Dukes London main entrance

A country house in the heart of London, with Green Park and St James’s Park as its back garden, DUKES London’s Victorian exterior evokes a time when artists and writers rubbed shoulders with royalty in fashionable St James’s, London. Upstairs, you’ll find elegant rooms and suites with antique furnishings coupled with the latest technology. Downstairs is home to Great British Restaurant (GBR), serving up seasonal British cuisine, and DUKES Bar, famous worldwide for its martinis and said to be the inspiration for the classic line ‘shaken, not stirred’. 

The Great British Restaurant is an all-day dining experience in a great atmosphere, offering simple dishes cooked brilliantly in true British style. Full English breakfast, a decadent wagyu burger, beetroot salad or the classic fish and chips with a twist – you’ll find them all here.

If you are getting together with friends or relaxing after a meeting, the intimate surroundings of Dukes Bar, along with the world-class bartender team service, provide the ultimate setting for an unforgettable moment. And The Drawing Room or the Cognac and Cigar Garden is the perfect place to finish your evening.

Dukes London guest rooms and suites are classically and elegantly decorated in keeping with the history of the area, with special touches to ensure you have a restful and comfortable night’s sleep, and provide all the amenities the modern traveller would need.
