My wife and me enjoyed the food. It's fresh and well cooked. The pub was bit empty so the service was really fast. Overall a good experience

After a recent visit we were a little disappointed to say the least. I understand it is now under new management so maybe worth another visit. I did not think it offered good value

You can immediately feel the country side atmoshpere. Try the fish amd chips and some Doombar beer. The prices are very reasonable and the staff is friendly. It's like beeing in a "Midsommer Murders" episode. Cheers, Andrew

The Duke's Head serves modern British cuisine in the heart of the quintessential Essex village. 'Village Pub & Dining' explains our concept perfectly. A warm, friendly, atmospheric pub, which happens to do excellent, locally sourced food! Along with friendly, helpful service, perfect pints and very good wine, this is somewhere that anyone would like to spend a few hours. Relaxing on our sunny patio under pretty parasols, with the children running in the garden or hiding in the quaint tree house or warming you feet in front of a roaring fire, with your dog by your side! Whatever the weather, a warm welcome is always guaranteed at The Duke's Head.
