REVIEWS OF The Duke's Head
Chris G (8 December 2009)
14 of us had lunch today at The Dukes Head at Crawley and it was superb. The staff particularly Sam was friendly, efficient and attentive. We had a mixture of starters, first course desserts, drinks and coffees and everything was spot on. Several of my party had never been to the Dukes before; but all said they would dine there again.
I love food (4 June 2009)
I visited The Duke's Head today for lunch and found it to be very good - great service and very good food - more of a restaurant than a pub. Strange location on a major roundabout but that gives it good access. All in all, very good. I had the scallops followed by the orange tilapia and washed it down with a very morish Baileys and tiramisu iced coffee dessert. The chef's specials were very appealing and the full menu looked good too. Well done to the people who run it as all was top notch, I will be back!
