Just up the hill from the Bulls Head and with a seemingly wider choice of real ale. Another solidly built Victorian town pub, that doesnít seem to have changed much in 150 years. Mainly Oakham beers available - not what I expected, but nice to find!

In Burlsem town centre, very close to several other real ale pubs, the Duke William stands out with itís mock-tudor style and beautiful interior. 8 cask pumps with at least 4 constantly rotated, usually priced at £3 a pint. Whilst Iíve not tried the food, it looks to be to a very high standard. A small bottle selection in the fridge, as well as Fruli on keg. Great pub with fantastic ales, absolutely full of character.
