What our customers say

We couldn’t have asked for anything more. Our wedding was a perfect day spent with family and friends and we are so glad to have met such wonderful people at The Duke along the way. Ida was a pleasure to deal with. She was so helpful and made the planning so easy. Ellie was a super star. Nothing was too much trouble on the day and her team were nothing short of sensational. Not only have our guests commented on the great food, rooms and location but how helpful every single staff member was. We were blessed with a gorgeous winters day ending in a spectacular sunset. If you want the wedding of your dreams, The Duke is the place. Many thanks Carl and Madalena
