Duke's is about great smoked meat, American style brunch and amazing beers, served in an environment that is relaxed and cool for talking and hanging out. Bringing charm back to Da'Beauvoir Town. Housed in an 18th century pub in the heart of De Beauvoir Town, Duke’s Brew and Que combines Logan Plant’s obsession with authentic American BBQ and great beer. With the focus on the rub and the infusion of wood smoke, the meat is cooked ‘low and slow’ to perfection and paired with big, punchy beers. As the birthplace to Beavertown Brewery, Duke’s also boasts one of the finest craft beer selections in London. The Duke's team of well informed staff bring you considered hospitality and great service in a friendly and vibrant atmosphere. Eat, Drink and bring on the good times!
We serve traditional deep-south, American style Barbecue using imported American wood smokers. We smoke our meats low and slow creating rich, tender, authentic ribs and pulled pork. Our smoking methods are mostly derived from Central Texas, these centre around spicy rubs and wood smoking and aiming to create ribs with a bit of bite rather than those that fall apart at first touch. There are many ways to circumvent the barbecue process but we stick to the old-school rules. We don’t water-bath our meat before smoking it and we don’t inject brine or water to hydrate our ribs – that means we smoke for longer to tenderise, and use our rubs and glaze to contain the meats’ natural moisture. We don’t re-hydrate our pulled pork with water and vinegar and we don’t use any other chemicals to replicate the appearance of a smoke ring.
Nestled in the trendy but quiet De Beauvoir town, Duke’s Brew and Que is a rip-roaring American meat joint where anything sticky and to-pull-apart-with-fingers is on the menu. With their own home-smoked marinade, the ribs here have been described as the best this side of the American Deep South and the burgers are delectably good too. There’s something about the naughtiness of a down and dirty American burger that can’t be matched, but if you’re after something fresher how about a quarter of a crisp iceberg lettuce drenched in ranch? Settle down with a local beer and old tunes spinning in the background, and be transported to the Bayou for just a little bit.
