Recently went in on a night time and sampled a cocktail called Mr Tom which uncluded Gin and was delicious. Food has always been faultless... More

Came here with friends for dinner. We all opted on the burgers. When my burger arrived after cutting into it it was too rare/raw for my liking so I asked the waitress about changing it, done with no problem at all. When the replacement arrived it was delicious and the chips really are amazing and huge!!! Service was great today.... More

We have been to the Thin White Duke previously and enjoyed the food and on this occasion we were not disappointed. I had the Pork Plate and it was absolutely delicious, the meat was tender and the veg also cooked to perfection and well presented. Good service and a lovely atmosphere.

A very thoughtful and varied menu. Food freshly cooked; hot on delivery to table. Three different choices at our table, all equally appealing. To emphasise this, 2 of the 3 plates were totally cleared. And for me, a distinct "plus", hand-pumped draught local bitter ale-and in a proper tankard with handle. Sadly, too well stuffed to get to the sweet... More

Went here with my girlfriend and her family for a meal last sunday. Excellent menu and I chose the pork plate. Was an excellent choice with 3 cuts of pork all cooked perfectly. Everyone else had no complaints with anything on their plate. Food is formal and classy but at reasonable prices in a very warm, relaxing and welcoming atmosphere.... More

Food is really nice here and is well priced considering its a more stylish venue to attend. I had a burger and it was cooked perfect, juices still running from the burger. Friend had a steak I would say it was cooked about medium not medium rare but she had no complaints about it. All in all everyone enjoyed their... More

My husband and I ate here for my birthday. The food was delicious. My steak was over done and straight away I was given a large glass of wine to apologise and a perfectly cooked steak to follow. We will definitely be returning.

I go there every two weeks or so, and always switch between the burgers. They have lovely sauces that comes with them, a choice of different cheeses (for me the best part of it) and all in all great food. My girlfriend also loves going there because of the rest of the menu, good variety.
