The Duke’s Head

The Duke’s Head is a public house & restaurant located in the pretty village of Somerleyton on the Suffolk/Norfolk border. Run by Tara Smyth & James Santillo since March 2018, The Duke’s focusses on good food & great hospitality alongside well-kept beers & a straightforward wine & spirits list. There is dog-friendly bar with a woodburner & board games, a seperate restaurant with wrap-around windows & a large beer garden with views across the fields.

You might say we’re the best pub in Somerleyton…

“Our menus are designed not only to be delicious & enjoyable but to subtly show you a time & place, we want you to not only be fulfilled but have a sense of place. This is why we believe the sourcing of ingredients is so important; we want you to be able to taste the dedication, love & quality of our purveyors, but also the time of year. Our menus may at times seem repetitive, with little or no fanfare & frivolity on the surface but dig deeper & you will access the reasons why & understand the building blocks of not only our menus but of us.”
