This used to be a nice local pub for me , now , it has been taken over , staff have changed, beer has changed , prices are up and cleanliness is non exsistant . The staff have not had any people skills taught and are useless. The cheapest beer in 90% of pubs is the most expensive in there...

Down in Brighton visiting family for Christmas from North Yorkshire. Popped in here Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Thanks guys for the free first round of drinks on the 25th.

The iron Duke exceeded my expectations by 100! The staff were outstanding, the location was perfect and the rooms were amazing for getting ready and sleeping in. We booked for a 2 night stay and ended up staying an extra night. So much value for money. The bar down stairs was the highlight of the stay most definitely. Highly recommend...

A little on the basic side - the staff were lovely but it's clear that the rooms side of the business is ancillary to the pub downstairs. If you want a basic room near the front this is fine - but the carpets are threadbare, the room's doorhandle was missing, and the shared shower room / toilet was what you...

After a six hour journey and a 30 min look around for a parking space we entered the Iron Duke. At first sight it is a little old fashioned pub in need of some TLC. We waited for the bar maid to finish serving and she led us to the back area. She proceeded to small talk and was friendly...

Great staff, great facilities, nice location, the food was good and the bar man was really helpful with local knowledge. I also really enjoyed the piano player they had in, in the evening. Nice to see the manageress and her partner being the life and soul of the bar.
