Once again a really tasty meal in gorgeous settings. The staff area always so lovely and that really make is for me. My friends who had never been to the Duke's before were blown away and couldn't stop looking out of the window at the river! Great evening - again!! visited The Duke's Head Putney on 21 Jun 2017

delicious food, fantastic all round service, great table but but but.. something needs to be done about the lighting and music - the dining area facing the river can have a) more focused intimate lighting or just turn off a few light fixtures.. it was incredibly bright and b) music can surely be a bit more apt for the space. visited The Duke's Head Putney on 16 Jun 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

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.

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.

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

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.

Fantastic night at the dukes head. The rowing club venue is 'the' place to host a party. I recently had my 40th there and everyone LOVED the venue.
