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.
Waiter was too busy chewing/eating something when I was trying to ask him a questions
The restaurant is lovely and great value for a city centre location, the only let down was that the glasses for drinking water were unclean and a little off putting. Had a great time overall bar that!
Overall it’s a fabulous restaurant to visit I’m a frequent visitor however it was my Birthday which the staff knew and did nothing to make my time special which was so disappointing also got my bill all wrong with the group I was with on the day, yes got over charged which again spoiled my Birthday experience at Dukes. Consequently visit just any day just not on your Birthday my advice.
Food was lovely, waited 90 minutes for the bill. Staff were rude and when ordering drinks asked ‘do you want anything or not’ - terrible and ruined the birthday experience.
Wonderful atmosphere, amazing food at affordable prices. Best roast dinner I’ve ever had.
Food came out cold to which the staff sorted straight away with freshly made replacement. Staff where friendly and overall was a great night we will try again
We were a party of 6 including 2 people with hearing difficulties. We were offered a table in the private dining area which was perfect for us all to hear each other. The waiter was very friendly and efficient and the food platter we shared to start was lovely offering a range of different foods to try. The main courses were also lovely although we were all quite full after the generous starter platter. We were very happy with the prices which offered very good value for money . We had a splendid night and would certainly recommend the restaurant
Lovely friendly place, food excellent always a happy vibe
Great night thank you celebrating birthday. The steak was the best I have ever eaten. Would return again....
Excellent service from staff, food was great. Will definitely be returning and I would highly recommend.
Good choice of small dishes, sharing platters and a good range of main courses. Good range of drinks, perhaps slightly more expensive than some other city centre bars. Lovely decor. Great waitress. Not too noisy so we could still have a conversation.
Only for drinks though - really nice place and good drinks menu but food was cold.
Thank you for your review Sophie, I'm sorry to read that your food was cold, please may I ask was this mentioned to the waiting staff or manager on the day? I would be very interested to know this. Please could you also let me know what dishes your ordered? Karen
I wouldn’t recommend it for dinner on a Saturday night. The music was so loud that non of us could hear each other! The medium/well filet steak came almost rare and was cold in the middle and took that long to come back that everyone else had finished their meals and I was sat eating alone.
Hi Lauren I'm sorry that you had an issue with your dish, I glad to hear that the team rectified the problem on the evening but I am sorry that there was delay so you were eating separately, Karen
The meal was absorbed with oil. It was awful. Why do the have to put oil on every meal they serve. I couldn’t eat it. My partners steak was fab.
Thank you for your review, I have also just responded to your review on TripAdvisor requesting your contact details, Karen
Really lovely place and food with good service.
Great service and food! Would definitely recommend.
Always a good day out at Dukes, especially sat outside at the back (if the suns out of course haha) Food outstanding and great service, many thanks !!
Delicious food, excellent service and great atmosphere!
I attended Dukes 92 on Sunday 8th September at 1.30pm, overall my experience was pleasant. The food was nice although some elements of the roast dinner was very salty of which I couldn't eat much. In relation to the service, we were seated and our drinks order was taken pretty much straight away. The wait for our drinks to arrive was around 20 minutes, which I found was not that great. Other than the wait for our drinks, everything was lovely. I would attend again.
We had a great time, same table, same weekend in 2020 please.
Good food if a little pricey for the amount you get. Considering it was so quiet when we were there the service was a little slow. The decoration inside was beautiful. Overall, a couple of niggles but I’d definitely go back.
Food was really good, the service was very poor. Waited 5 minutes to be acknowledge before being seated. Then had to wait a further 20 minutes to have our food and drinks order taken. Food arrived and still no drinks on the table. Asked for sauce took another 10 minutes to arrive.
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback Danielle, this is definitely not an experience we would hope for any of our customers. We would certainly like the chance to look into this further and would very much appreciate it if you could email me with what time you visited on the 31st August, Karen
Great food , great service the DJ on the night was playing great music , only problem was it was a little loud in the restaurant area was hard to hear each other speak
Good choice of food in enjoyable surroundings. Food and drinks not overpriced. I've experienced some really nice meals and never been disappointed.
We had a fabulous time at Dukes 92, food fantastic, staff were great - would have been outstanding if they weren't chewing gum whilst serving us!
Fantastic all round
Food was plentiful but at times a touch bland (BBQ ribs) but lamb kofte was nice.
Had to ask three times for tap water. Service was otherwise great.
Ambiance was amazing.
Overall really enjoyed our visit
First visit and will return. We really enjoyed it. Excellent food and choice and good value for money. Staff very attentive without being annoying. Lamb kofta was beautiful, would definitely recommend.
I had the steak and bruschetta, it was unreal. Just missed the happy hour but drinks were nice. Would definitely recommend!
Staff friendly, cocktails & food good great atmosphere
I came here for my birthday with a total party of 14, around late lunch time, I had an amazing time, the waitresses Amber and Fai were superb and attentive.
The food was wonderful and of generous portion sizes, I had the sea bass and sweet potatoes which was really delicious!
Thank you dukes for a lovely experience
Food was good . Wine was good. The service however just wasn’t there. The waitress seemed to be having a bad day ? No smiles or politeness for anyone.
Thank you for your review Julie, I have passed your comment onto the management team and they have spoken to all the staff members about being more attentive, Karen
The food was incredible (I can recommend the Spiced Lamb Kofta), the service was excellent and the whole ambiance was spot on. I also loved the decor. Dukes 92 has it all - good food, good service and a great place to meet and hang out with friends. I would definitely go back .... again and again.
Fantastic venue, food, service. Would definitely recommend to people and will back myself. Thank you
ALWAYS A MEGA MEAL..... Slight little hiccup but solved with tequilas and took off the bill.
See you soon.....
It was nice till they tried over charging us on the bill £28 bottle of wine 🍷 which when a checked they didn’t have a £28 bottle of wine on the menu
Such a good meal and drink, defiantly be returning and friends first time, she was super impressed
Great varied menu, lovely food and setting. We had a fantastic meal and will certainly return.
Unfortunately, the service was slow and the food that arrived was not exactly what was ordered. The fault was corrected, though, and the food was actually quite nice. It was so noisy in the restaurant that we struggled to hear each other talk, in spite of sitting side by side. On the plus side, the atmosphere was very happy.
Good food, good atmosphere especially on a sunny day
