and I were in there on a Saturday night at around 7ish for a couple of drinks. There was some laughing and some joking amongst us but nothing particularly rambunctious. All was going rather swimmingly until about 45 minutes... More

Visited on 10 September to see Juan Martin (top Flamenco guitarist). The venue was very small and intimate, with candles on every table and dotted around the room. Lovely ambience. Music was amazing. Will definitely keep an eye out and return.

We stopped here with our dog on a wet lunchtime, had a welcoming drink. Food menu look good but not huge, the food we saw looked very appetising although we did not eat! Owners dogs in pub very well behaved. Papers available to read throughout pub.

After a lovely meal in the Whitstable Oyster Co, our large party broke up and some of us gravitated to the Duke of Cumberland - the collection of old radios drew the ex-pirates from Radio Essex in the 60's in and the ambience was good. We left when it started getting noisy

I can't speak from a restaurant or hotel point of view (yet!) but I visit Whitstable a fair amount and always make sure I visit the Duke. Great value for drinks, very fast service and the atmosphere is brilliant. They have live bands every week and everyone is always having a good time, no sense of hostility from over drunk... More

The bar staff are nice and the bands are generally good however the owners are horrible, vile people. They shouldn't be allowed near the public, their manners are awful and their language is atrocious. Will never step foot in there again and advise everyone else to do the same.

Went in for a post shopping drink on a weekday evening. Very, very friendly bar staff, with a great knowledge of the local brews. Lots of customers and a very nice vibe. Looks to be the place to be on a weekend night.
