A few of us went for lunch on New Years Day. Spoilt for choice with the menu. All meals that arrived looked delicious and were good portions. Staff very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. After the unpleasantness of the previous owner/manager, I hope that people will start going to the Dukes again.

We have been to the Duke of Portland maybe four or five times over the last few weeks. It has usually been quite good but Boxing Day it was really very poor. My wife and sister had fish and chips which was over cooked and I had braised beef which was average to say the best. The place was empty... More

We've been to this Gastro pub many times over the years and it has always been busy. Sadly on this occasion it was almost empty which is a shame as the staff on Duty (Reece and Scarlett) plus the chef whose name I didn't get did an excellent job of making us feel welcome. We went on a coupon deal... More

The menu was adequate and cannot fault the food at all, lovely starter and good main course. We would have liked a look at the dessert menu and a coffe,... More

An excellent service for our group of 41 members, friends and family for our annual Christmas Meal. Despite the management changing twice whilst sorting out the booking the staff on the night were exceptionally helpful and efficient. The food from the Christmas menu was first class. Due to the large number of members present the manager closed the pup for... More

We were a group of friends meeting for a Christmas lunch, I hadn't visited for a few years but my last visit had been good so I was looking forward to it. We pre-booked and ordered off the Christmas Lunch menu at £20. I ordered, Pate, Turkey, Crumble. The pate had been obviously cut from a catering slab and was... More
