The food was absolutely delicious, only the service was poor. We had a waiter who was charming but new, and he tried really hard to please, but was let down by management. I can't fault the quality of the food, but they need to focus on the staff. visited The Duke's Head Putney on 07 Dec 2016

We had to settle for our 4th choice of starter and then our 2nd choice of main course-a bit disappointing. The Waitress asked us at 10 minute intervals, "Are you all right Ladies?" We both felt we are in a canteen. Definitely not nearly as good as we expected. 2.5 out of 5. visited The Duke's Head Putney on 06 Dec 2016

I booked the Wolsey room for a large family dinner and I have to say, it was perfect. I sent food orders a week before and gave a time for everything to be served. Everything went so well, the food was on time and everyone said how great the food and service was. We also had a bar to ourselves so no need to queue and we really were being waited on hand and foot. A great day so thanks to the Dukes Head for everything visited The Duke's Head Putney on 04 Dec 2016

I am visiting a friend and she booked us into this Thanksgiving dinner. Before she booked, however, she inquired about whether or not there would be a vegetarian option available. She was assured via email that there would be and so we booked in. It was clear at the meal that no such accommodations had been planned. My main course was steamed cabbage in gravy - there were no proteins in the dish. The food overall was quite good and I am confident that had the cook staff planned ahead there would have been a delicious vegetarian option. But ultimately what was provided was subpar. Please don't agree to providing vegetarian options if that's not in your catering plan - I was quite frustrated with my meal and that dampened the whole experience. visited The Duke's Head Putney on 24 Nov 2016

14 of us walking the Thames Path pitched up for lunch on a gloriously sunny day. A very nice table had been laid for us by the window so we could look out on the river. Service was friendly and competent. Drinks came quickly, food a little slow but we had posed quite a problem with our order. Not cheap, but good value for such a great location, lovely atmosphere and good service. visited The Duke's Head Putney on 11 Nov 2016

Restaurant is always good as well as level of service. Unfortunately, on Monday eve because of missing options from the menu - myself and guest chose the partridge as main course. It was terrible - chewy and unappetizing. Ruined a good evening! visited The Duke's Head Putney on 07 Nov 2016

Food was a long time coming. For a pub restaurant you would expect to be out within 1 hr of giving the order for 2 courses.The Ossa Bucca was not good. There was a considerable amount of skin & fat and very little meat visited The Duke's Head Putney on 04 Nov 2016

Well...i love this pub but after making a booking nearly a month in advance, i was called 10 mins before our table booking and told the kitchen wasn't functioning due to a ventilation issue. When we walked in, and saw there was a wedding taking place, that seemed to be a bit of a poor, very last minute excuse. We were then given a reccomendation of another pub nearby, which we went to and my wife got sick from a burger there. Thanks guy. visited The Duke's Head Putney on 22 Oct 2016

Food was ok. However, I was only informed that the Pork had sold out after I had already selected a wine to go with it. Also, the triple cooked chips were not even once cooked and were still raw inside - I sent them back to only be told that they had no more. Also, my girlfriend's potatoes were not roasted and were merely boiled and then put in the oven for a little bit. All in all - not very impressed. visited The Duke's Head Putney on 30 Oct 2016

We hired the Wolsley room for a birthday party and everything was first class: the booking process was easy, friendly and courteous; the room was beautifully prepared and provided the right ambience for a memorable evening; the food was amazing and well presented. We just had a fantastic time and would strongly recommend this as a top venue. Thanks visited The Duke's Head Putney on 22 Oct 2016

Really poor experience. Booked a table for 8 people for my birthday. Had to wait 45 minutes for starters to come and 1 hour for mains to arrive. They forgot to tell us they had ran out of chips so served roast potatoes with battered fish, roast potatoes with sirloin steak and forgot to put any of the advertised sauces with the starter platters. The pepper sauce with the steak was missing the pepper. The staff were busy eating desserts behind the counter whilst we waited 40 mins for plates to be cleared after finishing. We really wanted desserts and coffee but couldn't bring ourselves to wait for longer. Has been a great place to go for food previously but has gone downhill horrendously. After all that an apology would have been great but they just waved off the issues as if they were normal putneyguy visited The Duke's Head Putney on 15 Aug 2016

Senior staff were rude. Asked for a window seat and told none were available even though when we left ALL remained empty. Waste of good location. Poor management. Average food.

Great service, food and view. Always felt looked after and happy that our needs were met. The waiters were friendly and approachable. Vibe was pleasant and bustly. Good presentation and quality hard to beat. Maybe only negative is that fish and chips could have been more nutritious ie more vegetables than mushy peas

A perfect example of a very bad service and staff. We ordered drinks, we asked for 5 pints of Stout and we were looking for recommendation, the waiter came back with 5 pints of light fizzy summer Ale, once we explained this was not what we asked for, he insisted that was an ale and we should , it took us 5 minutes of debates with the waiter to agree swapping at least 2 pints we ordered. in addition to other food, we also ordered 3 portions of fish and chips, the fish was good, however, the triple cooked chips where totally uncooked and inedible. Once the food was delivered to the table, nobody bothered to ask how the food was ok, therefore, once the waiter came to collect the plates, I told him that we could not eat the chips as they were not cooked. The answer from the waiter was:‘ I can see if I can get you a pint of beer for free’, since the dinner was finished I explained him, I wasn’t going to drink any more beer. No compensation offered, after ruining 3 people’s meal and no apologies provided either! During dessert, It was getting cold in the room, I asked to 2 different waitresses if it was ok for me to close the 3 windows in the rooms, the said yes no problem please go ahead! Really?!? Do you prefer let your customers leave their table while having dinner instead of close it yourself? I asked the name of the manager to a waitress, after bringing some excuses that they didn’t have a card to write the details on, I managed to get a name (not contact details just a name...) and I was recommended to look on the website for contacts! Thanks! Visiting the Duke’s Head was certainly an experience to remember, but one that I hope to repeat and would not wish upon anyone else. Decent food ruined by very bad and service

I had my 30th Birthday dinner and party in their 'Wolsey' function room. The lady I dealt with for all arrangements (Sofia) was great and really helpful when I had lots of questions - it was hassle and stress free. The venue was perfect for what I wanted and the food was delicious, even for a function of 30+ people. The staff on the night were initially a little slow on the uptake and we had to help get champagne glasses out etc but once things got started everyone was really helpful and friendly. The room was beautiful and perfect for a dinner party and evening drinks. alexs visited The Duke's Head Putney on 21 May 2016

Went for Sunday lunch. Nice pub with a great dinning area. Food was very good but service was shocking. Shown to the table and then 20 mins later I got up and went to the bar to get my own drinks. It didn't get any better. Plenty of staff but all looked very miserable and disinterested. Shocking attitude. Hope the management sees this review.
