There were 3 of us celebrating a birthday. We had a few drinks in the bar and then had a meal in the restaurant. Great choice of food, we had difficulty choosing. Apart from our main meals we also ordered the sweet potato fries. They were to die for, we were fighting over the last one. The service was very... More

Lovely bar and restaurant I have eaten at The Dukes Head twice now once with friends and once with my daughter. Both times the food and staff were excellent. The second time they had a singer performing. Would highly recommend.

Visited The Dukes Head for Valentines treat for my wife and myself. We have been here before and really like the Restuarant. The atmosphere is always good and the service excellent and always with smilie staff. The food on this occasion was okay. Not fine dining and a set menu but mostly edible and reasonable. We found the caramel dessert... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review, We are sorry that you did not enjoy your evening this time round. We understand that we are not a 'Fine Dining' establishment, but we do aim to deliver great food within our 'Country Pub' surroundings. To hear our food was only 'Mostly Edible' is a shame to hear.

The staff have serious attitude problems. We pre-ordered Boxing Day lunch with notification of a coeliac being in the party back in July. I confirmed this a week prior to our lunch and they agreed that he was catered for. On arrival there was absolutely no provision for gluten free, in fact they had blatantly ignored the request and ADDED... More

My husband and I came here for Valentine's Day. The food as always was delicious and the service was outstanding. I must also add that the magician they put on for entertainment was a lovely surprise and completely fabulous! Couldn't fault our evening. We love this place, it never disappoints.

We went to the Dukes Head on Valentines night. We were more than impressed with the delicious food, and the extra bubbly was a bonus. What made it extra special was the magician who absolutely blew us away÷ A valentines night to remember, many thanks to all involved.

We recently "re-discovered" this restaurant with a Sunday lunch a month ago. We visited yesterday for a Valentines night meal. On both occasions we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The food was delicious and well presented by attentive staff. We will return !

I love this little hidden secret. I've been going there for the past six years and it never disappoints. Everyone I introduce cannot believe how amazing it is and they never knew about it. I love the scallops and the Eton mess all day everyday.
