Just stopped off on speck for Sunday lunch. There was only four people in this pub on a Sunday lunchtime so we was a bit dubious . surprisingly the dinner was lovely. So much effort put in it was just a shame there was nobody there to enjoy it.

Went to The Duke William for a post wedding party. What a great place. Loved the upstairs function room and the staff/landlord were very friendly.

We had a fantastic afternoon at The Duke William. The after wedding party was just wonderful. The Landlord was lovely, amenable and really looked after us. The function room and atmosphere was so welcoming as were the staff. What a fabulous day in a great place. We had a wonderful time celebrating this very special day here.

We held our post wedding celebration here on Saturday 5 November. From start to finish our experience was absolutely fantastic.

We went to "do" at The Duke a week after their negative reviews but found the complete opposite. Good food, good service and friendly staff. Wouldn't hesitate to go there again.
