About The Duke

The Duke’s deed and title are well-deserved.This classic Aussie pub has stood on the corner of Barrack and Macquarie Street in central Hobart since 1846, and has managed to retain its old school charm to this day, even though it’s now a bar and restaurant with modern trappings enough to make it a popular CBD destination for fine pub food and drink. The Duke’s lunch and dinner menus are full of solid proclamations on state of the art eating, from burgers and pizzas to some stelar modern Australian mains. With live music on the schedule and a great space for hosting private functions, The Duke is the holistic Hobart pub you’ve been looking for.

Fantastic food and friendly staff in a comfortable surrounding. Will definitely be back again. The roast chicken with sweet potato mash and asparagus was fantastic

It was our first experience at the Duke and we'll be back ! Great music , amazing staff and great pub food. A big plus for me , as a mature woman is that I would feel comfortable to go there on my own , and I can't say that about many pubs.

We always have a lovely time at The Duke. Food is delicious, music is the best and most importantly the staff are so friendly and helpful :) . There is a young guy who sings on Thursday evenings, his voice is amazing, the best voice that I have heard in a long time. Well worth a visit.

We arrived on time but waited just over a hour for our meal, possibly because of steaks needing to be well done. I can cook steaks to be well done ie not pink inside, without charring the outside. My meal was mediocre, I also like my food hot and served on a hot plate. I chose the fish and the dish was lacking in a sauce choice. I do not put lemon juice on fish. My family who are vegans enjoyed their meals, they were the reason we chose the Duke after looking at the menu. I would not rush back. Disappointed.

Excellent friendly service, fantastic meals which catered for all of our dietary requirements. Good music and seating arranged so that the venue was not over-crowded. One of the best nights out we have had as a family for a long time. Will return!

The staff were not friendly. We had my 2 year old with us and were told there were no high chairs, though upon going to the restroom saw several high chairs and booster seats - obviously the staff member just didn't feel like going and getting one. The food was served quickly, but was not well done. Two of us had the mushroom arancini with salad - the mushroom balls were lovely, but the salad was a just handful of baby spinach and rocket with no dressing or filing. The other person had an open ham and cheese toastie and it was barely cooked, the bread wasn't even crispy, it was a sandwich with the same sad excuse for salad on the side. Overall it was very disappointing.
