Visited here on a busy Sunday. We were sat in the conservatory which seemed to amplify any surrounding noise which spoiled the meal, which was good pub grub. Drinks expensive for the surroundings.

4 of us eating, we all had the fish and chips which were enormous. Drinks a bit pricy but thats usual on the sea front... Service was good and we had no complaints. There was room to sit outside but we chose to sit in,

We have been to this restaurant before and enjoyed our meal but today was so disappointing that we probably will not be going again. My plaice was fine but my Husbands slow cooked lamb shoulder was tough. The vegetables were as good as raw. When the waitress asked if we had enjoyed our meal I told her about the vegetables...

Six of us called in at 2.30pm for a relaxing afternoon and finally departed at 10.30pm. We were so impressed with the atmosphere and service that we couldn't drag ourselves back to our hotel and change to come back out to dine so we just stayed! A good decision as the evening dinner was excellent,great value and served with a... More

Excellent food , friendly service . Good value for money. Difficult to get decent vegetarian food but the chestnut and wild mushroom cottage pie was great.

Loved the turbot special with risotto, husband had the lamb which was also excellent. The range of drinks (wine) is good and a reasonable price. Table for two was a bit cramped especially trying to accommodate the shared starter with two plates and the wine and glasses but we managed. The staff were very friendly and professional and nothing was... More

Our two night stay at Dukes hotel was great and we feel their restaurant deserves a better TA rating. The staff were welcoming and friendly, the menu interesting with plenty of choice to suit everyone. Food was well cooked and presented and generously portioned. Located centrally on the seafront with a bar for pre-dinner drinks we have no hesitation in... More
