Great to be back in The Duke. The waiting staff were fast, attentive and friendly, the food was excellent, and everyone coped very well in the new measures. Almost like old times!

Most of the food was lovely, though there was a mix up with the order of beef roasts. Those who has the beef said it wasn't amazing, but the other meats ordered (pork belly and lamb), were fantastic. Service was very, very friendly if a touch slow (drinks taking 20mins for e.g.), but that's to be expected on a busy Sunday. Staff are a real pleasure.

We waited an hour for our first drinks, we ordered buratta but the cheese was a hard salty cheese, probably halloumi. We ordered sweet potato fries but got normal chips. We were not told about the lack of sweet potato. Our cocktails took almost 2 hours. Our bill was heavily discounted but our night was really affected by the slow service and food mistakes. We defiantly won’t be rushing back, very disappointed!

The food was fabulous. I had the curried cauliflower and not only did it look pretty it tasted delicious. Felt really safe in the lovely garden and the staff were very attentive

The menu did not have much choice. I booke for 3 of us incl 1 child and was sat out by the road snd we had to ask to be moved by the canopy area. We were originally sat in a smoking area. Very obliging once we asked abs I understand it was the first day of opening.

The food took 45 minutes to arrive. The quality and portion sizes of the food didnt meet our expectations for the price we were paying. The waiting staff are absolutely fantastic however and we hope to return.
