The place itself was really nicely decorated, however the food was poor and the service wasn't great. The waitress needs to learn some customer service (smiling, asking if the food was enjoyed, wearing her long hair up- very unhygienic!) The sandwiches were both very average with unappetising crunchy bread.

The Duke is a classic, homely and comfortable pub. My family and I had a great meal here (steak burger). What was extra special is that they allow dogs in the old library, so the family dog came along, who also had a great time.

Fine effort at an Xmas dinner. Service was prompt and food was really good for the price. An excellent effort.

My first time here, took 10 minutes for us to be seated, we were told the gentleman was on his way. Drinks arrived quickly. Waited about half an hour to order food. Starters came after 40 minutes and was nice. Main course followed an hour later and was not worth the wait. Turkey wasn't proper turkey, roast potatoes looked like... More

Make no mistake, the Duke is a great pub and welcomes locals and visitors alike. It can be lively, especially on a match day, and when there is live music, but it's big enough to find a space. We've eaten at the Duke a few times and have always enjoyed the good quality, good value traditional dishes on offer. We... More

Both myself and girlfriend had the afternoon off work so decided to do a spot of shopping and maybe grab something to eat whilst in Cowbridge. We chose the Duke as we have been there many times over the last 20 odd years and had a late lunch there. We were not disappointed! I ordered the SA Brains Gold sausages... More
