What our customers say
Thank you so so much for all your help planning our wedding and for being an absolute star on the day setting up for us. Everything was so easy and fun! Ida you were an absolute pleasure to deal with and all the staff were amazing on the night of our wedding as well. Everyone commented on how amazing the food was and that their drinks were topped up all night! The venue of The Duke....well what can I say, it's just magical, it's such a gorgeous place and we loved it so much!! The rooms as well were lovely and all the little touches the staff added to our room were wonderful!! The new deck up on the second story is so dreamy for beautiful wedding photos. I could go on and on but in a nut-shell we wouldn't change a single thing, we loved our wedding so much and The Duke made it so special for us, it's simply The Best!!! Katie and Stefan
