We have visited the Duke on numerous occasions, but have not been since the new landlord has taken on the pub and site.
Before we visited recently, we were aware from their website that work was being undertaken on the campsite, what we didn't realise or appreciate was how much work is being done!
The pub itself is in the process of having a makeover at the moment and one thing we were hoping for before we arrived was continuity in the atmosphere in the pub. We needn't have worried; there was a lovely fire, easy listening background music and a very nice welcome.
We ate in the pub both nights and as in the past the food is wonderful, with lovely home made chips! There is a nice selection to choose from including beer battered fish, steak and ale pie, steaks to mention a few. All reasonably priced too.
All-in-all, despite the work going on, we really enjoyed our stay and look forward to a return visit later in the year to see how the site and pub has continually improved.
