I ordered the Asian chicken skewers ate one which was amazing put my knife into 2nd one it was raw, spoke to waitress who’s service and attitude was excellent this was removed from my bill, such a shame as this was an amazing dish, other 2 in my party very much enjoyed theirs, will definitely return after being close for so long you expect a few hiccups on opening week

Lovely Christmas lunch on Friday. Staff were clearly busy but service was excellent as usual. One point I would make is that in the current circumstances they have clearly taken time to produce a lovely mocktail menu, which we asked for and enjoyed drinks from. Giving this to people along with the festive menu might result in more people buying as not everyone will be aware it is available.

The cauliflower tempura I did not like at all. The tempura was hard, not crispy and light as I would have expect. The slow cooked beef was absolutely delicious, the best I’ve had anywhere. Friends had a starter and turkey and they enjoyed that. Glad we got this Xmas meal at the half price offer. Would have preferred to have the choice of starter/main or main/dessert. I would pay full price for that.

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.

£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
