The Dukes

To raise money to refurbish The Dukes to a high standard #TheDukesLB

We did it!

On 7th Apr 2016 we successfully raised £1,000 with 19 supporters in 14 days

The Dukes, formally The Dukes Head, is coming soon and we need your help.

We are transforming the beautiful 260 year old pub into a gastro pub with an A La Carte restaurant, traditional bar menu, real ales, open fire and en suite bedrooms.

The pub was last opened in 2014 as an Indian restaurant and hasn't operated as a business since then. The project has been a labour of love and as we race towards the finishing line we would like to ask you to get involved. 

We need your help to complete our project and renovate your local pub to the high standard we set out to achieve, we need to raise an extra £8000.

We've put togther 8 different EXTRA SPECIAL OFFERS ranging from £10 to £1000 so that you can help as much or as little as you want. 

In exchange for your up front purchases we are offering a range of different services from The Dukes at one-off special offer prices. We hope that one or more of them will be of interest to you. 

We will be using the cash to improve the standard of the renovations and do some extra jobs which otherwise would need to wait until after opening day. 

If you have any questions or suggestions or if you'd like to get involved with the renovation project and you have some skills that we may find useful please get in touch by calling or texting Sarah Smith on 07802 573838. If you're passing and would like to pop in and see me, I will be there most days until we open early in April.
