The food was lovely, very good value, and the service was perfect, my only comment is that it was a little cold, probably because we were seated in the largest part of the open dining area and only a couple of other diners were present at the time we were their. Otherwise lovely relaxing place to meet up and have something nice to eat. Thank you

Always a friendly welcome from staff at The Duke. I had one of the pizzas which definitely fill you up.

Everyone was happy with their meal and was suitably stuffed.

We booked a table as we knew there would be a band playing, so we went with friends.
The band was brilliant, service at the bar and bringing our food out was excellent and very friendly.
Will definitely book again.

A long wait to get a rather small piece of salmon although it tasted lovely all members of our party thought it was certainly very small

We come here anytime we want a nice Sunday roast. Always lovely good value for money. I have a very fussy child who is always well catered for. Child friendly and helpful staff.

We were a group of 3 adults and 2 children for Sunday lunch and had booked, on line, to sit in the Restaurant. In the event we had to settle for a Table in the Bar area. We checked on arrival that the child menu was available on the £1 deal, this was confirmed as being so. The order was taken by a different waitress who it appears nominated adult portions for all. Whilst everything was very pleasant and the food excellent, the unexpected additional cost rather took the 'shine' off the event and resulted in this rather negative review.

Lovely setting and pub had parking. Food was superb along with the service. Would have preferred no music in the dining room part as not always able to hear people talk. Would recommend to others and come back

Booked at short notice for meal with a neighbouring couple. Warm evening and we had a pleasant garden table near the stream. Enjoyed a straightforward , good value menu beginning with a ( shared ) platter starter followed by excellent portions of pub-grub style meals .
Pleasant service, good wine , good value and we walked home quite happy... We will be back.

The pie was so small, only 3 pieces of chicken in it ? This was a surprise as I have had a pie here before and it was nearly twice the size and packed with filling ? Disappointing

This is a great 'local' pub. Good atmosphere, great food (but no frills) and fantastic service. We both had a home cooked pizza, very tasty.
There was a skittles match taking place when we dined which made the atmosphere even better. Unpretentious! Just as I like it.

Nice food and friendly bar staff . Shame more people didn't show up to watch the band - it wasn't advertised on the website or even in the pub, just on a board outside.

We were looking to try somewhere new and decided on the duke of Cumberland. We were not disappointed. We felt very well looked after on Friday evening. The food was absolutely delicious. Squid, croquette and spicy bean burgers. Very reasonable cost too. If your looking for a family friendly pub where children and dogs are welcome and great food and service, then this is for you.
Lovely atmosphere and a nice garden to have a drink in after our meal. We would recommend and will be returning. Thank you

We loved The Duke of Cumberland! It's cosy and welcoming, decor is tasteful and attention has been paid to detail. Service was very polite and prompt, everyone was friendly and helpful. We had pizza, we ordered the quattro stagioni and the red pepper and goats cheese with caramelized onion. They were tasty and absolutely huge. Desserts were quite varied and we had a chocolate cheese cake and some ice cream. Our meal - including drinks (a pint of cider and a glass of Argentinian Shiraz) sparkling water and espressos - was £46. We're definitely going back!

We had completed a 10k run in the very cold surrounds of Longleat House. It was a good race and we were happy with what we'd done. We were VERY hungry though and the pub was easy to find, thank goodness - albeit along some very unused lanes. It was warm and welcoming and we were served quickly and with a friendly team helping out. The food was plentiful and tasty and we'd definitely go back. We even had dessert which was not usual for all of us. It was just what we needed.

Booked a table here for New Years Eve, based on reviews read in internet. Staff and barman very helpful and friendly, food was diabolical, up until now I have only complained once in my life about a meal, on this occasion twice, the first meal and the alternative meal which was to compensate for the first. Never the less I insisted on paying the full bill, I am not a cheapskate.
The waitress, so friendly and apologetic refused the £10 tip, but I did say the bad quality of the food should have no bearing on her manner and quality of service.
