A lovely setting overlooking the Thames with helpful, friendly staff. A real fire adding to the atmosphere. There is not a vast choice on the menu, but this is because the dishes are fresh and made to order. I choose guinea fowl with pearl barley.

Had a lovely midweek dinner at the Duke's Head. The menu is a little on the small side and a little pricey, however the food was excellent. The setting with views of the river and a lovely open fire on chilly nights was lovely. The dining area is in a separate room to the rest of the pub which adds... More

A nice setting, lovely view of the River Thames, but food rather expensive, and service was very slow.

We visited the Dukes while in London and found this to be a real popular pub with agood selection of beers. We decided to eat in the restaurant and found it to be overpriced and potions very small.

A daughter took me here for my birthday lunch and then I was surprised by all my family, travelling from afar, turning up! What started as a quiet lunchtime developed into an afternoon and early evening of great fun to which the staff responded marvellously. Nothing was too much trouble and we were all well catered for. It is situated... More

my husband , son and I went for an evening meal at the Dukes head last week. Although it was really busy the service was efficient and friendly. Some of the items on the menu were no longer available but there was still a good choice. The food was excellent and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. We will certainly return.

We went for lunch with a big group and our kids. The staff were really friendly, attentive and on the ball, making sure we were well looked after. Food was delicious and a good time was had by all. We're lucky to have this pub as our local.

We recently visited the Dukes head for Sunday lunch, we loved the location, looking straight onto the Thames and the nice feel in the front restaurant. They were busy but we were seen fairly quickly and staff were friendly. We ordered the roast to share and found the meat lovely and there was def enough to feed all four of... More
