Service excellent, food very good, possibly pandemic-inspired enhanced outdoor dining area with slate tiles, overhear auning and banquettes to the side etc. Seemingly popular way/weigh-stop for cyclist and running groups - so fleatingly had the air of a gym. Interior retains huge character and imagine it offers a enrichingly different but complimentary experience in the winter. I'd definitiely try it and will return. Part of the intrige was that it was I believe an exisiting Rock Salt Group aquisition, now consolodated with the majority of the former Ramblin's pubs into a great portfolio of pubs in many ways menu/style quite similar. Whilst this might have revived East and South Kent's pub eateries, it's also perhaps made them more alike?

Some butter was brought with our bread which had a meat substance tasting similar to marmite mixed into it. Nothing was explained as to what it was yet my wife is vegetarian! Items were forgotten despite being ordered and drinks took a very long time to come after ordering. But if you can put up with terrible service, the food really was great! Of course, we all hope the errors in service are a one off!

Normally the skate tastes wonderful but on our recent visit the fish had an overpowering ammonia taste. We should have returned the skate but everyone else had received their food. Maybe the chef should have smelt the fish as it was overpowering.

Sometimes it depends what you choose from the menu, skate wings for both of us with samphire which was incredibly salty (yes, with hindsight it would be wouldn't it). We also had sides of chips which were pre-salted in the kitchen, not that hot either. The server would have replaced them, but it interrupts the dining cycle. Perhaps we were expecting too much from our first visit to the Duke William, just felt that the prices and the food weren't quite in sync. Our arrival probably coincided with peak customers but we weren't welcomed for a while and then waited whilst a bar manager tapped away on his screen rather than talking to us or showing us to our table. Got me off to an irritatingly poor start! The village of Ickham itself is a great place to visit and I'm sure regulars at the pub have a great time.

The food quality was way above normal stodgy pub fare - well presented, cooked perfectly and with some flair. Definitely in the higher level of gastro. The prices are really good too. Great service, lovely pub inside, easy parking. What else could you want?

The staff were brilliant and couldn't do enough for us. The beer was great and reasonably priced. Overall a great experience and I can't wait to eat here again. A fantastic meal in a gorgeous pub at a good price. Can't ask for more than that.

Lovely atmosphere however there was a huge party behind us which made it difficult to hear our own conversations (that was the only downside!)

Unfortunately on the night there were service issues but to be fair once the manager realised what was happening it was sorted . We will certainly be returning. The food really was good , the team admitted their mistakes , no excuses, and were genuinely sorry for service .

The heaters had been removed since the heat wave my husband was told. We were left seated outside for 25mins before a drink order was taken…a few people arrived after us and were served before,l. We were then informed we could sit inside the bar area as it turned out the quiz night was cancelled. We were baffled, how could this take priority when diners are paying for moderately high end food. Our bill was £90 for 3 people with two courses and drinks. My husband paid for his drinks at the bar as there was little service. The food was of good quality …if you like lettuce, I ordered the lamb rump which came with potatoes and a huge pile of lettuce with ragged edges. The staff were polite but seemed overwhelmed… we were asked to pay our bill before our desserts arrived and left before 9pm. Overall our experience was ok if not a little bizarre, improvements in priorities and service would definitely help this establishment.
