Welcome to The Duke's Head

A grand Victorian grade II listed building that has watched over the River Thames in Putney for nearly 150 years. Sitting at the start of the Oxford and Cambridge University Boat Race, she has enjoyed this uniquely British battle of the oars for over a Century.

With bright, riverside views the versatile private hire spaces within the pub are ideal for festive events such as Christmas parties, office drinks,  and family dinners. Whether you’re looking for a venue to host your Christmas party, a corporate meeting or simply gather with friends to enjoy the Putney riverside views, the Dukes Head ticks every box.

Follow us downstairs into the Rowing Club, the social hub of Putney. Live music, DJ’s, and delicious winter street food means this is the only place you want to spend your weekends on the river. Sip one of our signature Duke’s Christmas cocktails, grab a pint from our craft beer selection and warm up by our fireplace.
