Dinner at The Duke

Had a great meal at The Duke Hotel. Good friendly service, lovely Decor Pork Ribs fell off the bone. We left satisfied. Well done The Duke.

Two of us just popped in on a Friday evening, with a great greeting and service. Had the Lamb salad in a main serve, absolutely delicious. Would definitely return when visiting Hobart again.

I have a theory about pub restaurants - they shouldn't try to specialise in Aisan or Indian or Thai (you get the idea) foods, just provide regular meals, maybe with some flair. The Duke does basic seafood well (my mate) and quite good steak (my wife). These were greatly enjoyed. The gourmet pizzas slightly missed the mark. Even with a... More

We go for work lunches because it is close. If you are limited to the hour, it is best to pre-order. Service is friendly, drinks ordered at the bar. The lamb salad is delicious, but I found the pizza a bit rich , nice flavours but strong. Overall a good atmosphere.

We had lunch there twice on a short visit to Hobart. It was totally delicious food, very generous serves as well! Not too badly priced and great service.

Excellent if you have a pizza graving and you prefer to go for a restaurant experience. Good variety of wood fired pizzas plus alternate menu choices other than pizza. They have a wood fire going, staff are good, and you can have good quality wines by the glass. Plenty of no charge (after 6pm) on street car parking available. Overall... More

The best place in Hobart, the owner went out of his way to cater for us, even kept the bar open for us past the closing time, and kept a table for us the following night, the owner is fantastic.

I've been here many times and never had a bad meal. Good and quick service. Drinks at bar prices - you buy the drinks from the bar, and table service for the food. What is good is that with a group you can pay as you leave for each meal rather than a table bill. All the meals are great... More

One of my favourite entrees in Hobart is the Duke's garlic Woodfired Pizza, yum! This restaurant has a lovely ambience and the waiters/waitresses are always friendly, helpful, attentive, really great service which helps make the overall experience a really fantastic one. The servings are generous, just the right amount, steaks were great, the pies a favourite among several, as were... More
