The staff were most helpful and exceptionly pleasent, nothing being to much trouble. The food was very good and plentiful. Well behaved furry friends are also most welcome and well looked after.

Have eaten here a number of times now. Very good, thin base pizzas-ample toppings and very tasty. Good selection of wines and beers, but limited ciders. Nice location in the conservatory and blankets are available if you want to sit outside in the beer garden....More

Went for drinks there very well located just on the seafront near all the town centre shops. Clean, nice staff, really nice outside seating area in the sun, just like a high summer day. Lovely unbelievable for Oct 24th ! Recommended.

This is not our first visit nor will it ever our last. Everything about here is good - the rooms, the staff and the food. Great location and it has parking. Cannot wait for our next visit.

Left it a bit late for lunch so thought we'd try Dukes. Massive portions which seemed to make most customers happy. I couldn't say I didn't like the vegetables as they were too pale and tasted of nothing! Extremely poor.

Apologises, I didn't see your question. We had turbot on the menu last week and it was definitely turbot that is served. We have many delivery notes which state that turbot was delivered to Dukes and this can be traced back... More
