We ordered our food and drinks and then waited. Service seemed slower than usual despite the lack of customers. When... More

Visited the Dukes Head with my partner, had a quick drink in the bar area before sitting in the restaurant, as it was early we didn't need to book. Although the restaurant was quite empty the member of staff tried to sit us within touching distance of a couple of ladies eating their food, so we politely asked if we... More

The menu is not run of the mill and there are some interesting choices however not ideal for people who like plainer food and 3 of the party had the... More

Have been to the dukes head at least a dozen times since we moved to Crawley down 2.5years ago. Whenever we want guaranteed good food & service this is the place we go. Never had a bad meal & the staff have always been so friendly.

My husband booked us in here for Valentines as he knows I love it here, it certainly didn't disappoint as some places do on special occasions, there was a fantastic 3 course set menu, with a glass of prosecco to start, the service was fantastic but not intrusive, the food was great, and an added touch was they had kept...

Amazing Sunday lunch, and the waiter was very accommodating to us changing options around. Was slightly cold in the restaurant, and everywhere else was full but the waiter moved a heater over to us and we soon warmed up. Great service and the desserts were to die for.

Hi Clair C I'm really pleased you enjoyed your recent visit to the Dukes Head on Sunday I would agree the desserts are to die for my favourite is the crumble and custard but the Crème Brulee on the specials with the crispy top is another favourite Great to see your waiter dealt with your requests effectively and swiftly Kind...

Never been here before but I have to say we will be back!! Food was excellent! Service exemplary!! We were made so welcome, the food as I say was great and good value too. What made it was the personal service though. We had to wait for nothing and Nothing was too much trouble. I highly recommend this pub!!!!
