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.

Great ingredients, food and service. We have used Riverford since 2007 for our organic fruit vegetables and meat.

This was just below our Airbnb and it was the best meal we had in London. The service was top notch as well!

Very Good value for money but a little disappointed as I was expecting the dishes to be tastier and exciting. It was just a little bland taste wise. It’d rate the food 3.5/5 just because my expectations were rather high

Really brilliant Sunday roast. Great service. You could taste how good quality the organic produce was. The back dining area felt a tiny bit cramped but it wasn’t too crowded so it was fine. Will be back!

Very nice food in the relaxed atmosphere of a pub. We had a great salmon and a very tasty shepherd pie. Very responsive to dietary constraints. Minus: quite noisy.

They use the best available organic ingredients but at a high price-mark. You really get what you pay for, delicious food with lots of flavours. Great company ethos too!

Delicious organic food. We had the crab and leek gratin to start, which were both very light and fresh.
We both had the spring risotto which was amazingly green, fresh and felt indulgent and healthy at the same time. The salted caramel, coffee and shortbread was a lovely dessert, not too sweet and ended the meal nicely. The cheese and membrillo was also excellent. Great staff, our waitress noticed we had been given a table next to a loud table and suggested an alternative. They were attentive and friendly even though it was a busy Saturday night. Definitely want to go back!

A nice rustic pub/restaurant. The food is reasonable and tastes fresh, however the portion sizes are pretty small, the menu is limited and it's expensive. Not great value for money.

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.
