We were staying in Little Hallingbury and saw the menu in the guest info book. We phoned and were fitted in no problem. The service was excellent, efficient but not intrusive. Wide menu range to choose from including interesting dishes, not just standard pub fare....More

Hello there, we are a dog friendly pub & allow dogs in the bar and garden area, however we do reserve the dining room as a no-go area for dogs! Our menu is available through out. Hope to see you soon. Regards, the Dukes

The Duke's Head serves modern British cuisine in the heart of the quintessential Essex village. 'Village Pub & Dining' explains our concept perfectly. A warm, friendly, atmospheric pub, which happens to do excellent, locally sourced food! Along with friendly, helpful service, perfect pints and very good wine, this is somewhere that anyone would like to spend a few hours. Relaxing on our sunny patio under pretty parasols, with the children running in the garden or hiding in the quaint tree house or warming you feet in front of a roaring fire, with your dog by your side! Whatever the weather, a warm welcome is always guaranteed at The Duke's Head.
