Being a pub I was completely expecting a pub meal, however I was seriously impressed. We had the special Valentines Menu, and it was brilliant. The food was stunning and the service fantastic. I will definitely be visiting again. Thanks so much Duke of Gloucester.

Went with a group of friends, as we just returned from ordering our meals we heard a waiter speak rudely to some customers, then our meals come out, the dianne sauce tasted like vinegar, the chicken meal I order was just dried chicken on a plate with sauce and had to send another persons meal back as her mushroom sauce...

Very disappointed in food, service and general interest of the staff in what they were doing, especially as it was a cold wet night.

Good place if you want a burger and fries. Prices are in the mid-range for everything. They have a great outdoor patio that is great for lunch!

Lovely setting in the summer. Live band on a Sunday in the courtyard. Nice variety of food. In the winter, theres plenty of space inside and a nice roaring Fire,

I ordered dessert once though, and was horrified to see a trolley wheeled out with examples on it to choose from. I thought.....how odd, they won't keep long. Then to my amazement - when I chose one, they took it off the dirty ol trolley and served... More
