Description: All great hotels need a fantastic eatery for their hungry guests, and the ever-popular Dukes Restaurant & Bar is exactly that. Having held an AA rosette for more than 14 years and having featured in the very first Michelin Guide and in each guide ever since, the cuisine at Dukes is evidently some of the highest quality around. The chef brigade takes great pride in delighting the diners with their sumptuous and locally sourced modern British dishes. The à la carte menu changes with the seasons, and the set-price market menu makes for a great value alternative. If you know someone who’s deserving of an indulgent treat, why not attend one of Villiers Hotel’s vastly popular afternoon teas? Served in the Dukes Restaurant, snug or lounge, warm your extremities by the roaring log fire and tuck into something scrumptious when the chilly weather sets in, or make the most of the sunnier months and eat al fresco, sitting on the courtyard terrace while sipping a glass of fresh Champagne.

Not great. Could or should tweak itself a bit to meet contemporary expectations but the standards and the food here are very good and stand out for satisfying tasty reliable traditional food. Very good for Buckingham. Not just a safe bet, rather a good solid choice with occasional forest rate dishes.

Our works Xmas Party was cancelled for December and re-arranged for January so we were all very please that Villiers made it feel like Xmas for us by putting out Xmas novelties and creating such an creative atmosphere. The food was delightful, the Hooky Ale beef just melted in the mouth. I could have eaten it again.

Staff were very courteous and attentive, I would go there again and again
