Managed to get a table at short notice, The staff & Owners couldnt have been nicer. phoned at 7pm trying to get a table, they explained they could fit the 2 of us in, but had to vacate the table for another booking at 9.30pm, but that wasnt a problem for us, When we arrived we where greated with a really warm welcome, there was live jamaican music. and such a great atmosphere. The menu is limited, but that actually works in its favour here, the Food was really great, a fab choice of cocktails, and all very reasonably priced. At 9.30 the place was in full swing, we had finished our great meal and enjoyed a few drinks, as we needed to vacate our table, the staff could see we where loving the live music and actually managed to find us another spot in the shack to stay on and enjoy the music and cocktails, there was actually a bit of dancing going on in the place later in the evening. Cant wait to go back here and try some of the other dishes on the menu. But wont be leaving it to the last minute before booking, I dont think I woud be that lucky again. As the reputation of this place grows. It will be the place to be in Caerleon & Newport

Just visited this hidden gem to celebrate my daughters birthday .What a fab place for fun and food. Menu is limited but everything on it is really tasty and perfectly cooked. The food took a while to arrive as the restaurant was rammed but the fantastic cocktails really took your mind off the wait and everything else really ! The friendly staff all had bucketfuls of personality and worked there socks off to create a fantastic party atmosphere for everyone -nothing was too much trouble. What an amazing night out - loved it- still smiling!

This place is a breath of fresh air with Jamaican music playing in the background and a warm atmosphere. Duchies is on the first floor and just above the pub. We went on a Thursday night and it was very quiet although the place did not feel empty. It is quite small and seats only 25/30 diners and apparently gets very busy on a weekend, so bookings are necessary. The menu is simple with a handful of starters and mains washed down with tastes of the Caribbean.

Our waitress was amazing; full of life, friendly and extremely helpful. We had free refills for our coffee and the whole meal for two with three courses, coffee and two drinks was £40. Bargain. Well worth a visit.

What a place to celebrate my 50th birthday. This little Jamaican shack hidden away above the white hart pub in Caerleon is what I can only describe as 'fabulous'. The food is fantastic and plentiful and very reasonably priced the cocktails are great the staff are lovely and although rushed off their feet smiled the whole time. My friends and I loved it and will definitely go back. We were made to feel very welcome even though the 50th balloons got in the way of the two girls serving us, sorry girls! Great atmosphere with brilliant reggae music all night in the background. I would recommend you book because once the word really gets out you won't stand a chance of getting a table. Fantastic! Thanks Dutchy's you made a 50 year old very happy!
