The Duke of Sussex

The Duke of Sussex is a big old Victorian pub that’s way out west. This means it’s a great in between spot for when your only friends in Kingston are trying to get you to come down to theirs, but you can’t face the tube journey, followed by an overground, and then a couple of buses. It’s not quite as chichi as deepest southwest London, but it’s conveniently close to Chiswick Park tube, and the better than average pub food (with some Spanish twists), and rambling, slightly rural feeling garden, should be enough to keep your snobbiest friends from moaning all afternoon.
