Having been there a few months ago when we had a great meal and great service we thought we would give it another try. We had a Groupon deal which was excellent value. Once again the food was lovely. Lots of choices for starters and mains but only 3 choices for dessert. However, what will stop us from returning is... More

This pub looks very nice and raises expectations, but I find the menu rather limited and slightly quirky whereby I don't find it easy to choose what I fancy. The interior always feels a bit cold and lacks cosiness.

We hadn't been to the Duke of Portland since it reopened under new ownership but used a Groupon voucher for Sunday lunch. I was really hoping that the quality was as good as this has always been one of my favourite places to eat - restaurant quality food, not the usual bland 'gastropub' meals. We weren't disappointed! Although this was... More

We visited with friends for Sunday lunch, on arrival we were told by the Manager that he had been let down by three staff, whilst being sympathetic we did worry that he wouldn't be able to cope seeing as he was acting barman, waiter, and server! it turned out he did a sterling job, he was attentive and helpful and...

A pleasant experience from beginning to end. We've dined here on several occasions & always found the food & service very likeable. My only negative comment would be is that the whole place feels a little bare & could do with some "cosying up" Portions are a little on the smaller side for those with large appetites but overall a...

I had 2 lunchtime visits in one week and both times the food and the service were really good. It's a nice, spacious area so no sitting on top of the next table. The staff were all very friendly and seemed happy in their work. There's a good choice on the menu and it's not over priced. Will definitely return.... More

We booked a Groupon meal, but when we arrived the new management had no information about us. However they made us very welcome and the food was excellent, happily cooking my salmon main course without any chorizo in it. Lovely friendly hosts, venue very easy to locate, definitely a place to return.
