Three of us went for dinner. It's an inviting decor and seemed very popular. I had the goats cheese salad, which was delicious & well presented. The others had the fish pie and a large margarita pizza. We all enjoyed our meals and it was service with a smile.

When we arrived we sat down outside with our dog, but then when going in to order found that dogs were welcome inside, so took the inside option. Warm welcome from staff, biscuit for the dog. Coffee and cake all at good prices considering we are on the sea front. Will definitely use when we walk around Sidmouth next time.

My husband and I went for a day trip to Sidmouth today in the beautiful sunshine. We had a walk up the beach with our 2 young cavapoos and decided to stop for some lunch.

I had dinner here with a friend while out walking the south west coast path. I have dietry issues with gluten and dairy all of which was no problem at all. I had the fish grilled instead of battered.

Super staff, venue and food! SO enjoyed our long weekend here. I can't wait to visit Dukes again. Our room, although not with a sea view was very good indeed.

Been to Sidmouth many times but it was our first visit to Dukes. I must say the menu was imaginative and good quality tasty food. Friendly staff and well behaved dog friendly.
