With its most recent refurbishment Dukes can now properly call itself a venue with two bars, three private events spaces, a grill restaurant, excellent smoking facilities, canalside terrace and balcony overlooking the canal basin. Dukes continued appeal relies on its ability to transform from a relaxed, family friendly environment by day to a vibrant and stylish bar and grill by night.
The space has been extended and refurbished since its opening in 1991 and inside its interior combines contemporary features and its trademark antique furniture.

Been here for years and unfortunately do not think i will be coming in the future. Service was rude and unfriendly. Too busy messing around with each other to provide good service. The app based service meant we were charged for something which never arrived.
Terrible let down for somewhere that used to be a really good restaurant.
Mistakes with drinks service to start with to start with but soon got sorted after complaint. Overall enjoyable
fantastic staff, excellent seating arrangements, and brilliant food.
Look forward to visiting again.
Great venue, staff and food. Highly recommend, we will be back!
Had a lovely late Sunday dinner with my partner.
It was his first time at Dukes and enjoyed everything that evening.
We’ll definitely be back again.
Recommend the steak sandwich, and the bruschetta. And to drink- the French Fancy!
Fabulous food & friendly staff. Lovely place to go for a family meal
They sat us on a dirty table .We were ignored by the staff , we had to constantly find someone for menus , drinks etc..
We were shown to our table which was right in the corner. We had to pull the table out to make space to be able to sit down to which a waitress said “no clue why you’ve done that to the table”… The table we sat at was filthy from the last person who sat there & it took an additional 20 minutes after being seated to be wiped down. Because we were in the corner, we had no signal to order anything. When our food came, half of the order was missing & no member of staff noticed this until we’d pretty much eaten our whole meal… Won’t be returning.
We sat outside and the heaters under the veranda were a bit to warm, but after we ate we moved out to the table at the side and it was lovely
Ordered sirloin and ribeye and everything was amazing! Sauce, salad and chips were amazing too. Great selection of drinks too. Very nice inside
Okay food - disappointed starters came with mains as mains were then cold once starters were finished. No staff clearing dirty plates away from any tables but continuing to serve drinks. Okay overall
I've been to Dukes 92 a number of times during the post Covid reopening. They've delivered a consistent and great service with excellent food every single time.
Well done to the team and keep it up.
Excellent venue, service was fast and efficient and food was amazing.
Awful service, not willing to help, moody, waited over an hour for 1 drink, no apology or nothing
It was quite busy which means we had to wait a long time for the food and drinks to arrive. Food was good but service not great
Food & drinks were amazing + the atmosphere was 10/10
First impression not good. Not greeted & shown to a table had to find someone! However food arrived promptly & very good
Service was shocking. Food awful. So disappointed
Really enjoyable! Staff were great, atmosphere was nice and chilled but not dead, food was incredible. I had the halloumi burger which was lovely, my dad had the Lancashire cheese and onion pie and loved it. Will be back :)
management is changed, it used to be free friendly before. whole team is almost new, empty seats still they not accepting walking customers,
Good is always lovely, staff friendly and welcoming
The food was really good; definitely would recommend to others
Excellent all round.staff very friendly and helpful
Hi I’d been to the duke92 several years ago and yet again was not disappointed
thanks for making our evening rememberable
Great service, we bought two cakes to celebrate birthdays and the staff were great at keeping them in the kitchen for us until we had eaten and then two of the team took time to bring them out and sing happy birthday at our table (even though we could see you had a busy day) the two ladies on the door welcoming people and showing them to the table was extra friendly and helpful. Thank you so much for making the day special.
Known to be very good.. on this occasion (party of 11), food was lukewarm. The jerk chicken was burnt hard, the starters and mains came irregular, drinks failed to turn up, cutlery had to be chased and other tables orders kept landing on our table and left there (rather than being disposed). It was a real mishmash.. it's a poor experience and we should have turned everything away but the delays effected other ongoing plans.
the waiter was in automaton mode.. no thought to bringing cutlery or condiments which meant the food got cold while we waited. my cheese toastie and the spring of shrivelled salad leaf looked very sad. the courgette on the vegan board looked shrivelled. coffees came without spoons or sugar (they were espressos) and again got cold while we waited. that said, the terrace was very pleasant although the tables needed wiping down. obviously no thought given to that.
Food is great!
Service really good
Disappointed that you had no meditaranian fever tree tonic light with a great gin like Tanquaray 10 instead I had to take an orange flavoured fatimans tonic.
Please keep fever tree down n stock.
We were really looking forward to trying Dukes 92 but were sadly really disappointed. The service was pretty much non existent - upon arrival we were told we could order on the app if we wanted food quickly. After 15 minutes when no member of staff had come anywhere near our table we assumed the only way to get served must be to use the app. The drinks arrived promptly followed by the food a while later. I got up and went looking for a member of staff to ask for a replacement bun for my sisters burger, was told it would just be a minute. 10 minutes later I got up again to interrupt the 3 members of staff standing by the till chatting and using their mobiles to again ask for a replacement bun. This was duly brought. My husband ordered his steak medium rare but it was well done and uneaten. I pointed this out to the girl who cleared our plates and she said ‘you’re right that’s not medium rare, you should have said something’ - if anyone had come to check how the food was we would have done. No offer of dessert/coffee and not one member of staff said goodbye or thanked us as we left.
Really good good and such a nice vibe going through the place
My experience was a real mixed bag.
On the whole the staff where lovely and couldn’t do enough. Bar staff friendly and chatty. The cocktails were great.
There was a 30 minute wait for drinks from ordering off the app.
The food came out cold and I was served a glass of red wine in a cracked dirty glass. The waitress did apologise and changed my drink.
The toilets were filthy. No toilet roll and blood on the seat as well as overflowing smelly sanitary bins.
A few of the wedding guests were rude and obnoxious and were passing bags of drugs openly. One particular man who was wasted and was openly rude to the staff and other customers which overshadowed the evening. At one point I overheard him call a lady an old c**t. He was spoken too by security. Real shame because the DJ was brill and overall there is a nice vibe.
Excellent service from jack! Defo go back, thanks for having us
The food and service was excellent the young girl serving us was extremely polite the door staff were a great laugh too and very welcoming
Lovely place ,staff so friendly . Taken to our table straight away ,asked did we want to sit outside ,as I'd booked an inside table ,we decided to stay inside . Our order was taken almost immediately and wasn't long before it was in front us and I have to say we were not disappointed . I would recommend Dukes to everyone ,great place to meet up with friend ,inside or outside and the food is excellent.
Thank you Dukes 92 we will be back .
This was my wife’s 60th birthday celebration and we couldn’t fault the food or service and if you have Jack looking after you then you are sure to have an easy and enjoyable time.
Came with my friends and had drinks and lunch. What let us down was one of the outdoor waitresses on the terrace she was rude and drinks came with 10 mins difference between each one.
Our table wasn’t great (in the shade) the staff were really helpful moving us as soon as another came free. Great atmosphere
Fantastic Sunday lunch , one of the nicest we have had.
Service was fantastic and atmosphere was buzzing.
Definitely be visiting again x
