Carvery or meal

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 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

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

Fantastic meal from start to finish - Even better that there was 50% off ! Love the fact you get to choose your sides from a varied list! Highly recommend the squid & ribs starter and rump steak for mains! Will be back again this month & have told lots of friends about our meal who have also visited and... More

The food started off shockingly excellent- mussels and chicken liver parfait to start followed by sea trout and ribeye. Unfortunately the ribeye was heavily peppered and not to my partners (or my) liking so it was sent back. The chef/owner then confronted my partner who advised that everything was cooked perfectly but the steak over seasoned for his liking, could... More

The staff at the Duke of Portland are not very efficient, we visited last week and the whole place was a shambles.

Party of four booked online for dinner. Good choice of dishes on the menu. Service was "relaxed", but speeded up when the big group ahead of us had been served. Food (starters and mains) were very tasty, all plates cleared and lips licked. When the bill came, we queried the deduction, thinking at first it was for the slow service.... More
