Excellent food and value for money. The three of us had the speciality fish pie which was delicious. Although very busy the staff soon found a table for us. Staff were very attentive and professional.

sea front situation. Comfortable well equipped rooms. Great food. Lively atmosphere in the bar at night. Early March, it could have been summer.

Had a light lunch in Dukes after arriving in Sidmouth on our first day. The meal was very nice indeed, and we found the staff extremely welcoming.
