I regularly go to the inn with friends and family. With one exception in the last 6 months the food has always been excellent but not cheap. The real ale is always superbly kept

I visited this restaurant with 3 friends. On our arrival I informed the man behind the bar that we were there and he called over a young woman to "sort us out". Not the best way to be greeted but we ordered a bottle of wine and asked if we wanted a "thingy" for it. Yes, we did want an... More

Have been here twice for Sunday lunch, once with family and once with friends, and both times enjoyed our meal. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed and the food has been really good on both occasions. Children can be catered for and were made welcome. Good selection of wines and beer, according to my husband, was very agreeable. Would recommend... More

We have been to the Dukes Heads several times recently but as I've only just joined Trip Advisor this the first review. We visited lunchtime today and were greeted by friendly staff. We sat outside as it was a sweltering day. The gardens are nice with views over the marshes if seated in the right position. We both had cod... More

From the start to the end of the meal there were issues. First of all the waitresses did not take our order until asked. The empty glasses were not removed until the end of the meal. Not one member of staff come over to ask if anything else was needed or if everything was ok during the meal. The desserts... More

Stopped by for an impromptu lunch after a lovely walk at Herringfleet. Had heard the place had changed hands, so not sure what to expect. We were really impressed: the decor is lovely and the service was really friendly and efficient. There was a good choice on the bar menu. We both had the fish and chips, the fish was... More

We've had lunch twice here in the last month after walking our dog. It was excellent. So we decided to desert our other regular every Friday for the last 5 years St Olaves restaurant and give the Dukes Head a try for the evening meal. My partner had the sea bass. I had the belly pork. Both were the best... More

I recently had a 3 course meal here and it was superb!! The food was 5 star and we and my partner both had steak cooked to perfection. Its the little things that made it stand out, like the pate and sliced warm bread, the bread was cut into perfect little circles. The dip that came with the selection of... More

We ate here for lunch, after wanting to try this place for a little while. On entering the pub on a November day, were very welcomed to find the fire burning and a lovely atmosphere and thought this will be really nice. However, we are sorry to say we were disappointed. We were sat near the open kitchen and could... More

Called in for lunch following a good squint at Somerleyton Hall and as this was very local, thought we would give it a go. First impressions - strange, plenty of cars in the car park but although the main restaurant area was pretty full, there was little noise, no sound of conversation and the place felt empty. Little atmosphere. Service... More
