Booked a table with my wife for the 23rd Dec. We have been quite a few times before for just drinks and twice for food. Service was great and the food excellent. We had the seafood platter to share, slow cooked belly pork and a mushroom stroganoff. Usual good selection of real ales.
My heart goes out to the staff and owners in these times struggling with not knowing when they can open and for how long. They were in Tier 2 on the 23rd having just reopened the previous weekend only to be going back into Tier 3 on Boxing Day ruining their plans for Christmas and the New Year. We will be supporting the Duke of Oxford as and when they can open in the coming months. Thanks to all the staff for a lovely meal and night out.

The best place I’ve eaten in Weston Super Mare. Fabulous Sunday roast, great ambience, dogs welcome, good bottle of wine, outstanding service.
Perfect, we’ve vowed to make it a monthly outing.

Staff were very accommodating, first table they showed us to was too noisy but straight away they sorted a quieter one. Food was very good , didn’t have to wait too long considering how busy it was. Good range of drinks and cocktails.

Stopped for pit stop on way back from Cornwall. Beautiful brownie! Best yet.
Chicken Thai curry was tasty too
Quiet in the pub - imagine that it will be lively during normal times

This was our second visit, this time there was a young man murdering the Piano, which was annoying, but the staff soon realised and asked him to wait till we'd stopped eating. Other than that it was a really good experience, good food, beer and surroundings would definitely recommend, we will be going back there in December

A quirky yet homely pub. The staff are friendly and the table service operated well. Very impressed with the Covid measures that have been put in place. My partner and I enjoyed our pre dinner drinks.
A request. Please bring back the pork scratching with the homemade apple sauce. They were fabulous.

Good service. Only had a limited menu with a few roasts and some other bits because it was Sunday. They did do a child’s roast for me for a fiver which wasn’t on the menu, so was happy with that. Food was good. Didn’t have to wait long. Good selection of beers.

We had fish and chips which were delicious. Really great chips. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Everything seemed clean. There were a lot of people there, so it was quite noisy, but service was still great.

We had a lovely lunch. I would describe it as perfect! The food was super, the staff were attentive and very friendly. The drinks were great.
I really love this place for food. It is by far the best place to eat in Weston-Super-Mare and the surrounding area.

Food was excellent value for money with the added benefit of taking advantage of the Eat out government scheme. Manager was friendly and welcoming but service was very slow. He did apologise genuinely for the delay. It was very busy and I would have liked the music level a little lower more like a restaurant ambience. I would recommend the restaurant as the menu was varied and everything was presented well. Hopefully when a little less busy the wait time for food would be quicker.

It was really nice in here.
Food was lovely.
Only downside was that our table was very close to others, so we didn't feel as though we had much privacy.

Dealing with the challenge of 'new normal' empathetically and with common sense. Friendly, knowledgeable staff serve an intelligent selection of beers and lager to an easy, mixed crowd. It's our new local. Very impressed.

The bar staff were very friendly and efficient. I visited the Duke of Oxford during the 'Eat in to Help out' scheme, so I cannot complain about the price at all.

I was in two minds about ordering fish and chips as I would usually only order them at a chippy, but both the fish and chips tasted so fresh and were beautifully crispy.

food was great , the young waiter was very good but the time we waited for the food was so long , quite a few tables were moaning . The waiter was apologetic. We were ok with the time as we were not in a rush and would go back again but think they need a few more chefs in kitchen next time though

Great pub, my only minor moan is that my mixed grill has come out well done on several occasions when I ordered it as a medium rare, last time it all came over cooked and was missing the black pudding entirely.
