Operating independently for 15 years, in 2014 the Duke of Cambridge joined up with Riverford, the Devon farm and vegetable box company. More than just a happy marriage of compatible businesses, the owner of the Duke – Geetie Singh – and the owner of Riverford – Guy Watson – sealed the knot on their own marriage in June 2014.
Apart from having produce supplied by Riverford, little else has changed at the Duke. Its care for ingredients stretches to a strict fish policy, ensuring only UK fish caught through sustainable fishing with minimal discards are used. A big, often buzzing outer room for drinkers leads to a welcoming, bare-bricked dining room, lit by a large skylight. The blackboard menu features seasonal gastropub staples.
