We had heard that this place was a gastro-pub, so maybe our expectations were too high to start with, or maybe they were just having a bad day (we all have them)..... Having phoned in advance that same morning to book a table, we arrived on time - only to be told there was no booking in our name. We...

We were visiting family in Beare Green, near Dorking, and upon leaving decided to stop somewhere for lunch. Almost straight away, we saw a sign ahead of us, and pulled in. It was the Dukes Head Pub and Grill on the Horsham Road. We pulled into a good-sized car park and went straight in, finding a well laid out bar...

We have just got home from a lovely Sunday roast at The Dukes Head. We were so impressed! The new owners have been running the place for only 4 months and are doing an excellent job! Everything was so delicious and the portions were so generous. Half of my plate was just meat! The atmosphere is lovely and the staff...

Perfect for a lovely traditional Sunday roast. Very friendly staff and good wines. I would definitely recommend this for a family Sunday lunch - much better value than any 'chain' type pub grub! We booked in advance and I would say this is probably to be advised.

I have visited this pub on many occasions and actually have never been disappointed. This week we went with a group from work to trial the new menu. The waitress was very kind and accommodating. Restaurant had a slight move around and I preferred it. We sat on the right at the back by an old bread over which was...

Been wanting to try this place again for a while, unfortunately they are no longer doing the carvery which I am told was really nice. The Starter was good, cheesy garlic bread huuuge portion and very tasty, gooey, garlicy, cheesy yummyness. Opted for a roast as my main dish, when the lady explained that you don't get to choose which...

We had a great meal at the Dukes last evening - it was the first night of their new menu and this proved to be very good! There is still a smattering of burgers and steaks, but with a South African and Portuguese twist, along with "potjie" and other traditional South African dishes. It's fabulous to see our local getting...

This pub has been so inconsistent over the past few years. We were both very excited when we found out it was under new management but sadly we haven't had very good experiences since. We have ordered food a few times and found it very lacking. The ribs in particular on one occasion were so tough I struggled to get...

I stopped by to eat at this establishment and although we found the staff very polite what we ordered in the way of food was not very good. Our dinner was not hot and we asked for something to be done about it which was not taken on board very well. I paid the bill and left.
