The Duke's grand ballroom with ornate ceilings, low hanging chandeliers and polished wooden floor boards opens up directly onto a sun filled deck over looking the sea. The ballroom is filled with individually upholstered chairs seating up to 150 guests comfortably or 250 for a standing cocktail and canape function. We can also cater for larger groups seating up to 300 guests across the ballroom and restaurant over the quieter winter months of the year.

What our customers say

Thank you so much. The day was so amazing and everything was just perfect. We would not have been able to do any of it without the help of you and all the staff at the duke. Before I started planning I had no idea what I was doing and thank goodness for you because I would have been so lost. We had multiple guests tell us that it is the best wedding they have been to and how much fun they had and how amazing the food was. We will definitely be back for many more anniversaries to come :) With love Hayley & Michael
