I'll keep it brief Delicious dinner last Friday evening. Very busy but excellent service. Really friendly and well run establishment. Thank you for being Dog Friendly. Sidmouth hostelries - take note. This is an example of how to run a successful service industry business. No bright lights and loud TV's. Welcome for dogs - with an area for non dog... More

As always the beer was good or in this instance Cider. Staff are always polite and helpful. It is a shame that there is so little inside seating unless you are eating and use the restaurant. However give it a try - you will not be sorry. Coffee really nice and available to takeaway

Dukes holds a special place in my heart, having grown up with it just a short journey away. Now I've moved out of the country it is always somewhere I look forward to visiting when I'm in the UK. Right on the seafront it feels like a classy establishment that welcomes everyone. The food is great and I can highly... More

We have been many times to Dukes and they still provide very good food with great hospitality. Nice environment, inside or out with a good menu to suit all tastes. I've had good service even when they have been very busy and would undoubtedly go back again. Recommended.

We weren't sure about this place from the outside but were glad we visited once inside. Not cheap, but food was very pleasant. Only downside was that the drinks we ordered were slow to arrive (half way through the meal).

Group of 5, 9.30am for breakfast. No table big enough to seat all of us as it was already busy. We were quite suprised that the 'full english' did not include any toast or tea, these we found out had to be paid for as extras!! Tea perhaps but toast?? Well at least the food was hot and quickly served.... More

Thanks for the review, we are always happy to add extra bacon or pancakes, next time you're at Dukes, just ask for a little extra - we would be more than happy to oblige! More
