There’s no better public place to watch the Boat Race than from The Duke’s Head’s glass-fronted dining room overlooking the river – although it’s a pretty fine space to while away an hour or two on any day of the year. Hugos & Fionas are as likely to be part of the staff as the clientele here (public-school accents dominate), but the service is prompt & polite. This is a proper pub serving four real ales on tap, & there’s also a decent wine list. There have been reports of a fall in standards in the kitchen, but a recent visit suggests that this is just a blip – such pub grub as haddock & chips & sausages & mash with onion gravy are perfectly fine in an unfussy way.
