SquareMeal Review of
Dukes Cognac & Cigar Garden
Yes, there are hydrangeas & potted shrubs, but ‘garden’ is pushing it somewhat. This attractive, tented &, all importantly, heated space for 20 guests feels more like a hospitality lounge
at an upmarket summer sporting event or a gazebo for smokers at a wedding reception on the lawns of a smart Home Counties pile. For cigar smokers, it’s a civilised setting in which to enjoy Hunters
& Frankau’s finest hand-rolled Cubans from the humidor without resorting to the pavements outside. Puff on a Montecristo No 4 (£21) & savour a glass of Martell Cordon Bleu (£12) from a list
of fine cognacs & armagnacs that includes Baron de Sigonac 1961.
