In a town full of great food, this restaurant provides solid fare, nothing extraordinary, but if you enjoy quirky, hip, in the know places and a dog or two under your feet, you will love this place. Full of cool local folks.

The Duchess of Wisbeach was recommended to us by our hotel and although the exterior is nothing special, the interior is far better and the whole experience was enjoyable. We'd requested an early reservation as we hadn't eaten all day, and arrived about 5.45 for...More

We were told this was the hip Thursday night restaurant so we were eager to see what the hype was about. The entrance is the 'smoking section' so upon entering you are greeted in a room filled with smoke. The server was nice, albeit a...More

Hello, I live in a town called Wisbech, in Cambridgeshire, England. It use to be spelt Wisbeach and although it has dropped the 'A' its still pronounced the same way! My question is how did your restaurant and street location get the name of Wisbeach? Regards Jason.

The restaurant is located on Wisbeach Road in Sea Point so I would assume the name has something to do with that.
