The staff at the Dukes Head could not have been more helpful. From my initial inquiry through to the night itself they were attentive, helpful and very organised. I would recommend them to anyone looking to celebrate a special occasion. Thank you for making my 30th a great night! visited The Duke's Head Putney on 08 Apr 2017

Nice location. We ordered our food and it was a full hour before it arrived, which is unacceptable by anyone's standards. They were not particularly busy either. Food was good but not great. visited The Duke's Head Putney on 15 Apr 2017

We booked a table at Duke's Head, Putney, but when we arrived were ignored by multiple staff for around 10 minutes. Despite asking to be seated three times, they continued to ignore us so we were forced to leave. Really disappointing. Will not be returning. visited The Duke's Head Putney on 12 Apr 2017

We hire out the Rowing club every year for our pub quiz! it is such a gorgeous venue and the staff put up with us making each other into aliens , super hero's , photo booths , holla hooping and much more and they let us do it all. Sofia is also super helpful with providing us with all we need and forever has a smile on her face! honestly the venue is great but the staff are what make it! Thank you for being soooo epic - it is the ultimate event hire space. Thank youuuu visited The Duke's Head Putney on 12 Apr 2017

The two young men serving were great! They couldn't do enough for us- thank you. The main of, Sausage & Mash was quite salty and swimming in a puddle of watery gravy which made the whole dish soggy- there was not an onion in sight regarding an "onion gravy". However, the salmon nicoise was enjoyed. The pudding of cherry almond cheese cake was disappointing and couldn't be eaten -thank you for not charging us. A glass with too little "cheese" and three quarters filled with dry crushed biscuit wasn't pleasant to eat.. Why mess with a cheese cake- a slice with the right amount of topping to base would have been so much better. Not a great evening of food sadly. But lovely views and service. visited The Duke's Head Putney on 31 Mar 2017

Sadly we had a bad experience. We waited for 50 minutes before we got our food. We all had fish and chips. Both the fish and the chips were very greasy. We were given a bottle of wine and told the desserts were on the house but were charged for them. We are local and are quite regular. This was a first. visited The Duke's Head Putney on 01 Apr 2017

I have come to this pub for lunch a few times and I always thought the food was very good. However, yesterday I was disappointed with the food (so were most of the people at the table). I had the chicken pie and it was extremely creamy (heavy) with no flavour and only very few pieces of chicken. Unfortunately my experience this time was not very good. Atmosphere and staff are always nice! visited The Duke's Head Putney on 19 Mar 2017

Staff were friendly, the room was great and generally we all had a good time. My only criticism was that some canapés were very disappointing, £2 for a mini sausage with some ketchup was really not ok, but then the beef and fish and chips looked like proper canapés and were great.. The online email confirmations of what we'd booked was really useful too. Thanks for a great event! visited The Duke's Head Putney on 11 Mar 2017

The service is very slow. I've been to this pub twice in 3 weeks and couldn't believe how slow the service was each time. Service at the bar took ages as well as the arrival of our food. We ordered a bar snack to eat while we were waiting (I expected the wait to be long again) and this was given to us at the same time as our mains when I specifically asked for it beforehand. This is why we returned it. The pub is great but the service really lets it down. visited The Duke's Head Putney on 16 Mar 2017

Lovely dining room overlooking the Thames. Helpful but not obtrusive service. Good standard of food although it is largely classic pub fare - very good fish batter and excellent chips, cleverly presented chicken Caesar salad, nice mushy peas and not overly pricy. visited The Duke's Head Putney on 14 Mar 2017

We were told 3 of the mains were off the menu - there were only 6 choices available, only to them be insulted by the waitress for asking to speak to the manager. We won't be back whilst she is still there. visited The Duke's Head Putney on 04 Mar 2017

I ran a charity pub quiz in the Wolsey Room last night - staff were extremely helpful, the room was well set up, the bar was manned all evening just for us, and best of all, they didn't charge anything or expect a minimum spend as it was for charity.

The Sunday roast was good but a little overpriced for the amount of food. Would have expected it to be c£14, rather than c£17. If I'd got 3 slices of beef then I would have been happier. The lady serving on the bar had no idea what a white wine spritzer was! She was looking for it in the fridge. She had to ask a colleague and then tried to serve it in a champagne glass so had to talk her through. We ordered the same 2 drinks 3 times and every time the price was different..?! Generally a lovely pub with good food. Just would have expected a bit more given the prices. visited The Duke's Head Putney on 12 Feb 2017

We hired the Wolsey Room for a private party. The pre-event planning was simple and the event itself seamless. The staff serving us were really courteous and completely on the ball and the kitchen turned out 26 different delicious dinners simultaneously. The room itself has a lovely atmosphere and feels both special and relaxed. We couldn't fault it.. visited The Duke's Head Putney on 07 Jan 2017

Dining at The Duke's Head was a huge surprise. This is not pub food. This serious, amazing food that one would expect to find at twice the price in a great restaurant. The chef is working genuine wonders in the kitchen and the front of house team are just exceptionally nice and attentive. Brilliant place. visited The Duke's Head Putney on 07 Jan 2017

Hadn't been for about 30 years and was pleased to see that everything is exactly as it was back then, including the furniture and decor. Beautiful room. One hour after we ordered our food it arrived. It was delicious. Had to rush to eat it though, which made the experience mildly tense. The waiting staff were harassed and friendly. The clear impression given was that the kitchen was surprised by the arrival of so many customers and the management had failed to consider how many serving staff a busy dining room requires. visited The Duke's Head Putney on 02 Jan 2017

Seemed like the team gave our table away to a different group (as I gave my name and the lady said the party had already arrived and were at the table, which they weren't). Apart from this, very nice afternoon and staff very friendly. Good food, love the fires and full of locals. Great great spot! visited The Duke's Head Putney on 28 Dec 2016
