BRITAIN’S FIRST AND ONLY CERTIFIED ORGANIC PUB
We opened in 1998 and our ethical business ideals remain the same today: we serve delicious organic food and drink carefully sourced from independent producers, while keeping our environmental impact and food miles super-low. In fact, over 90% of our fresh fruit and veg comes from organic farms in the South East of England and East Anglia. We change our menu daily according to what’s available – if something isn’t in season, you won’t find it on the menu.

We had an excellent meal, served reasonably quickly and graciously. Particularly imaginative first courses. No space for puds! The only thing not up to standard was the organic French sauvignan described as ' very ordinary.'
We decided to eat our meal in the bar area, which had a much better ambiance and was more spacious and airy. The restaurant has quite a low ceiling and feels somehow 'squashed, ' though it was not full.

The food was very sub standard and incredibly salty. Especially considering the prices. You’d expect a lot better quality for the money they charge.

Our table was booked for 16.30 and when we arrived the pub was in full swing with Christmas Lunches, our table was out the back which felt like another world; more intimate and quieter and was perfect for chatting.
My starter of chicken wings was supurb and the veg that came with the roast were deliciously different.
The juice of the day was amazing and our waitress recommended a lovely wine.

We went for Sunday lunch. The food was ok. Good vegetarian option and dessert, though the roast lamb had a slightly ecclectic mix of side dishes (not sure the paprika roasted cauliflower really goes with the rest of the dish). Unfortunately service was slow and I would not normally mind this considering it was a busy Sunday lunch, however our waitress pulled a face when we had to remind her to bring water for the table which was unnecessary.

A basic error of service led to my family and I having a poor experience at the Duke of Cambridge. I booked a table, wanting to have a dinner and also a round of drinks. However as soon as we sat down we were told curtly that they had another booking and would need the table back by 8.30, which wasn't feel long enough for a relaxed meal. We felt pressured and unwelcome, which led to us eating quickly and leaving. We didn't enjoy our meal, which was a shame as the food was obviously good.

The simple question 'what would you like from this evening?' instead of 'we need this table back at 8.30' would have made all the difference as I don't think our needs were that hard to accommodate. As two of us are blind, it would have been really great if they could have offered to help us find another table for drinks but their only communication was that they wanted us gone by a certain time.

It feels harsh to leave a poor review for such a small thing, but I'm afraid it affected the entire experience of the Duke of Cambridge for us. The prices are high, and while that is in part because of the quality ingredients and cooking, I feel that should also be reflected in considerate and welcoming service. I wouldn't either go back or recommend the place.

I’ve eaten at the Duke of Cambridge several times. The staff are friendly without being intrusive and service is prompt and responsive. The food varies from good to very good - not quite outstanding but reliably enjoyable - and the wine list is very good, with some interesting and unusual choices at reasonable (for London) prices.

The food and wine here is wonderful but unfortunately the welcome and service didn’t match the quality of the dinner. Staff were unfriendly and rushed and it took a long time to be served. When our order was finally taken the food arrived quickly but the starters came with the mains. The service charge was very high considering the staff weren’t slightly attentive. Would recommend for food but not for a nice evening out.

Excellent and very tasty food, and I loved knowing that it was all organically grown and carefully sourced. I would have liked perhaps a little more choice for main courses as a vegetarian. I ended up getting two starters instead of starter and main, and actually it was plenty for me - and all delicious.

Staff were very friendly, but perhaps could have been a little more confident & professional in selling the various options on the menu. No-one checked everything was OK once dishes arrived (fortunately in our case it was, but I think this is a good practice for any restaurant anyway).

The main bar is pretty noisy if you want to have dinner conversation, but the back room is spacious and a bit quieter, with a nice ambience all of its own, and we enjoyed it there. Not the cheapest place, but given the quality of produce and care in sourcing fantastic organic ingredients, it was worth it.
