Square Meal Review of Duke's Brew & Que ?

Black Betty Black and Big Bowser the Beef Wowser are not two indie bands up for the Mercury Prize, but a terrific IPA (the former) and a double burger with American cheese, bacon and fried onions (the latter). The clue’s in the name: this 18th-century pub specialises in own-brew beers and hearty platefuls of BBQ meats – “some of the finest around” thinks one fan. There’s real love for the red stuff here, with free-range pork ribs smoked over hickory and apple-cherry wood, or rib of grass-fed beef from County Armagh infused by the embers of hickory and mesquite. You’ll also find sliders and burgers (including a veggie version), and sides of fried pickles and chilli fries. Beavertown brews provide the lubrication (the aforementioned Betty, Gamma Ray American Pale Ale or Smog Rocket Smoked Porter) along with various craft beers and ciders from the UK and USA. Our verdict? It’s laid-back and good fun.

    bloke does blog :: <Food Review> Duke

    I was up in the Big Smoke again, this time to witness my football team get thumped by the Arsenal 6-1, so as you could imagine I was on a bit of a downer. What could possibly cheer me up? Beer and meat? Hell yeah, that would cheer me up no end! As we were in the Highbury & Islington area we wanted to head somewhere close, so we opted for Duke’s Brew & Que, a stones throw away from Haggerston over ground train stop. I’ve heard postive things about Duke’s, so it’s been on THE list for quite some time...

  1. Hackney is not a place we venture to often, but since discovering Dukes Brew & Que, that may change that. In fact, we have already returned once.

    A bookable, yes, you heard us right, bookable BBQ restaurant. Home to the Beavertown Brewery, so a great range of beer, and some of the best cocktails we’ve had in a long time.

    Dukes have taken over what was previously an old pub, refurbished it and is now serving up ribs, sliders, burgers… You get the gist, with smoking equipment imported from Oklahoma...

  1. I have actually never had beef ribs, I’ve eaten about four hundred Wilbur’s worth of piggy ribs but never beef for some reason. Beef ribs are of course much larger and Duke’s serves you two large ribs in a portion. The ribs are glazed with a dark red sticky rub, it’s like toffee, more sweet than the bbq sauce you normally find on pork ribs. The meat was tender and sweet and still a little pink inside.

    The pork sliders are maybe the best I’ve had in London, the pork is piled high on a little glazed bun. The pork is rich, sweet, and smoky...

  1. After my last food coma at Pitt Cue, as a group we were advised to try Duke's Brew and Que. If you wanted BBQ style food, with pulled pork and other such friends then this was the place to visit. Oh my oh my, what a visit it was.

    So me and my friends, comrades, amigos, acquaintances, accomplices had arranged for a meat and liquor type of evening. By visiting Duke's we were certain to exceed our meat quota and counting calories and dieting never seemed more stupid than when presented with our food...
