Good food. Excellent presentation. Not the cheapest but worth it. Modern decor. Offer civil ceremony weddings too in a newly erected oak structure. Fantastic service. Bad reputation in the past many years ago but cannot fault new enthusiastic landlord, chef and staff .... and good food.

Went there and found it had closed down possibly for good they issued this Statement for Customers. Staff at The Duke of Portland, in Lach Dennis, informed supporters of its fate on social media. In a statement on Facebook they said: "It is with deep regret that the Duke of Portland finished trading today. "From all the staff at the... More

We have just returned from the Duke of Portland and are both literally stuffed ! Having had starters and mains that were both flavoursome and cooked to perfection we had no option or should I say hesitation when asked other than to order desserts. Desserts !! just may have been the wrong thing to do, but hey it was a... More

We met friends for an early dinner on Friday after having not been before. It was faultless. The service was attentive but discreet. The food was exceptional. We will be back. Even more brilliantly we had 50% discount.

Went along to The Duke of Portland using their 50% off food bill offer. Standard of the food and service was superb. Starters were very well presented (served on slate-looking square tiles) and tasted great. The kids meal we chose - fish fingers and chips, was not the standard frozen kind from the supermarket, but instead fresh fish and batter,... More

We recently took advantage of their current 50% off your food bill and had a very enjoyable evening. The food was absolutely delicious and we love the fact that you can choose your own sides. The interior is very smart and we had a very private table in the corner so enjoyed a lovely chilled out evening. The staff were... More

In my opinion the Carvery is very good value for money as you have 3 sizes of plates at various costs. My wife likes a small plate and I choose the regular but a person with a large appetite could go large. The menu meals are of mixed quality and limited.

We have been dining regularly at The Duke of Portland since we moved to the nearby village of Lostock Green 3 years ago. The food is always delicious and the menu varied and not your standard local pub grub but an wonderful hybrid of modern cuisine and the best of local produce. My favourite dish must be the harissa spiced... More
