Visited for a Christmas meal with friends from the village. Food was fabulous and very well presented. Service attentive and friendly. Well worth a visit, let's get our village pub busy!

Having been there a few months ago when we had a great meal and great service we thought we would give it another try. We had a Groupon deal which was excellent value. Once again the food was lovely. Lots of choices for starters and mains but only 3 choices for dessert. However, what will stop us from returning is... More

This pub looks very nice and raises expectations, but I find the menu rather limited and slightly quirky whereby I don't find it easy to choose what I fancy. The interior always feels a bit cold and lacks cosiness.

We hadn't been to the Duke of Portland since it reopened under new ownership but used a Groupon voucher for Sunday lunch. I was really hoping that the quality was as good as this has always been one of my favourite places to eat - restaurant quality food, not the usual bland 'gastropub' meals. We weren't disappointed! Although this was... More

Went here on a Groupon deal a couple of weeks ago and had a really good lunch. Now under new management with an excellent young chef,the food was home cooked and came out piping hot.For main I had the cheese pie with beans and mash,just reminded me of school,fabulous. Would definitely recommend.

We visited with friends for Sunday lunch, on arrival we were told by the Manager that he had been let down by three staff, whilst being sympathetic we did worry that he wouldn't be able to cope seeing as he was acting barman, waiter, and server! it turned out he did a sterling job, he was attentive and helpful and...

A pleasant experience from beginning to end. We've dined here on several occasions & always found the food & service very likeable. My only negative comment would be is that the whole place feels a little bare & could do with some "cosying up" Portions are a little on the smaller side for those with large appetites but overall a...

I had 2 lunchtime visits in one week and both times the food and the service were really good. It's a nice, spacious area so no sitting on top of the next table. The staff were all very friendly and seemed happy in their work. There's a good choice on the menu and it's not over priced. Will definitely return.... More
