Dukes, for comfort and style

At Dukes Cafe Bar & Grill we like to think we’re creating our own history after more than ten years at the top of the Avenues social scene.

But we recognised the roots of the local area when we named our new venue back in 2002 and we retain that connection.

Clumber Street, Thoresby Street, Welbeck Street and the others across the road from us are known as The Dukeries, forever associated with comfort and style, and that’s what Dukes is all about.

Before we moved in, the building was a car showroom. The previous occupants actually left one behind, so our first sale was a car rather than a cappuccino!

From day one we built a reputation for high-class food and drink coupled with stylish surroundings and our friendly, efficient team.

A warm welcome starts with our door staff and extends throughout the Dukes experience. We’re really pleased to see you, and we’ll do everything we can to look after you because we want you to have a great time and come again.

Over the years we’ve tweaked a few things, brightened up the bar, modified the menu, dabbled with the décor. But in autumn 2013 Dukes embarked on a major transformation to create a complete new look – a retro feel with a renewed commitment to old-fashioned service with a smile.

Our menus are a mixture of the traditional and the modern and our drinks a selection of the best brands from around the world. Our new ideas include entertainment in the laid-back, acoustic style and the thread running through everything is quality.

Our website will give you a good idea of what we have to offer. If you want to know more please call us on 01482 343903 and we’ll do all we can to help.
