Squaremeal 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.

Got beef?

Editor's pick A lifetime of meat-free Mondays won’t undo your carbon footprint after a meal at Duke’s. My friend reported a case of the meat sweats so bad that towelling in the workplace was involved the following day. Everyone raves about the ‘mini buns of love’ (which tickled my fancy first-time round) but they play second fiddle to the beef ribs; all 17inches of them. You half expect to find Man Vs Food’s Alan Richman collapsed within eyeshot, waving a gnawed bone like a white flag. Certainly the first time...

If you like BBQ and beer then this place is defiantly for you. The food was good, I had the beef ribs, really tasty. Beavertown Brewery also operate out of here, there beer is really good, I went for the smog rocket which is a smoked porter, really went well with the beef ribs. Service was super friendly, the guy who served us was very knowledgeable about the food and drink, really nice to talk to. I'd highly recommend this place, even if it's just for a drink. If you fancy going here I'd book...

This place is a little out of the way but well worth the trip if you are in serious need of American BBQ smoked ribs…especially if you know what those ribs should taste like and particularly if you are hungry. Yes I'd recommend being hungry for that one. We were seated pretty quickly (quite a few people were hanging in the “bar” area waiting for a table to come free) and the menu was offered promptly. Drinks were good, service was friendly and personable (doesn't happen that often in London, right...

    Life of Shayan - My Blog :: A meaty occasion at Duke's Brew and Que

    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...

    #FatInside :: #FatInside: Dukes Brew and Que, Haggerston

    A stone’s throw away from Hoxton, you'll find a modest converted boozer that offers Southern American food with a range of craft beers. Dukes has a reputation for their Barbecue food, offering some of the best in London but they also offer a brunch on weekend mornings from 11am – 3pm. We decided to visit late on Sunday morning to try the American brunch.
