Delicious Sunday roast in a lovely setting. Despite being very busy as it was Easter, we weren’t rushed at all and the service was attentive with friendly staff, lovely tableware and good portions. Very impressed.

Had a great 2 night stay here. We were kindly upgraded to a lovely sea facing room. The pub is ideally located in town, close to shops and the seafront. Parking at the side is a bonus, too. Staff were really friendly. The breakfasts were delicious and freshly cooked to order.

lovely hotel, a bit quirky with not a straight line or flat floor in the old building. Stayed in Room no. 7, which didn't have a good view, but was lovely and spacious. Great staff with friendly, 'nothing is too much trouble' attitude. brilliant location, and lovely breakfast. free parking on site

Great location right on the Esplanade. Lots of seating outside. Recommend seats inside by the window to the patio if its too cool to be outside. Good service and food selection. The Game Pie was delicious.

We arrived on a massively busy Sunday. Sun was out and school holidays... Despite this, we received a fantastic reception and were given a lovely room for 2 nights. Staff were so so busy but despite this, found time to show us to our room etc. Dukes is in a premium location with parking nearby. So far, we love it!!

We pop in here about once every 6 weeks or so for breakfast. This morning we popped in and had another great breakfast, they welcome dogs so that is a plus for us. You can sit inside or outside and this morning we were inside. We had coffee and poached eggs on toast, as usual both were very good, piping...

Once you have arrived and parked you can forget the car if only staying for a few days. The shops and restaurants are within very short distances. The staff all seem to have an unforced charm, kindness and courtesy which is, alas, becoming rarer. The food, both in quality and presentation, is higher than I woul have expected in what...
