Working hard to maintain Anglo-Iberian relations, this large Victorian pub combines the charms of a traditional tavern with a menu of Spanish favourites (and a few British interlopers for good measure). It’s a grandly proportioned, unreconstructed sort of place, complete with chandeliers and a spectacular cherub-adorned skylight in the restaurant – plus a sought-after garden overlooking Acton Green Common. Regularly changing real ales keep company with sherries and wines, and the menu follows suit – moving from salt-cod fritters, ham croquetas, Galician fish stew and paella to Anglophile favourites such as dressed crab, chicken pie or fish and chips. To finish, desserts are a populist but eclectic bunch taking in sticky toffee pudding as well as dulce de leche ice cream. Service is ‘Mediterranean paced’, making the Duke ideal for ‘a graze and a catch-up’.
