Wrapped Up for Dinner

Unfortunately no room for us inside, but room on the outside tables. It was a little chilly but Dukes provides warm blanket wraps. Order at the bar - fish and chips and beer and cider and the staff soon bring it out to you. Very nice with a good sized fish and fair protion of chips. Our puds were... read more

Disappointed! Took my husband to Dukes for their seafood night as he loves shellfish and the menu I looked at the week before had all his favourites on.

We went to Dukes for a meal which was recommended by the owners of the B&B where we were staying last week. The service and the food were both excellent, we did have to book though as its a very popular eating place in Sidmouth. We would recommend it to anyone whether it be couples or families.

Location was brilliant, and you're probably best off with the 'specials' each day. Lots of seafood on offer. But whilst all very nice, food was nothing to write home about. Decent enough, but nothing to make you think 'Wow!' For me 'decent enough' was perfectly OK, I was on business and ate here because it was convenient, I wasn't looking... More

This is a comfortable and hotel which is overlooking the glorious seafront at Sidmouth. We enjoyed our short stay and found the staff to be friendly and rooms were comfortable and clean. The hotel was good value and we expect to visit again.

All i can say is it was fantastic food and wonderful service from a lovely young lady from Australia. She was friendly, helpful and a real breath of fresh air (some of the other members of staff could learn from her, especially an older lady i think in charge). The food..... OMG it was beautifully cooked, i had the pork... More
