Some pubs require tactics. Bar positioning. Table grabbing. What to order, and what not to order. The Duke of Richmond in Dalston is one of these. Although you can have a full slap-up meal in the dining room, we think it’s best used as a beer and burger place - because it’s extremely good at both. The more casual dishes, from a bernaise loaded burger to a crab and chip butty, are ideal boozing snacks and can also be ordered to their outside terrace.
