A traditional Bar/Restaurant with rooms, many with a sea view. However, the rooms are not large and the toilet/shower room can best be described as compact! The staff are exceptional. All were affable and helpful. They enhanced our stay. Helen is outstanding, she is a credit to the business. We stayed for one night, Valentines, so we dined from the...

Dukes is right on the front at Sidmouth, with exterior and interior seating, as well as rooms. The staff are all bright, cheerful and know their jobs, nothing is too much trouble. The same goes for the kitchen, the food will not disappoint, so pop in and give it a try o look online at their website.

We stayed here on a Thursday night. The room was lovely. Didn't mean to eat supper there but many other places closed for January! How lucky we were. The food and service was excellent. And the breakfast was fabulous, an unexpected gem. Totally changed from a visit 3 years ago. We shall return. Love their interest in seasonality and local...

We go here every couple of weeks for tea and scones and the scones are always beautifully made, supplied with lots of butter :). Staff are always friendly and you get a loyalty card to get stamped every time you go. Lovely outdoor area, great in the summer. Would recommend.
