Mulled wine, mistletoe and memorable food

Now that autumn has officially arrived, be the smug one this year and get your festive party date in the diary to celebrate with friends.

The ‘C’ word is already being thrown around and supermarkets have their festive aisle in place, filled with selection boxes and mammoth jars of peanuts,… and we’re still only in October!

Whilst it’s a bit too early to bulk-buy mince pies, it’s never too early to take charge of the social calendar and book ahead for your festive celebrations, whether with work colleagues, friends or family; and where better to book than here at The Duke of Cambridge.

Mistletoe and winter Pimms will be flowing a ‘plenty from late November. Key ingredients for the perfect festive night at The Duke include our merry staff, festive décor and a unique array of local and international brands including a festive ale, warm ciders, artisan gins and cocktails.
