We went for dinner at Dukes. The pizzas are described as ‘wood oven pizzas’ on the menu. They were terrible. We ordered 4 pizzas and all 4 could not be eaten

Great location just off the front. Very pleasant local staff. Good menu choice and mid week special offers are good value. Excellent choice of beers and lagers. Relaxed informal atmosphere.

Good range of food and drink. Had early evening drinks this visit outside on the patio. Blankets available if it's chilly and dog friendly
