Decided to give Dukes Head another chance and called in early evening to treat friends to a meal. Pleasant ambience in the lounge area with real fire. Friendly service. Were told lasagne came with salad - it didn't after all and we were charged extra. Fair enough for the waitress to make a mistake with lack of product knowledge -...

I am sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with your meal. It has took me a few days to respond as I have been talking with all staff members to find out why there was no salad sent out with the Lasagne. There was an occasion recently when a lady asked for no salad and to have chips...

I reviewed the Dukes Head in April and I was less than complimentary but I visited again and I was very pleased with what I found. I had a lovely Sunday roast, well cooked and presented. The difference from my last visit was amazing. I would highly recommend eating here.

Fantastic meal at the Dukes. Table of 5 which each of us selecting a different choice. All were superb. Food was nicely presented with more than ample portion size. Only one dessert ordered and again we were not disappointed. Chocolate brownie with white chocolate ganache and cream. Mmmmm.

We called into the Dukes early one Saturday night The menu was refreshing and had something for everyone. Our food was delicious, but after paying the bill we noticed that we had been charged £3 per glass of lemonade for the kids. Their drinks exceeded the price of the alcoholic ones! This left a bitter taste and we have not...

Walked here for a late Sunday lunch from Englethwaite Caravan Site. There were only a few people in but we had the choice of restaurant, bar or outside. We decided to go for a roast (pork) and each got an enormous portion of tender, moist meat with a selection of fresh vegetables . On thinking back it would have been...

We were treated to dinner with friends who had travelled up from Dorset. Dawn was very attentive. The meal was superb. Cheese soufflé starter highly recommended. Compliments to the Chef!! We can see the pub from our house and are delighted with the turnaround. During the previous two tenancies, the experience was so poor we only went in twice. We...

I came to try their new 'taster menu' which they serve from 5pm-6.30pm. I came with my mum just for a quick tea and the portion size was ideal! Not too much but not too little, we didn't want to order from the main menu as we weren't too hungry and wanted room for one of the delicious puddings! My...

My wife and I called for a light lunch. We were greeted by a lady and gentleman very warmly. My wife had a soup and sandwich deal and I had an open sandwich. The food was served promptly by a rather nervous, but very pleasant young waitress. We thought it was very good. We understand that the pub has only...

Had dinner, last night, from the specials offered on the menu. Good quality food, excellently cooked and presented. The recent change of management has breathed life back into what was a flagging business. At long last this pub/ hotel is going in one direction.... Up.

“Ours was Room 5, with en suite shower room. It was very comfortable, spotlessly clean (like everywhere else in the hotel) with a 6ft bed and plenty of clothes storage. There was an extra blanket in the wardrobe, along with a hot/cold fan heater. Our room overlooked the road but was quiet. Rooms at the back would overlook the car park but there is a beer garden between the building and the car park. We didn't hear anything from about 10:30pm till 7:45am.”
