Good Gastro Pub!

I have to agree with the previous reviews here. We were seeing a band (friends of ours from the US and UK) and meeting up with them and other local friends for a spot of dinner beforehand. We really weren't sure who or how many and it was a busy Friday night, but the staff could not have been... read more

I was here meeting my Brother with my young family and I was really looking forward to it. I used to live very nearby and The Dukes Head was an old favourite. However the food, despite the expense, took an hour to arrive. When it did, it wasn't as ordered, the fish arrived undercooked and the food that was cooked... More

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. It was cooked with comfit tomato and was quite excellent. Much better than any dishes... More

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.
