“cheap & cheerful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

Very good value for money. Food was perfectly acceptable for the price although the chef doesn't understand a rare steak. The young lady in charge on the night was extremely personable and was quite happy to chat away.

“You know what you are getting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

This is a chain pub, Greene King, with a typical chain pub menu. That said the barman was very friendly and helpful, the food was delivered quickly and the steak was cooked to perfection even the peas were edible, a rump steak and pint for £6.99, great value.

“Nice Fish and Chips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

Nice Fish and Chips, shame about the microwaved Lemon Merangue pie, though! Nice pint of Green King IPA went down well.

“Disappointing roast”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

I went to The Duke of Monmouth to have a roast and it was one of the worst roasts I have ever had in my life. I was starved I had no food and was very excited. Then the lovely waiter came out with my food and you should never judge a book by its cover but I immediately did. First of all The chicken was very big which was an advantage but it was very dry and brown. The gravy was very watery and tasted like hand sanitizer. The potatoes were overcooked and immediately went soggy as they were surrounded by the island of gravy. The carrots were as soft as a sponge and turned into mush. The Peas were old and very wrinkly, too wrinkly. Overall the diet coke and the Yorkshire pudding weas great. I spent £8 and was still hungry, beautiful day but unhappy stomach.

“Good english pub”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

I went to the Duke for a quick dinner, it was quite late but they were able to feed me... the waitress was very friendly, although not very experienced (her first day in the job !), can't say the same for the manager.
Food ok, price as well.
