SquareMeal Review of
No 1 Duke St
This Darwin & Wallace site (No 197 Chiswick Fire Station, No 32 The Old Town) offers good food in a fantastic setting. Tucked away on a side road, it has an appealing rustic vibe with light green and white walls, exposed brick and wicker furniture. All drink bases are covered thanks to wines, beers and cocktails while food-wise, the comprehensive menu includes well-presented and filling sandwiches (we recommend the club: grilled chicken, bacon and avocado on sourdough toast), as well as the likes of lamb rump with crushed celeriac and a sticky cider sauce. Finish up with a beautifully bitter dark chocolate tart, accompanied by a chocolate mousse and puffed rice. The food here is reasonably priced but despite very friendly service, the lunchtime rush was understaffed on our visit. Despite that, No 1 Duke Street’s great location, relaxed atmosphere and good food all make this a solid choice for casual dining.
