Nice pizza but the service left a lot to be desired...

Both my friend and I ordered a margherita pizza . The pizza was tasty and nothing to complain about. The service there was pretty average. The waitress asked if we wanted pepper, and I love cracked pepper so said yes please, however she proceeded to just dump a pepper shaker on our table. Okay... read more

Went for the quiz night on Wednesdays and had dinner. One of The Best risottos I have ever tasted. Generous serves and great service-highly recommended.

I have eaten here often and have never had a bad meal. The prices are good and there is a good variety, from wood fired pizzas, salads to full sized meals of steak, chicken and fresh fish. All are cooked with great spices, sauces and not what you would cook at home during the week. The wine list is good... More

We spent 3 nights in Hobart at the end of a round Tasmania holiday. Found the Duke on TA and was not disappointed. It serves a good range of pub food plus delicious wood fired pizzas at very reasonable prices. Of the 3 nights we were in Hobart we dined here twice. Between us we had a prawn risotto, a... More

We came upon the Duke by accident while looking for somewhere for dinner the staff were friendly & we were seated with drinks quickly. Nice atmosphere & hotel got very busy. We ordered a pork belly salad, chicken meal & pork ribs, beautiful flavours. Very large portions we couldn't finish our meals. Would recommend to anyone visiting Hobart.

Ate here last night while our daughter had a school play on, so needed to get in and out reasonably quickly. Started with the mezze which was nice and went on to share the pizza special (pear, brie, white anchovy, prosciutto and pesto). Death by Chocolate for dessert went down well, especially with our 4 year old son. Hats off... More

Found this suggestion on TA and as it was nearby out hotel, we gave it a try. What a pleasurable experience! From the moment we walked in, the welcoming smiles closely followed by an excellent meal, attentive service and very good wine choices. The food was unexpectedly good and well priced. Thank you to Paul and the team.

The place seems to be very popular with the locals (there is a trivia night every Wednesday) but it did not quite deliver for us. My marinara was particularly disappointing - the dish was generous in portion but was dominated by chorizo sausage, the pasta was poorly cooked and drenched in oil. Not value for money.
