Our Menus

Food imageHere at the Duke we take pride in our food, drink and atmosphere, over the last four years or more we've loved nothing more than seeing our customers new and old enjoying what we have to offer.

As individuals we really enjoy a relaxing atmosphere with great non intrusive service and believe that you will too.

Our chefs freshly cook your dishes to order, and where possible, we use locally sourced ingredients because we know that you'll taste the difference.

We have our infamous Sunday Carvery from 12 noon every Sunday where reservation is essential. You will not be disappointed!
