Could not fault this restaurant! Very close to the beach, on the way into the town, me and my partner popped in with our dog, all the staff were wonderful, so friendly! I had the BBQ pulled chicken burger and my partner had the beef burger, the fries were nice and crispy and the burgers were really lovely! Can highly...

I am disabled with a head-injury, so please forgive my waffling if i do so. i regularly cycle the 4 mile round trip to Sidmouth sea front on my Recumbent Trike with my Black Lab. The food is lovely, fresh & delicious with a very friendly service to match. The kind staff, recognising I am disabled, always carry my drinks...

Upon visiting the lovely town of Sidmouth we chose to have lunch in the Dukes and pretty chuffed we did too. It looked nice from the outside and the inside was a pleasant surprise too. The staff were friendly and attentive. The food was delicious. We throughly enjoyed our lunch here

Only in Sidmouth for two days so only one evening meal here.Always a good menu and the food is excellent. The staff are friendly and efficient and there is always a great atmosphere in the bar areas, the restaurant or conservatory..Undoubtedly the place to eat in Sidmouth, and also to have a coffee outside if the weather allows. Scones are...

My wife and I dined at Dukes on Thursday this week and we just wanted to register what a pleasure it was. The atmosphere was great, the staff friendly and efficient and of course the food excellent. Roll on 2017 when we shall return to SIDMOUTH and very definitely to Dukes.

I stayed for one night on a business trip. My single room had a great sea view, and was very compact, but well equipped - there was even an iron and ironing board but I don't think I'd have had enough space to use it! The single rooms are best suited to smaller people... The restaurant and bar were great...

Sidmouth is full of gentile hotels doing weekly rates so on a Sunday when doing B and B and having eaten Sunday lunch earlier it's quite a challenge to get a simple bowl of soup or sandwich anywhere. Dukes, however, saved the day with a great range of full meals or light snacks including delicious sweet potato and squash soup....

Visited Dukes after finding it on Trivago. Had an appointment in Exeter, and after a busy year want a relaxing break, and visit the Donkey Sanctuary. On arrival parking was a bit awkward, but then the whole of Sidmouth is a bit like that. You can't have extensive parking and a quaint authentic seaside resort. So be prepared to be...

We have visited Sidmouth literally dozens of times and - I don't know why - we have never had lunch at Dukes, until today. It was quite simply SUPERB. From the moment we arrived - a very friendly young chap showed us to a lovely table by the window overlooking Lyme Bay. Our drinks arrived promptly and we were given...
