Great location for visiting Blenheim Palace. Very friendly and helpful staff. Lots of choice for evening meal and breakfast. The fish and chips were really good. We would go back for sure next time we visit Blenheim Palace.

Stayed for one night with a view to visiting Blenhein Palace. Made to feel very welcome by friendly and helpful staff. Pub has good food and nice breakfast. Room comfortable and well stocked with toiletries and warm fluffy towels. Bed was a little tired but pillows were good.

Early evening meal which was very disappointing. Sea bass overcooked and dry accampanied with chili sauce. Lasagna and pulled pork burger ok. Peppers stuffed with risotto inedible and left uneaten for which we received a refund. Service good Would not return

Can't recommend The Duke enough. Friendly welcome, large clean room with an incredibly comfortable bed. We were spoilt for choice with our evening meal which didn't let us down. We had come down from Manchester to watch my daughter take part in the Blenheim Palace Bloodwize triathlon. The Duke let us park our car on their car park in the... More

The food in the pub was extremely nice and there was a good selection on the menu - including gluten free choices. The service was prompt and friendly. We would recommend to others and... More

We stayed one night and would stay again. Very pleasant hosts with good food and an excellent room. We did not know what to expect as with all stays at hotels but were very pleasantly surprised. Although on a main road the traffic noise was not a problem.

Welcome ok, we stopped for lunch and ordered a share dish but it was totally uninspiring, poorly presented and did not taste good. Nothing much else to say except I cannot recommend. Perhaps we were just unlucky.

We booked this at the last minute as we were travelling in the area. You walk into the bar and 'reception' is at the bar, where you sign in and collect keys. Very friendly and welcoming staff, who enjoy banter and make you feel like you're at home. Some good local ales are pulled traditionally here. The room on the... More

lovely place to stay with friendly staff and amazing food. room was great and bed was extremely comfortable. As someone who is allergic to Gluten it was great to have such a wide choice of food options and I didn't know what to choose first. Every meal was delicious and we were sorry to leave. Will definitely be back
