Busy restaurant area for Friday lunch. Clean, spacious, friendly and fast service. The food is good, but be warned the servings are large portions. Chips are superb. Steak was tender and tasty, as was the fish fillets. Salad was fresh and lightly dressed. Drinks included good choice of beer, wine and soft drinks. The place can become a little noisy... More

Every fourtnight we old mates look forward to the best value steak in town. The beer battered chips are to die for and we will even eat the salad.

First visit to this pub. Very busy on a Tuesday night because of the $15 for 2 chicken schnitzels, but service was quick and staff friendly. Tasty nibbles to start with and meals a good size. Good atmosphere for a group function and platters seen on other tables looked inviting. Worth a visit!

The meal was very good although the pork was a little underdone. Should be falling apart. Service was good and a good quality pub meal.

Lunch out, group of six. Lady taking order at the bistro was quite unpleasant and very direct. Good customer service goes a long way and we certainly were not seeing any of that. We were seated quickly however were told we had a 40minutes wait on our lunch time meal with a less than full restaurant. The meal was average,... More

We decided as we were in the area to have a meal at The Duke (have been before). Had no problems getting a table and the staff were very polite and helpful. The food is good pub food with a good specials board. Good atmosphere. Would recommend

The team, family and supporters gathered at The Duke for post match celebrations. The place was noisy given the winning festivities but the friendly staff took it all in their stride. The bistro food was high quality, the beveridge selection plentiful and the overall atmosphere great.
