I visited the Duke with my parents for lunch mid week and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food (a visit 12 months ago had been very disappointing but recent trip advisor reviews led me to giving the duke another try). The menu has a good range of dishes and in particular some really tasty starters. Main courses... More

Popped in here late on a Friday night, fairly quiet and sat outside in a small area in the courtyard. Modern inside, staff friendly but drinks expensive.

We had the fish and chip sharing board and it was delicious and very good value, unlike a single spirit and mixer which was very expensive. Service was quick and efficient. Nice weekday evening venue for a quiet drink and bite to eat.

Nice pub and decor, large and spacious with friendly staff. The menu is poor, small portions and very bland. Sausage and mash was so disappointing with boring tasteless sausages!

Positives: The staff are brilliant - probably some of the nicest in the area. The ales there are also great to try. Wonderful environment that feels very relaxed. Great pub quiz and some good food too. Negative: Ate the chicken goujons there and it was incredibly average.
