Went for a friends birthday celebration last night and came away with a disappointing experience. Have used previously and had a good time so seemed a good choice but will not be using again if this is what the Resturant is about. Place was not busy with only four tables being occupied but only one waiter on. Seated in the... More

We were then taken to our table which had 9 beer mats scattered under one leg to try and balance the table . Not some of the best engineering as the... More

We visited here for lunch and we will be back. The menu was varied with both classic pub meals and specials of the day. All choices were excellent, tasty and beautifully cooked, especially the desserts. The wines were also excellent. The staff were both courteous and attentive.

Very disappointing visit to the dukes head at the weekend, this is a pub/restaurant that we have been to in the past and enjoyed. Haven't been for a year or 2, and will not be returning. On arrival we were seated and then forgotten about for about 20 min, until we then went to ask if we could order drinks.... More

I read the recent reviews and was a little concerned with some of the negatives, but thought I'd try the Restaurant anyway. We arrived, ordered a couple of drinks and were seated promptly. Now the furniture is a bit mismatched which isn't an issue, but one of our chairs was wonky and had to be replaced. Our table was propped... More

Asked for a glass of wine on arrival, bar man poured out the wine of our choice then hit us with the price of £18 for 2 large glasses, too late by then to change mind, however we did get a free glass of house each with the meal which made up for it. Food was slow but tasty, we... More

Took a bit of a punt on this place, isolated and not especially inviting from the outside. However we received a warm welcome and were treated to some excellent food. Baby friendly, and a short walk to the river where one can moor up for free. Would be great in the summer!

We have been going to the Dukes Head for 10 years and have always enjoyed it and return frequently. Last night however we were disappointed.... for the first time we were not able to find anything to order as a starter and I am not at all hard to please and eat most things. I asked if I could have... More

Visited the Dukes Head for a nice Sunday Lunch with my family ... will not be returning any time soon ... the meat was nothing but fat and cold ... the vegetables were cold ... very poor service from unfriendly staff ... no more can be said other than awful .......
