Stayed here for two nights for a friends wedding. Place is buzzing at weekends but plenty of staff who are very friendly and helpful. Rooms and bathrooms small but more than adequate for our needs - clean & serviced each morning. Loved being able to be so near sea & shops. Would certainly return.

Great one night stay, clean, comfortable and very well organised. Every member of staff seemed to enjoy their job so I guess the management do things right, would love to stay there again. The Jurassic coast must be one of the cleanest parts of Britain !!!

I stayed for one night, midweek, at Dukes. I was also here for one night exactly a year ago and this time round the receptionist greeted me with "welcome back" - which I thought was a nice touch! All of the staff were brilliant, very courteous and also hard working - excellent customer service. I didn't have food in the... More

My dad and step mum brought us to the pub yesterday after they had been there the previous year and we were not disappointed. The main reason they visited before was because it is doggy friendly and they found the food to be excellent and we agree. The day was glorious so we sat outside under a brolly and enjoyed... More

Visited on Friday 29th May at just gone 830pm (Everwhere else has stopped serving - Maybe I'm too used to European eating hours on holiday???) and was told they were still serving food.....thank God. Nice interior, great serving staff. Ribs £13.00 - Almost a Man Vs Food amount. Very nice indeed. Veggie Gratin - "Just OK" according to vegetarian other... More

Called in on Thursday for a crab sandwich. Best chunky brown bread and packed with crab, served with vegetable crisps and salad. Superb! Saw other meals going out and they looked great, will definitely go back and possibly use hotel facilities.

Dog friendly, warm welcome, nice lunch, not overpriced, clean. We were told we could bring dogs inside but we ate alfresco. The menu is full and varied, huge portions, good range of beers and ciders, certainly made our trip to Sidmouth very pleasant.

Our first day of our break. Called into Dukes as our dog was welcome in the bar area inside. The staff were genuinely friendly and happy to greet you and take your food and drink orders. If you are on a tight budget for lunch then this may not be for you as the average price was over a tenner... More
