“Really good meal and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

We had not been here for ages, the I bought a voucher on Travelzoo for £39 for 2 startes, mains, a dessert and a bottle of wine for £39.
The meal was fantastic and the menu varied. The service and food presentation was very good and the pub had a great atmosphere.
Looking forward to visiting again

“Excellent Friday Night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Met with family and friends here early doors last Friday. The atmosphere was nice and buzzy and the staff were very attentive. We meet here fairly often and really enjoy the whole dining experience.
We ate from the main menu with the steaks being everyones favourite. The Chocolate Brownie for my dessert was the star of the show, only downside was everyone wanted a taste.
Overall an excellent relaxed dining experience.

“Is it a pub or a restaurant??”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Living locally it was music to my ears when I was told that this establishment had new owners who wished to return it to a pub serving the locals and visitors with good food served in a pub atmosphere, WRONG it turns out to be a place that hasn't made its mind up?? The atmosphere is cold, no fires lit, the music was loud pop music so intrusive that both my wife and I had to speak with raised voices ( we are not old fogies ) it just lacks atmosphere, the food served was good but well over priced so Duke of Portland its make your mind up time Are you a pub or a Restaurant ??

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

We have eaten here on a few occasions and have always been impressed with both the food and the service. The menu is extensive and everything cooked to a very good standard. The service we received was faultless. Overall a great pub in a lovely location. Perfect for walkers or cyclists passing by.

“Pricey but good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Because of a road closure we had a difficult time finding the Duke and arrived late. Staff were fine about this.We took advantage of a special offer meal and were more than happy with the deal. Service was friendly and attentive. Food ,exceptional and well presented. Price are high for a pub even in Cheshire so I'm not sure I'd go again unless it was for a pub lunch. If it was slightly cheaper I'd probaly give it a 5.
