Amazing food, drinks, staff and atmosphere every time I'm in, which is often! I'm in love with the good old Duke Burger and their chunky fries. Great prices and one of my favourite places

Have eaten here on several occasions and never been disappointed with the food. Atmosphere is always good and the ales although limited are well kept. I have no hesitation when asked to return to the 'Duke'

My sister and I visited for lunch after shopping in town.We sat downstairs where there was plenty of room and a good atmosphere.(Possibly slightly too dark though!)We both enjoyed lunch which was very reasonably priced and will definitely visit again.
