 The Duke William

The Duke William is an established Victorian Public House which has served the potteries Town of Burslem for the last 130 years. It was mentioned in the writings of Arnold Bennett in a number of his publications. The ground floor holds a large lounge bar spanning two main rooms and a large public bar. The first floor has been converted into a 48 seat restaurant which provides good traditional and specislist foods all individually prepared. The second floor has been converted into a meeting room/conference area.

The atmosphere is traditional, friendly and very relaxed in an historic, family-run pub in the heart of the Potteries Mother Town, the Duke William has become a popular haunt for drinkers and diners since reopening in early 2010 following an extensive refurbishment. The interior has been lovingly and carefully restored to its former glory and now includes a restaurant to add to the character. Original features like stained glass and oak flooring have been preserved, and the traditional, warm and friendly atmosphere of the venue has been recaptured. There is parking outside in the on-street carpark across from the main entrance.
