We booked a short break here, taking advantage of an Amazon deal for two nights' b&b with dinner and wine on the first night. Our welcome was warm and friendly, we were shown our room at once, and we were given plenty of information about mealtimes, facilities etc. Our evening meal was really good - the quality and freshness of...

The pub is situated in a lovely location. The bedroom was small and needed updating but the bed was very comfortable and everything was clean. The bathroom for sole use of our room was along the hall. When booking I was led to blieve this was the only room available which clearly was not the case as only one other... More

I have put many reviews on Tripadvisor (always finding positives) and before anyone says 'people always find something to moan about' I myself have been frequently surprised by the nonsense that people do find to moan about. However our older children purchased a discount website 'deal' for Xmas for 2 nights at Dukes Head - there was no choice with... More

Julie W, Manager at Dukes Head Hotel, responded to this review

In response to a DEAL booked by the family, we have never run a DEAL at Xmas time so how could a DEAL have been booked! The rooms booked were booked online at full price, You never expressed you had booked a DEAL with us, asking what was included etc. or gave a booking code or voucher number on arrival... More

The starter was soup celery & stilton soup but made with a meat base so no good to a veggie, The main course... More

Did not expect such a warm welcome after a rather abrupt conversation with Clive on booking no need for any fears both Clive and Julie are very sincere in making your stay pleasant. Just returned from a weekend away in Armathwaite a lovely part of the country. Dukes Head was very clean and cosy. Food in restaurant was first class... More
