What our customers say

The Duke is an exceptional place to have a wedding. From the moment we arrived in town The Dukes staff knew who we were days ahead and made us and our families and friends feel extra special. On the day, bad weather meant a change of plans with the Duke now suddenly also hosting the ceremony on their front deck. This was all taken in its stride and went without a hiccup. The food is second to none, the staff are seriously exceptional, providing a service none of our guests had ever experienced. For one week the Duke became our second home. Special thanks to Ida, Ellie, Sam and Col. Thanks again and we will see you all soon! Hayley and Michael, Nov 1, 2018
