The Duke of Wellington pub in Cowbridge has today reopened after a programme of major refurbishment.
Built in the 15th century, the Duke is one of the oldest buildings in Cowbridge and the pub’s original features, including exposed brickwork and feature open fires, have been retained in the refurbishment. The result is a quality pub with a traditional feel, yet with some contemporary design touches.
The pub’s manager, Jon Marshall said: "I think the refurbishment has really made the most of the great building and fantastic location. It’s a complete transformation and I’m delighted with the result."
The pub will open daily at 9am for coffee and cake, with food service hours starting at 11.30am. A new daily changing menu, featuring ingredients sourced from quality British producers, will feature dishes such as a charcuterie sharing board, steak and sea salt burger with smoked Llangloffan cheese, and whole sea bass.
The Duke has also extended its offer on the bar, which, as Jon Marshall explains, is key: "We are still very much a pub. We’ve got five cask ales on the bar, alongside premium lagers and a great range of quality wines and spirits. We’re a place you can come to for everything from a morning coffee, to a pint with friends, to a meal with the family. The refurbishment has created a relaxed, comfortable space that I’m confident new and returning customers will enjoy."
