We had a lovely evening meal at the Duke William, and the staff were absolutely fantastic. The food itself was wonderful and the menu had a good variety of options. The restaurant area was cosy and comfortable and had a relaxed atmosphere which is perfect for all occasions. Would definitely recommend to others.

Lovely night with the wife! Very nice and cosy atmosphere. The staff are friendly and accommodating, the food was good and great ambience.

Well worth a visit, although a bit pricey, the area is lovely and the venue itself is worth it.

We went again for Christmas lunch and booking for 12 noon was a good time as it was very busy when we left. The food was excellent although I had the turbot (very good) but the accompanying vegetables (fennel and mashed potatoes) were uninspiring. I do like sprouts and carrots which would have improved it. Service was speedy and good.
Overall a lovely meal although I felt over priced. Ok if you had turkey but as a non meat eater there was not much for us and the desserts were not ones to remember especially as I didn't want christmas pudding.
If we go again next year hopefully it will be better value for money.

The Duke is always a preferred spot for a cosy, convivial and warm friendly place to spend a few hours with friends and family over drinks and or food. It's the local village pub everyone dreams of having nearby yet is so incredibly rare and rarely so well delivered as it is at the Duke.

If Soho House had a pub in the country, it would be the Duke.

Great seating areas, plenty of space so that you don't feel intruded upon, or as if you are intruding to the table next to you.
Lovely interior, tastefully done. Very pleasant staff.
The star of the show is without doubt the food. Absolutely amazing.
I took my wife for a birthday lunch, and she said it was one of the best meals ever. Everything cooked to perfection and full of flavour.

We went for a birthday meal and all left feeling full and satisfied! The pie and pint deal (Tueaday) was a lovely surprise and very tasty. We had puddings too which were delicious. The staff were extremely friendly without being 'too much and the general atmosphere in the pub was relaxed and comfortable.
We'll definitely be visiting again.

A perfect evening with friends made even more special by a superb meal.

Excellent from start to finish... we can't praise it high enough. Well done the brilliant chef(s) to the very attentive waiting staff, everything was perfect.

Have been twice before during day. We needed a quick booking as was in the area and the OpenTable app was superb and so instant. We only booked a couple of hours before we went and I half expected the staff to not have booking, but I was wrong. Great food, atmosphere and wine list. Lovely staff. Just perfect. Thank you
