We popped into this pub on our way home and we were greeted by a really friendly gentleman and lady. We stayed for about an hour, had a couple of drinks and enjoying the cheese and cracker nipples on the bar. It was really nice watching the bar staff laughing and joking with the customers as they came in. Nearly... More

We found The Dukes Head on TripAdvisor; we were looking for a pub between Deal and Maidstone for a family birthday celebration. We weren't dissapointed. 6 adults and 2 toddlers where well accomadated and between us tried the Lamb, Beef and Chicken optiobs which were all delicious, with tender meat. There's a child roast dinner available too, which wasn't obvious... More

After reading the good reviews about this place we decided to come here over other nearby pubs !! We regretted that as soon as we stepped inside !! The barman was not happy to see us and told us to hurry up and order when we asked about food and said you've got ten minutes !! The food was nothing... More

Thank you for writing review although most of it is untrue, The barman ( owner ) did not tell you to hurry up, he did say that we only serve until 2pm but if you would like to order we can get it started. I'm sorry you found the food " nothing special "but when asked as you were leaving... More

This establishment (our Local, which we often visit) retains a proper Pub atmosphere. They offer food, within defined hours from a simple but enjoyable menu served in a quieter part of the Pub. Good beers available. A welcoming fire in winter. Great take away fish and chips too.

We stopped for lunch at 1.50pm. Lucky for us as they stop taking orders at 2.00. However, the atmosphere was warm and we were made to feel most welcome. We ordered steak puddings that came with lashings of tasty gravy. Only the cauliflower was slightly overcooked for my pallet but the broccoli was perfect. We have visited there before and... More

Was in search of a country pub for the pair of us to have dinner and stumbled upon the Dukes Head. We both enjoyed fish and chips for lunch. A pleasant family run establishment. Hope to visit again in the future.

After a walk in the nearby woods with our dog we wanted a drink and some lunch so we thought we'd try this pub. We both had a Ploughmans which exceeded our expectations! The landlord was really nice and friendly. Just a tip, they stop serving food at 2pm on Sundays!
