Have been to the dukes head at least a dozen times since we moved to Crawley down 2.5years ago. Whenever we want guaranteed good food & service this is the place we go. Never had a bad meal & the staff have always been so friendly.

My husband booked us in here for Valentines as he knows I love it here, it certainly didn't disappoint as some places do on special occasions, there was a fantastic 3 course set menu, with a glass of prosecco to start, the service was fantastic but not intrusive, the food was great, and an added touch was they had kept...

Amazing Sunday lunch, and the waiter was very accommodating to us changing options around. Was slightly cold in the restaurant, and everywhere else was full but the waiter moved a heater over to us and we soon warmed up. Great service and the desserts were to die for.

Never been here before but I have to say we will be back!! Food was excellent! Service exemplary!! We were made so welcome, the food as I say was great and good value too. What made it was the personal service though. We had to wait for nothing and Nothing was too much trouble. I highly recommend this pub!!!!

Not as good as last time, waiter rather sullen, very noisy, loud music with an annoying thumping beat couldn't hear yourself talk. Lemon tart looked good, but bland and stodgy. What a shame
