The Duke was recommended to us by the owners of the cottage we were staying in and that recommendation is well worth passing on. Very comfortably furnished, if all you want is a nice place for a drink then you will not be disappointed. There is a really good selection of real ale along with wines, spirits and soft drinks. Amongst our party we tried two of the ales and they were top class. We also decided to eat and the food choice was excellent, as was the quality and service. According to the menu, most days it is also possible to order takeaway pizza.
Apparently this is a very nice destination during the summer when you can enjoy the outdoors (really, when did we last have a summer?) but as we were there in January in the evening it was too dark to see outside. What there is on the inside though is a great skittle alley. If you are a fan or just want to try and old English pub game then this is for you. It looks as though the tables for those eating might sometimes be extended into the skittle area so if you are going to visit specifically for the game it might be best to check first that it is available. The welcome we received was friendly and genuine and I would certainly return at the first opportunity. If you pay a visit then have a great time as we definitely did.
