The Dog & Duck, Emmbrook, Wokingham.
Re-opened on Wednesday 15th November 2017 following a major refurbishment. Dating from the 1700s, this traditional red brick pub began serving beer in 1851. Brakspear Brewery bought the pub in 1857 and it’s been well-supported by the local community ever since. The pub will continue to be a warm, welcoming and relaxing place to enjoy drinks, lunch and dinner with friends and family.
The refurbishment has given the Dog & Duck a facelift, sensitive to retain and highlight many of its original features, including parquet flooring, natural oak beams, exposed brick walls and large sash windows. Relaxing, warm and cosy, the Bar area has a traditional feel using a palette of warm reds and cosy greens along with contemporary touches and vintage detailing. There’s a wood-burning stove, an old oak-topped bar fronted with reclaimed floorboards and above, copper pendant lights. On the walls, antique prints of the local area and furnishings include old Dutch pews, a long, drinking table and mismatched tables and chairs
Open seven days a week for lunch and dinner and drinks, including Christmas Day. Over the forthcoming season, a festive menu will be available. Well behaved dogs are welcome in the bar area.
