This is the closest you can get to a traditional Pub in the GTA. Great selection of beers on tap and always good sports on the TV. The food can be inconsistent but the service is always good and the atmosphere fun. Great location downtown Markham.

When I visit my parents every summer we always go for some nice pub grub at the duchess. We have been going for over 30 years and I think the decor hasn't changed since 30 years before that. So it could use a facelift in a big way but if you are just looking for something comfortable with reasonably priced... More

Comfortable clean pub with very good food and daily specials. London Pride on tap as well as a couple of craft beers. Enjoyed the wraps along with the English size chips. Service was good and friendly. Visit about once a month. Washroom are in the basement.

I come here often for wings. They have really tasty wings and I like how they cook them well done. They also serve a wicked dill dip with them. The fries are good I wouldn't call them tired old fries lol, fries are just that, fries. They aren't gonna change the world so I don't know what that guy was... More

Went in for dinner and couldn't get out of there fast enough. English style pub that has definitely seen its day but we rarely judge a place by its age. I'm not sure which was worse, the gnats getting into our wine, swatting away flies constantly, the piece of food stuck in my "clean" fork, the tasteless steak & mushroom... More

Ate on the patio for an early dinner, as we had heard that they had music. Having been there before over the years, my expectations of the food were not high, but I've enjoyed the fun atmosphere and music on these visits. Sadly, not so this time. Musicians were not wonderful, they were ignored by almost all. We tried to... More

Longtime pub in Markham has a wide selection of beer and decent food. Summer seating outdoors is popular and fairly busy. Service is typically fairly quick and attentive until they get really busy. Recommended.
