I have been to the Duke of Portland a few times for a meal and each time I have had a really enjoyable experience.. I went back last week and was surprised with the look of the new menu and it was an absolute delight.. My Porterhouse beautifully cooked and the side I choose were very tasty. My partner even...

I had heard a lot of my colleagues saying that this was a lovely place for lunch and evening meals but I think that my visit occurred on an 'off day'. I was with customers and colleagues, a group of 8 in total. The staff were pleasant, the order was taken quickly, drinks were supplied and then we waited, and... More

Had a reservation for a Thursday evening at 7pm. Not too many diners so left it lacking in atmosphere. The staff were young but very attentive and helpful. Wasn't our best dining experience? Soup overloaded with garlic. The mains mixed up but they did remove both meals and returned with completely fresh meals. My partners was fine but I ordered... More

I went here with friends, we all had starters and mains. The food was lovely and service was great except the manger who was a little funny (and a tad unprofessional) when two members of our party were unhappy with how their steaks were cooked. However, after his quibble they brought out fresh food for those who weren't happy and... More

Having experienced many tasting menus previously at a variety of locations, we were delighted when this one was advertised on the Living Social website quoting a tempting menu at up to 64% below the normal price. The voucher stated the six course menu would include smoked salmon, confit of rabbit, loin if cod, slow cooked brisket of beef and chocolate... More

Popped in for a drink. Nicely decorated with friendly service. So we decided to stay to eat. The food was well presented, well cooked and tasted great. The service was efficient and unobtrusive. Would highly recommend a visit.

Stopped here in the middle of a long journey as it came recommended and is only a few minutes off the M6. They have a great choice on the menu, willing you to come back and the portion size is great. Staff are friendly and attentive and were good with my little one. Can't complain about anything. Will defiantly come... More

After birthday plans fell through today, we decided to find a nice country pub and have a lovely lunch. We decided to try The Duke of Portland and booked a table. There was no need, we were the only people in there. The staff were lovely but I really didn't enjoy the food. My crab gratin was so 'un-gratinated' the... More

Dropped in for a quick family meal for Saturday lunch and received a very warm welcome. Great area to sit and relax before going to your table when your food is ready. Staff cant do enough to help you. The menu changes on a regular basis which is nice as there is always a new option.

I had the ribs and belly pork which just melted in the mouth it was fantastic. I finished my meal with the chocolate brownie, which as always was amazing. We will... More
