Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Duke's Head

Substantial Thames-side pub, with a noteworthy interior having plenty of interesting features (especially the engraved glass windows and interior glazed panels referencing the former Billiards area, Club Room, etc.). Splendid front room - now the restaurant - and the upstairs 'Wolsey Room', both overlooking the Thames. The main seating area has been opened up at some stage to form an island bar, but one of the dividing screens still remains. As a Young's house, I found Ordinary and Special plus Doom Bar and Wimbledon Windmill spring ale as guests available the two banks of four handpumps on this visit. There is also the Rowing Club bar and patio downstairs (which usually dispenses into plastic glasses for those outside by the river). With its heritage interest complemented by efficient bar staff and well-kept beer, this one is well worth seeking out.

This was much more a pub than I was expecting, I was expecting it to be more of a restaurant and although the rear,river end of the pub is set out as such two thirds remain as a pub and I found it to be pleasant enough with enough features as mentioned by Mr Fastard below to be of interest.Its a Youngs pub so the beers are predictable , but I had a decent pint enough of Hummingbird. I didn't dislike this pub and would happily call in again.

A substantial Victorian riverside pub,operated by Youngs and so tied to Charles Wells ales.The island bar serves different sections and there are many original features such as wood partitions with etched glass and decent sized mirrors,although the decor is modern and there is a flatscreen and pine coloured furniture in the front bar.Towards the rear there is a restaurant overlooking the Thames,while upstairs past the loos there is The Wolsey Room which can be hired for private functions.The pub was rammed with football fans before a match at Craven Cottage and this caused chaos behind the bar,but at quieter times the interior could be very pleasant.There are four handpumps ,with CW Bombardier,Youngs Bitter and London Gold (quite decent) on my trip while there are also some craft keg options such as Dogfish IPA and Meantime Lager.Better than I thought it was going to be after spotting the Youngs insignia,they haven't completely ruined this one.
