We like the fish and chip nights. Good food value and service. We regularly eat there & enjoy sitting in the conservatory. We will be back. The only ctiticism we have is that we don't rate their coffee. It is always busy so booking is advisable as we were disappointed they were full one time.

I live in Sidmouth, and Dukes is a great place all year round. But on two subsequent visits to eat there, the food has not been good and I had cause to mention it to them. The sauce they served with the Exmouth mussels was just plain bland; no flavour apart from the cream. Worse, we went with friends and...

The inn was very comfortable with some nice added touches, the staff couldn't do enough for us, the food was excellent, and the location was fab. What more could you ask for. We will definitely go back.

Lunch with friends at Dukes. A pleasant dining area with good service from the staff. For our main course three of us had the battered fish ( haddock) and chips with peas. A tasty piece of fish, not swamped with batter, and the chunky chips were oozed just right. The let down was the starter. Two of us had the...

Stayed here one night. Perfect spot and central. Limited free parking but we managed to get a spot. We were in room 14, large room with sea view and sofa, although the sofa had seen better days, the springs had gone. Very clean especially bathroom. Large choice for breakfast which was good. Staff were welcoming and very helpful. Cannot fault...
