Great little restaurant, feels quite classy but prices were very reasonable. Food and service was excellent and even though they had a vegan option on the menu they did offer that the chef could come up with something else if i liked. Most importantly for me us that everyone else loved their non vegan dinner too, the starters were exciting... More

After a 5 hour drive from up North, good food and a drink was just what we needed and Dukes provided just that. The fish and chips are fantastic! The service is great. A lovely place that I would definitely return to

We had a lovely starter but I have to say both our fish dishes were very overcooked and the vegetables were very undercooked. There were lots of Christmas parties eating so didn't complain.

Popped in on the off-chance there would be space on a busy Christmas late night shopping in Sidmouth - we were offered a table for 45 minutes before the reservation arrived. That was OK, we were served quickly but didn't feel overly rushed, in fact we were grateful they fitted us in. Food pretty good, although not outstanding.

Thank Ron P
