    Traditional pub food, e.g. homemade Steak and Ale, Cheese & Onion pie. Not an extensive menu, but the food we had couldn't be faulted. Very sizeable portions, tasty and hot. A traditional pub that serves traditional real ales.

    We will definitely be going back. Recommended. "

    After fancying a pub lunch but somewhere we hadn't been before my partner and I found The Duke William through Tastecard and decided to try it. The man allowed us to book a table as we were on our way dismissing the two hour advance booking gap you are supposed to give. Upon arrival the table was ready and waiting for us and we were immediately given a high chair for our tot without asking which was a nice touch. The food was delicious and the service was fab. We were both glad we had tried the nice pub off the beaten track (literally!) and we will be sure to visit again. "

    " A cosy little pub perhaps in need of some modernisation. When I phoned to book I was told that I had to give 3 hours notice when using the taste card and I did mention that wasn't on the booking details.
    So we went out later than intended but as it happens there was a quiz night so we got involved with that.(didn't win though).
    When we got there no one else was eating so I was somewhat surprised for the 3 hour notice.
    There was only 1 girl who was doing everything but she was very pleasant indeed and just got on with it.
    The service was very good and myself and daughter both enjoyed our meals but my wife ordered fish which was dry and over cooked We did mention this to the girl who served us and although my wife didn't want another meal they did knock the cost of the fish off the bill.
    I would certainly go there again but my wife was put off by the fish so she probably wouldn't although we may return next month and join in the quiz again. "

    Couldn't fault the service , was really good , very polite and friendly staff. Just a shame I cant say the same about the food, the sunday lunch was awful , veg was cold and the roast potatoes very dry, the boiled potato had a very strange taste to them .. The starter was too strong in garlic , I left most of the starter and the main course , I am not a fussy eater but it was as though they left the worst of the food to the taster paying customers .

    I feel that when they saw how much food was left on our plates they should have questioned us was there a problem , clearly there was.

    This was out first visit to Duke William , we will not return and would not recommend. "

    We love it here! We've no problems using our card. My partner had the Black Pudding and I always have the Pate, which were both lovely! I usually have Roast Beef which is delicious! What's so great about here is everything is NOT bulk produced! It's all freshly cooked to order! My partner has the Burger! He says they're the best onion rings he's ever tasted! The pub itself is an historical inn, very cosy with a log fire and a wonderful 'sun trap' for sitting out in the front! This is our fave place to eat, even without the Tastecard we'd still go! If you're looking for a fantastic experience, hot food and pleasant all round here's your place. "

The food was fantastic all homemade and we had a lovely evening .Could not fault anything, and will be returning again soon .Thanks to everyone. "

    The Duke is an old coaching inn with lots of character.My wife and I booked a table last Thursday and when we arrived we were promptly served with drinks and sat in front of the log fire whilst we chose our meals. The food is freshly cooked and for my starter I had Bury black pudding topped with cheese and for my main I had one of the best steak and ale pies I have ever tasted. The service was prompt and friendly. I was happy with the prices but with the tastecard we only paid 50% - what a bargain!I can fully recommend a visit to the Duke. "

    Went today with my family. Had lovely meal starting with mushrooms in garlic sauce on crusty type of bread. Had this a few times was fantastic as always.

Lovely food lovely service will be back again. Many thanks "

    Brilliant value for money we are definitely going to visit the Duke William again for sure. "

    " Have to say that the food was great. This is not a fine dining restaurant, but our food was up there with it.

    Traditional pub food, e.g. homemade Steak and Ale, Cheese & Onion pie. Not an extensive menu, but the food we had couldn't be faulted. Very sizeable portions, tasty and hot. A traditional pub that serves traditional real ales.

    We will definitely be going back. Recommended. "

    After fancying a pub lunch but somewhere we hadn't been before my partner and I found The Duke William through Tastecard and decided to try it. The man allowed us to book a table as we were on our way dismissing the two hour advance booking gap you are supposed to give. Upon arrival the table was ready and waiting for us and we were immediately given a high chair for our tot without asking which was a nice touch. The food was delicious and the service was fab. We were both glad we had tried the nice pub off the beaten track (literally!) and we will be sure to visit again. "

    We went on a Wednesday night . On walking in I was a bit dubious as to why I could not get a table the Saturday before because it was pretty empty . Anyway 4 of us decided to stop and give it a go and I am glad we did. The food was superb the 10 Oz steak was cooked to perfection and the chips were the best I have had . The wine and beer was great too . They even had a quiz night so we decided to stop and we all had a great laugh and a great night definitely will be back. "

    " A cosy little pub perhaps in need of some modernisation. When I phoned to book I was told that I had to give 3 hours notice when using the taste card and I did mention that wasn't on the booking details.
    So we went out later than intended but as it happens there was a quiz night so we got involved with that.(didn't win though).
    When we got there no one else was eating so I was somewhat surprised for the 3 hour notice.
    There was only 1 girl who was doing everything but she was very pleasant indeed and just got on with it.
    The service was very good and myself and daughter both enjoyed our meals but my wife ordered fish which was dry and over cooked We did mention this to the girl who served us and although my wife didn't want another meal they did knock the cost of the fish off the bill.
    I would certainly go there again but my wife was put off by the fish so she probably wouldn't although we may return next month and join in the quiz again. "

    Couldn't fault the service , was really good , very polite and friendly staff. Just a shame I cant say the same about the food, the sunday lunch was awful , veg was cold and the roast potatoes very dry, the boiled potato had a very strange taste to them .. The starter was too strong in garlic , I left most of the starter and the main course , I am not a fussy eater but it was as though they left the worst of the food to the taster paying customers .

    I feel that when they saw how much food was left on our plates they should have questioned us was there a problem , clearly there was.

    This was out first visit to Duke William , we will not return and would not recommend. "

    We love it here! We've no problems using our card. My partner had the Black Pudding and I always have the Pate, which were both lovely! I usually have Roast Beef which is delicious! What's so great about here is everything is NOT bulk produced! It's all freshly cooked to order! My partner has the Burger! He says they're the best onion rings he's ever tasted! The pub itself is an historical inn, very cosy with a log fire and a wonderful 'sun trap' for sitting out in the front! This is our fave place to eat, even without the Tastecard we'd still go! If you're looking for a fantastic experience, hot food and pleasant all round here's your place. "

    " It was my partners 45th birthday, found this pub on tastecard site .Thought we would give it a try as the food was homemade .On phoning them up I spoke to a lovely lady called Gill whom I asked if she could decorate the table for us, she told me she would go to the shop and buy the things herself which she did, what lovely service. The food was fantastic all homemade and we had a lovely evening .Could not fault anything, and will be returning again soon .Thanks to everyone. "

A good glass of Merlot wine, coffee to finish. Would definitely recommend and go again. Thank you. "

    The Duke is an old coaching inn with lots of character.My wife and I booked a table last Thursday and when we arrived we were promptly served with drinks and sat in front of the log fire whilst we chose our meals. The food is freshly cooked and for my starter I had Bury black pudding topped with cheese and for my main I had one of the best steak and ale pies I have ever tasted. The service was prompt and friendly. I was happy with the prices but with the tastecard we only paid 50% - what a bargain!I can fully recommend a visit to the Duke. "

    Visited on Saturday. Very friendly staff/management.

    First impressions is that it's a bit of an old mans pub but its very clean and family orientated.

    I had steak - it was huge and not the same as pub 2-4-1's. My daughter had a hot sandwich. "
