Excellent Food

Booked at the last minute and were really impressed with the food. The service could have been better - the manager was not aware what was not available on the menu and attracting staff for a drink was a bit of a challenge however it was really busy. Would definitely return with the family.

We were looking for a light lunch. Opted for chicken pate which was £7 something! My husband had a more substantial pulled pork sandwich with fries which I didn't really like. We sat in the bar area which was cosy. The restaurant part looked very inviting and the menu was the same. I would look for a cheaper lunch venue... More

We had a Sunday lunch meal, lamb wasn't that great. Beef was ok but the atmosphere and wine meal was extensive. Prices are above average

We were staying in the Effingham Copthorne before flying out of Gatwick airport the next day. The food available was very limited, so we went for a short walk to The Dukes Head. The pub was lovely and warm, (the welcome was very warm too) and we enjoyed a very nice meal, well presented and cooked, and a nice bottle... More

Went to the dukes head for lunch a couple of days ago, the service and food were very good but the bill at the end of the meal wasn't great. Couple of soft drinks and two mains not much change from £50.

Easy parking, optional outdoor eating, pleasant indoor eating area, fabulous food, service good and attentive but overly so. Basically, a good time had.

Always found the food excellent, albeit not cheap. Lovely atmosphere, especially in Winter when the log fire is burning. Great selection of wine.

The Dukes Head reinvented itself some time ago and it has maintained and improved on the new benchmark that it set itself. We have never had a bad experience there and have visited at least ten times in the last year. The service is courteous and efficient and one of the best things is that the restaurant has a different... More

After my last visit to the dukes Head on a Sunday afternoon/evening I vowed never to return! So... being at a loss as to where to eat tonight we ended up deciding to give it one more chance ... and thankfully we did! what a huge difference... I believe it may have been to the re appearance of Sammy the... More
