Turned up at this restaurant without a booking, which was not a problem, a very warm welcome and friendly staff. Enjoyed the food which was excellent and good value for money A very nice setting, with a great choice of food If your looking for a restaurant, then give this one a go, its well worth the trip.

We often eat at the Dukes head and always enjoy the food & service. Decor is getting tired, but the place was really bright & lit up by the beautiful smile of our favourite waitress Tracy. Welcome back, you was missed. Highly recommend this restaurant.

A most enjoyable Sunday Lunchtime at The Dukes Head in Crawley Down with friends. The Trio Sunday Roast was exceptional, the meat was cooked to perfection and very tasty. The drinks were reasonably priced and the Staff were very friendly and attentive.

Stopped off to meet two friends for lunch although they had started when I arrived. I enjoyed an excellent chicken liver parfait which arrived very quickly after I ordered it. The waitress felt that three people on a table for two was uncomfortable for us and offered us a table for four nearby which we moved to. Two cups of... More
