I visited with two other couples on a sunny Friday evening and sat outside on comfy seats overlooking the river. The setting is lovely and the service was very friendly and efficient. We ordered sharing platters on which there were scotch eggs which were just delicious! We later moved to the bar downstairs, called 'The Rowing Club' which looked like... More

I had a fish and chips, it was so oily, greasy that after a few hours i had pain in my stomach due to the too much grease, oil. I should have not eaten it but it was expensive, £12 and i did not want to remain hungry.

Staff very inattentive and spent more time looking at their own dessert plates than our table. Most dishes on the menu weren’t available on a Monday night and when asked for the fish and chips (3 meals) deep fried roast potatoes came as the child... Perhaps recycled from the sunday lunch? Absolutely terrible service and food was boring - perhaps... More

We had walked from Richmond to Putney along the Thames Path, so were keen to find a good pub with food and beer. Well, one out of two was not bad... The service was excellent and friendly. The beer was well kept. The food was really expensive, so we just had a few chips - not at all good value... More

After being let down big time by the Star & Garter next door, I have given a review on that. We had a successful evening at The Dukes Head ,everybody enjoyed the food and the venue.

It looks nice and cosy inside and outside, sandwiches are very well made and it has a large choice of good beers. I won't suggest you to go there by summer because it's about 7 mt from Thames,and the smell of It, escpecially if you eat outside,is quite nasty. The bathroom it's a real negative point cause I found the... More

The Duke's Head is a fantastic option for guests looking for a great meal and a wonderful view of the Thames - Easy to find and staff has always been very helpful to me and the team I work with when hosting our events! I highly recommend The Duke's Head.

Pub with a lovely view of the river directly from your lunch table, good food and a great terrace area to enjoy drinks next to Thames.
