A delightful family reunion over a leisurely Saturday lunch, in a beautiful country setting, with personal attention from mine host, well kept beer and scrumptious food, well prepared and tastefully presented. What more can one say? Just superb. Thank you.

Lovely fresh food, friendly service, good beer and decent prices. Nice beer garden too! Cosy feel and more than just a pub. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.

This was our first visit to the Iron Duke, and we wanted somewhere different for a special leisurely Saturday lunch after a country walk. We were delighted. The food was all top quality, nothing artificial or mass-produced. I had a smoked haddock risotto and my...More

Went for lunch with wife and friends after a visit to Stratfield Saye House (very interesting). Food was good but I had a fish pie at £16 and it only came with a salad garnish. At that price fresh vegetables should have been included.
