Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Used to be regular visitors to "The Dukes", and when it re-opened we returned. However we were very disappointed. We are however THINKING of returning and giving it one more chance. I notice that the manager never comments on any of the reviews or contacts the customers. Rather worrying, but we will give it one more try........before it probably closes again due to lack of customers. Any comments?

I was very disappointed when I visited a couple of months ago....but may be worth trying again if there's a new head chef. Service was terrible though so they would need to address this too. Will wait to see good reviews... More
