Pub overview

The Dukes Head is a rare jewel in Sunninghill, positioned within the community yet only 1 mile from Ascot racecourse. This single room pub is set up ready for a new operator who is passionate about quality, service and community values and are ready to make more of this great opportunity.

This is a community pub with great potential to be positioned as a quality local, by offering a fantastic food offer, first class customer service with operators who have a desire to be part of the community. The pub has some real character, a cracking garden waiting to be exploited and a large car park.

A well equipped pub with 1 main bar, surrounded on two sides by comfortable seating that can be used for both eating and drinking. A fully fitted kitchen, as well as a recently redecorated interior. The outside area, which includes a patio and garden, has potential for so much more, especially in the hot summer we're experiencing this year! The pub also has a large car park.
