The proprietors of the Duchy Arms are both long-standing Kennington residents who are passionate about creating a great restaurant and pub in their local area. They took over the Duchy Arms in 2014 with the ambition of re-defining it as a food-led pub which welcomes locals and those from further afield. The refurbishment has been done in such a way to allow The Duchy Arms to be both very serious about the food but also to remain a real pub with  traditional ales, delicious bar snacks and a warm welcome.
