Spent bonfire night at The Duke William & thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The pub is beautifully charming & has a real country pub feel. Bustling with locals & has a real good vibe. The rooms were a good size, with a great bed& shower. Very impressed with the rooms, think they have five in total. We stayed at the front...

Reliably good food, and generous portions. Well cooked meat, just as one ordered; not dry and tasteless. Friendly, homely atmosphere and so relaxed and relaxing. Nice garden and views. Highly recommended.

A visit with family resulted in one of the best pub lunches on a cold autumn day. Well worth the journey. The food and service were excellent. Thank you. My one no-no, was dogs being allowed around tables where people were eating.

The Duke William is a lovely old pub in a beautiful little village, with a great view across fields to the rear. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room ("Stein" - they're all named after celeb chefs!) was nicely decorated and furnished, with French doors out onto a small roof patio area with tables and chairs. The bed...

Found by chance, this is one of those that ticks all the boxes. We booked a Sunday over night stay. On arrival we were greeted with cheery smile and felt immediately welcome. Our room (stein) had a small terrace and it was great to sit in the sun over looking open countryside. It was simply furnished but just right the...

My first visit to the revamped Duke, which was pretty good when I used to live in the village some years ago. The bar and dinning room are cosy and traditional yet somehow have a contemporary feel, most welcoming as you walk in, especially with the cracking open fire. The wine list was inviting and the menu too, our waitress...

We took advantage of the Lazy Sunday package offered by the hotel. The pub itself is charming, lovely decor which felt so welcoming. The Sunday roast was absolutely lovely. Our room (Stein) was so pretty with a small decking area overlooking the fields. Everything in the room was perfect, lots of funny and interesting books for grown ups, a powerful...
