Four friends visited the Duke William restaurant - upstairs from the pub at 7pm on a Friday night. We were served promptly - not surprising because at 7pm on a Friday night we were the only people in there. Food was excellent and portion sizes generous -although extra chips were provided at no charge. Really enjoyed the meal, steak and... More

Popped in without booking for lunch , nice welcome straight to a table for two even though it was very busy , the waitress apologised that they were a bit light on service due to illness, never the less we we promptly served with a two course meal which was very nice indeed

Night out with friends and had a wonderful time. It was my first time having a meal here and wasn't disappointed. I had the lamb shank with mash potatoes and veg, the meat was beautiful and just fell off the bone. The After Eight Mint dessert was absolutely wonderful and I could have eaten more. The lady that served us... More

On Saturday I opted for the steak and ale pie,it was huge with a crisp pastry case, succulent melt in the mouth beef and a rich gravy, served with just the right amount of home made chips and perfectly cooked veg to allow room for a...

Went today for Sunday lunch which was gorgeous. Beef fell apart, gravy tasty, homemade Yorkshire and plenty of side veg. Service brilliant. Was quiet which is surprising given how good it is. Come here regularly and never had a fault

We went to the Duke William on a midweek lunch time as we were impressed by the positive TripAdvisor comments. I was initially unhappy at having to pay to park on the car park at the front. Upon entering the pub it was very rustic with lots of character, we looked at the menu and it was 2 courses for... More

Eaten at The Duke a number of times, the food has always been excellent and good value, the restaurant is pleasant and airy, with friendly and helpful staff. The pub sells a good well kept range of real ale and is in the same square as other real ale pubs. which would be great if promoted as an ale trail.
