The Duke is a friendly pub with a good selection of food and alcohol. I particularly enjoy the quiz nights on Wednesday.

We had a table of 17 family members dining at The Duke for my birthday.
We were greeted warmly and attended too fantastically all night, inluding being asked regularly if we needed more drinks which was great! Something you don't get much anymore!
We had 5 children in the group and their meals came out first to keep them entertained, which was great!
However the adult meals then took almost another hour to arrive, by which time the children were needing attention again!
There were mixed reactions to the meals, but there were many words flying around like tough, salty, dry soggy and cold... I had the duck breast which was really disappionting- the duck was very hard to slice and was a very small piece, and the mash it was served on was so sweet and had a flavour I just couldn't put my finger on- I found it almost inedible.

It's a shame that such brilliant service could not be backed up by the food.

I don't think we'll go back in a hurry with so many other places doing it better.

My daughter and I had lunch at The Duke last Friday and were both generally disappointed with our meals. I have previously eaten here but not for a long time. There were a number of young guys training, appeared to be their first time waiting but that was OK. It was the food that was disappointing; I ordered a steak sandwich which was 95% shoestring fries piled on the plate smothering a tiny luke warm steak. I'm guessing the poor little stringy piece of steak had been sitting waiting for the McDonalds style fries to arrive as they were hot (and plentiful) but regrettably everything else luke warm at best. My daughter had the Pizza special; again only just OK unfortunately. Pub food isn't expected to be 5-star, but at $18 bucks for a large plate of shoestring fries and a near cold steak and a very average pizza at $20 I won't be rushing back. Better options in Hobart for food.
