GOOD PLACE TO ENTERTAIN

Great place for atmosphere and food.The place is buzzing and the front outside picnic tables are good for soaking up the sun adjacent to the promenade.

Visited with friends, good menu with a varied choice. We sat in the conservatory type area which was light and airy, but their are outside tables for when the weather is really sunny. The food was delicious and enjoyed by us all and the service was excellent even though they were quite busy. I would definitely recommend this restaurant

Spent a lovely wee time sitting in the pub garden, enjoying the sunshine and drinking my latte. Especially nice when I saw one of the bar staff go around giving all the dogs wee treats.

It was raining, cold and getting late but the staff welcomed us to a full restaurant and found us a table. The food was very good and I would willingly go back again.

As I live in Sidmouth, I have eaten here many times over the last 13 years. Its had its highs and lows, but had really dipped the last few times I went, to the point where we didn't really bother with it much. However, the new chef and revamp have really paid off. The food is fantastic and I love... More

Recommended by our hotel for dinner as dog friendly, three of us and dog had dinner on a Friday night. The welcome was good, the menu inviting and the food was excellent in taste and presentation. When one of my accompaniments was unavailable I was cheerfully given a double portion of alternatives. Excellent service and a brilliant cider selection topped... More

The welcome was warm and friendly. even our dog was made to feel special. We opted for a cooked lunch with a glass of something cold, but tea coffee and some delicious looking cakes were on offer. The friendly staff and excellent food makes Dukes a must visit. Recommended

We decided to eat here on our first night's stay here and were not disappointed. Plenty of choice which meant there was something for everyone . The only issue was what to choose from the vast array. It is necessary to book as it is very popular and they have nightly promotions which again prove popular. Definitely not to be... More

We visited Sidmouth seafront after visiting the nearby Donkey Sanctuary. First impressions were great, clean and friendly staff. When we asked to move inside as the weather turned chilly it want an issue at all. The double pram easily fit through the doors and it was spacious enough so no worries at all. I went with the veggie burger which... More
