All round great, the staff were busy but would have liked to have had them offer if we wanted anything else or get the bill at the end

Buzzwords management and The Duke staff deserve some recognition as a Business model. They have been instrumental in keeping the Communities in Ayrshire Happy and well fed during this awful pandemic. Well done to every single one of them. Thanks!!!

Had a lovely fancy piece lunch with my friend. Service was excellent initially with drinks and sandwiches served promptly. We then ordered 2 coffees and 2 empire biscuits. Sadly the coffee was only lukewarm and the empire biscuits did not arrive. We did not bother making a fuss but when the bill came we were being charged for the empire biscuits. This was quickly rectified by the boy on the till at the door.

Our 1st visit to the Duke and it was very enjoyable, great food at very reasonable prices, the staff were very friendly and attentive, the service was quick and the atmosphere was spot on. All in all, a perfect evening, could not fault anything.

£7 for 4 lime and sodas a bit steep but this was set off against a 50% discount on food so didn’t really feel it. If I’d had to pay full price would have been an expensive lunch which would reduce how often I used the Duke. It’s a really nice venue filled with good staff and I’d recommend it. I’d just ask the bosses to keep an eye on prices. When folks can get back this is one place I’d like to see busy

Nice surroundings and decor. Given the strange circumstances the staff worked hard to make the visit seem normal & largely succeeded. Only negative comment would be the limited menu, having been a few times the selection was quite limited and the specials seem to have finished

Excellent food as always. I can’t fault anything. Service is great and love the surroundings. Glad that social distancing is adhered too. If tables were any closer I probably wouldn’t have booked but good spacing throughout.

This was our first visit to The Duke. Our starters were nicely presented and tasty. I was really disappointed by my main (spicy chicken burger). There was absolutely no flavour to it at all. Really bland and lacked any kind of seasoning. The menu itself is limited which is totally understandable just now, but it wasn't until we left that we noticed the blackboard with the specials on it (no member of staff had advised us of daily specials and no mention on menu). We left feeling little deflated and won't rush back. Shame as decor and atmosphere really good.

Having eaten in many of the Buzzworks establishments, this was our first time at the Duke. The meal was lovely. Cannot fault the food we had. Disappointed by a comment made by Male staff member as we were leaving. Due to the 6pm closures, our 4.30pm booking meant we were leaving about 5.45. As we are walking out the door, our 4 year old son was talking to a very pleasant female staff member and telling her his name. A comment was made by the male staff member (clearly in a rush to finish) to my son "time to leave now ****" Left a bad taste in the mouth following a lovely time otherwise.

Been here several times during these strange times and the service has been fantastic every time - we’ve never been rushed and the staff are all friendly and helpful
