Duke wins cask marque

The Duke of Wellington has been awarded the coveted ‘Cask marque’ in recognition of the quality of its beers.

A cask marque is only given to pubs which pass rigorous standards for the way in which their beers are kept. Pubs then get rechecked twice a year without any prior notice. The assessor is looking for beers which deserve top marks for temperature, aroma, appearance and taste

The Duke normally has a choice of three real ales on hand pump.
