Legend has it that Glasgow’s Duke Street is the longest in the UK although Aberdeen’s King Street makes a hotly disputed claim to be slightly longer.
The long and the short of it is that today’s Big Deal on a burger and beer for two at The Duchess of Duke Street is sure to go the distance.
Friendly neighbourhood bar
As the sign above the door says, The Duchess of Duke Street was established in 1870 and re-established in 2014.
A warm, friendly and welcoming bar, it is a neighbourhood hangout that brings a touch of gastro pub polish to Dennistoun.
Regular DJs and a weekly pub quiz help keep it buzzy.
Choose your drink
Available seven days a week, noon to 9pm, the offer is for two people to each have a choice of a chunky gourmet burger or hot-dog and a beer or glass of wine at The Duchess.

Guests can choose from a selection of bottled beers, Peroni, Stella, Desperado and Corona, or a glass of house wine.
Additional delicious toppings are available: extra pulled pork will be charged a £2 supplement. Bacon, cheese or a pepper sauce cost and additional £1.50.
