About us

We’re proud to offer fine dining in the heart of Plymouth. In our Two AA Rosette-awarded restaurant, you can enjoy classic dishes with an adventurous twist, beautifully presented by our talented chefs. Plus, eating out is always an occasion at the Duke, thanks to the stunning Victorian grandeur of our unique restaurant.

Whether you’re staying at the hotel or visiting just to dine, you’ll find an exceptional selection of food available on our menu. Created by our talented award-winning chefs, these dishes are original, delicious and beautifully presented. And our restaurant is a wonderful setting for fine dining. With its unusual circular form, grand pillars and classic décor, there’s period charm in abundance. The domed ceiling adorned with a dazzling chandelier make for a striking focal point. This combination of great food and beautiful surroundings creates a truly special dining experience we know you’ll love.
