In a lovely setting, with plenty of woodland walks nearby, we had an excellent family lunch. Good pub grub - pleasant service.

Went here for Sunday roast today, based on favourable reviews. I'm sad to say what we received was akin to something you'd find in the supermarket ready meal section, bottom shelf. Vegetables were reheated from frozen, roast potatoes dry and hard outside, and the meat was not freshly cut and served either. At a price of 12.95, not the quality... More

We really like this pub but we do find the lunch food menu expensive. However, the Sunday lunch menu is very good and generous portions. We would like to visit more at lunchtime but you need to bring the prices down a little.

Another lovely meal at the duke of wellington! Have been visiting this pub for almost 10 years now and have never had a bad meal, the service is always very good and everything is reasonably priced! Also the fact that it's dog friendly and the staff are such dog lovers is brilliant! Looking forward to our next visit!

Food arrived lukewarm, service very slow even on a non-busy day. When I complained the staff were rude, asked to see owner/manager who was also equally as rude. I would advise people not to bother spending your money on overpriced food and abysmal service.

We popped in here midweek in the late afternoon for a quick drink and hopefully a snack. I knew that the pub normally stops food before 3 ock and frankly the pub was virtually empty and it was well past three. After getting our beers I asked if any food was available and the woman behind the bar explained that... More

First the only plus the lady who served us she wes great. I ordered a 'special' off the board thinking it would be better than the printed menu --- a big mistake I can only describe the dish has a budget Brake Brothers meal which you might get as a lunchtime deal if a Marstons or Table Table. The pub... More
