Husband and wife duo Sam and Georgie Pearman will open gastropub The Double Red Duke in February next year with help from Hawksmoor and PittCue veteran Richard Turner.

The gastropub with rooms, which is located in Oxfordshire near the village of Kelmscott, will become the third venue in Country Creatures’ portfolio, joining The Swan at Ascott-under-Wychwood, and The Chequers in Chipping Norton.

The Double Red Duke is currently undergoing a large refurbishment that includes an extension of the current building to accommodate further hotel bedrooms, a larger dining space and bar, and a garden room. It will have a total of 19 bedrooms when it opens.

The restaurant will have an open grill at the heart of the kitchen with Turner working alongside head chef Richard Sandiford to create a menu of large grilled meats and vegetables. Items will include charcoal grilled tomahawk steak; steak and kidney pudding with oyster and bone marrow gravy; and sticky figgie pudding with clotted cream

There will also be a 14-seater kitchen counter where guests can watch the chefs cook directly over the fire and a 12-cover feasting room.

Leading front of house operations will be general manager Sion Hamilton whose CV includes Ynshir Hall and Adam Handling Restaurant Group.

The Double Red Duke will host a preview of its menu at Carousel London for five days from 8-12 December ahead of the opening in the new year.
