Description

Sitting at the start of the Oxford and Cambridge University Boat Race, a grand Victorian grade II listed building with four venues under one roof - this is the best way to describe the Duke's Head on the river bank in Putney...

The Wolsey Room is luxury all of it’s own... This bright 1st floor Victorian private dining room with a wall of windows and a river view is an ideal background for everything from drinks receptions to intimate wedding ceremonies, from business lunches and private dinner parties to classy birthday parties.
 
The Rowing Club is the social hub of Putney situated on our lower ground floor with a riverside terrace. Hosting everything from live music to delicious supplier tastings and comedy nights; there really never is reason not to come here. Delicious home-made street food is served all night alongside our signature cocktails, local craft beers and spirits - eat in, or eat out whilst enjoying a beautiful sunny evening by the river!

The worst fish and chips I have had in a long time . Menu is awful. Friends hated their food too and one was sick during the night. Shame as the decor is nice. Came twice in a week and both time was horrible . Visited The Duke's Head Putney on 2018-02-02

The decor is lovely and it looks beautiful but the menu was very poor on choices . Too much offal , pigs cheek, fagots etc no fish and chips so the only choice on the menu was a burger . Even the pie had kidney's. A lot of young people do not eat this kind of food. We are not at war time and what is the problem of having lovely chicken or a steak on the menu ?

No gluten free beer options and a rude waitress who had a sour look the whole afternoon serving us. Starters were good but the roast itself was average at best and when asked for gluten free I was told they couldn't do a gluten free gravy or yorkshire pudding yet still had to pay full price Visited The Duke's Head Putney on 2018-01-28

the food was really tasty, the staff were so happy kind and attentive, the only thing that let it down was the quality of the pulling crackers was poor but that is minor - we felt welcome and had a lovely Christmas lunch with you . Visited The Duke's Head Putney on 2017-12-25

Sadly not great this year. Been coming on Christmas Eve for last few years and super excited. No one explained the specials. Sadly steaks were really tough. No one asked how our food was. I asked my son to mention that two of us could not eat the steaks. Staff very disinterested generally. Shan’t be back next year. Visited The Duke's Head Putney on 2017-12-24

Reply from The Duke's Head Putney

Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that your experience with us this year was not top-notch! The issue with the quality of the steaks have been raised with our chefs and we are working towards changing the cut on the menu. We have also spoken to the team and will be holding a training session for all the new staff as well as a refreshing session for the all old staff in the beginning of the new year to up our service. We are truly sorry that this happened to you and we hope that you can give us another chance in the future. If you wish to discuss the matter further, please do not hesitate to get in touch: dukesheadputney@youngs.co.uk All the best, DH

It wouldn't have hurt to have lent us a microphone would it? We must have accounted for nearly £3k of takings. Won't recommend it be back Visited The Duke's Head Putney on 2017-12-14

Reply from The Duke's Head Putney

Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear that you won't be returning to the Duke's Head but as we explained last night, unfortunately the microphone was used by another party and as we only have one microphone we were not able to offer you one too. Have a merry Christmas! Warm regards, DH

Organising our work Christmas Party with the Duke's Head was very easy and quick. I thought the Wolsey Room was really great and had been decorated well to create a festive setting for our work Christmas party. Unfortunately we were slightly disappointed with the food. It hadn't been made clear that it would be mini sizes, as when I originally asked I was told 1 platter was sufficient for 2 people. In future I think I'd ask for a different menu to order from. Visited The Duke's Head Putney on 2017-12-07

Reply from The Duke's Head Putney

Than you for your review and your feedback - we are glad to hear that we were able to offer you easy and quick party planning as well as a well decorated room - the Wolsey room indeed is quite beautiful with all the decorations and the river view! However we are sorry to hear that you were disappointed with the amount of the food. It is difficult for us to say exactly how much you will need to preorder for your party as all parties and guests have different requirements but the finger food platters are recommended for 1-2 people depending on how hungry people are. And in a case where food runs out due to high demand we are always happy to provide extra bar food when requested too. Have a wonderful Christmas time and we hope that you will visit us soon again! Warm regards, Sofia

We enjoyed the food but were really disappointed that we did not get a widow table. I specifically asked for one because my friend had never been to The Duke's Head before and I wanted him to enjoy the river view. I had had Christmas lunch with my family at The Duke's Head a couple of years ago and loved it. Visited The Duke's Head Putney on 2017-12-09

Reply from The Duke's Head Putney

Thank you for you review and feedback -we are delighted to hear that you enjoyed the food and had a lovely Christmas lunch with us previously! We do our best always to accommodate all requests from our guests but unfortunately we can not guarantee a window table as all our diners are just as eager as another to get a table by the window and we can only fit so many. We are sorry that we were not able to offer you a window table this time - please drop us an email next time when you book with your details and we will do our best to get you a widow seat: dukesheadputney@youngs.co.uk Have a great day!

We were really disappointed on Saturday. We'd booked for an early table then were squeezed in under the Christmas Tree. Asked to move to one of the free tables but were told they were booked - they were still vacant when we left 90 mins later. Two options were already off the menu - steak and venison pie - off the menu by 5.30 pm !!!! Pity anyone eating after 8.00 - there'd be nothing left on the menu at that rate. From what was left we ordered two fish and chips - the chips were chunky and not cooked - hard in the centre. Waitress offered replacements but they were the same. Waitress was nice and doing her best - she gets the one star on the rating. Needless to say we won't be going back. Visited The Duke's Head Putney on 2017-12-09

Reply from The Duke's Head Putney

Thank you for your review and feedback - we are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your early dinner with us! We had a very busy lunch time so it is true that we did run out of the pie momentarily on Saturday while the chefs were baking a new set for the evening and we are sorry that your party was not able to order it. We also do apologise for not letting you know that your table was next to the tree when you booked. Table nine is one of our most requested tables as it is right by the windows and, as you mentioned, next to the Christmas tree so it did not occur to us that this might cause issues. Your comments have been passed on to our team and we will make sure this will not happen again. Moving tables can also be difficult when the restaurant is fully booked like it was this Saturday. Unfortunately the table that was left vacant in the end was indeed booked but the party did not let us know that they could not make it to their reservation after all. Because we know that the traffic is most of the time quite terrible when coming to Putney, we offer all our bookings 30 minutes leniency before we release the table to the public. Please accept our sincerest apologies. We truly hope that you can give us another chance to better ourselves in the future and if there is anything other comments you would like to add, please do not hesitate to get in touch! Have a wonderful festive season! All the best, DH

Over priced food. Had the roast on a Sunday. Looked fantastic but it was all bones and not a lot of flavour Visited The Duke's Head Putney on 2017-11-26

Reply from The Duke's Head Putney

Thank you for your review. We are sad to hear that you found us to be too expensive and appreciate your feedback about the roast. The chicken roast is served as a whole half a chicken and does include bones but we do apologise if your half was lacking meat - please do let us know next time and we will be happy to change your chicken to more meaty one instead. Also, please do let us know is there anything else we can do upon your next visit to make it to be closer to 5 stars rather than 1 star - we are always looking to improve our service and products and your feedback will help us do so!

We have looked for some time to hire a functional room in a pub that will accommodate live band, provide canape and drinks and give us enough privacy to celebrate a birthday. Many pubs around London were happy to provide some of what we looked for but not everything - until we asked Duke's Head and they offered Wolsey room to hire. Everything went very slick - from the first contact via email and their prompt reply, visit to the pub and confirming what we need, until the day when the party happened. It was a great experience and everything went as planned! The food was served, the bar was open and live band played uninterrupted, no complains about the music volume . Lina at the bar did amazing job taking fantastic care of all our guests and we were a party of 40+ people. Thank you Duke's Head for being very professional and accommodating.

Great food, but the dining room at the back of the pub is quite echoey and noisey. More dining hall, than cosy pub atmosphere in this area. Visited The Duke's Head Putney on 2017-10-29

Reply from The Duke's Head Putney

We are glad you enjoyed food - and yes you are right, it is quite echoey in the dining room due to the fact that we are an old Victorian age building with high ceilings - they are beautiful but sometimes not very practical! We hope that you visit us soon again and maybe try our cosy Duke's bar or crafty Rowing club area this time x

Food was good but the service was quite slow. We had to keep asking to be served. Also mentioned that maybe the pub should stop using straws but waiter didn't seem impressed! Visited The Duke's Head Putney on 2017-10-04

Reply from The Duke's Head Putney

Good to hear that you enjoyed the food - our chefs are a brilliant bunch and are always coming up with new delicious dishes - as for the service, we do apologise for the slowness and increase the daily coffee dosage for the front of house to perk them up and make sure this will not happen again! Thank you for mentioning the straws as well - this is a very good point! We are actually not getting rid off the straws as we would still like to offer them to our customers when requested but instead we are changing the current plastic ones to biodegradable in the beginning of the new year. If you want to know more, please do not hesitate to get in touch :)

Great setting and casual pleasant decor. Lovely view of the river. Food generally good though risotto rather stodgy. Staff friendly and helpful. Visited The Duke's Head Putney on 2017-10-04

Reply from The Duke's Head Putney

The river view, the decor and the staff of the pub are definitely features that make our little pub quite special and we are delighted to hear that you enjoyed them too! We do apologise for not communicating better how the risotto would be served - as a part of our winter comfort food dishes, it is served on the heavier side. We will make a note of that! We hope that you have a lovely winter and would be nice if you would visit us soon again :)

Thank you so much to everyone at the Dukes Head for a great day. The weather was dreadful and as we had booked an area leading to a terrace they got in touch in the morning and offered another location inside the pub. The area was well signposted so that everyone could find the new location and the staff couldn't have done more to make our day special. Ten out of ten!!!

A very disappointing visit to a lovely pub in a great setting. Really bad food - sadly - as such a fab location. It was a huge issue it seemed to get some bread to tide us over while we waited for another guest. The roast was seriously bad, the pork was so dry we could barely cut it, the crackling was soft the potatoes tasted old and the Yorkshire pudding was so dry it was like eating an old cracker. Really disappointing as this was a special occasion for my parents who were over from Australia. We will be back for a drink but not for food. Visited The Duke's Head Putney on 2017-08-27

Absolutely awful. I ordered the pork cutlet which turned up in a bowl covered in chopped salad and under cooked potatoes. The pork was dry had no seasoning and the rind was white and rubbery -?should have been brown and crisp. I returned the dish and was offered an alternative. Chose a burger which turned with undercooked white insipid fries. Couldn't eat it. My friends ordered the crab in brioche which had no seasoning. Overall it ruined my birthday and will not be returning again Visited The Duke's Head Putney on 2017-08-21

The prawn and avocado starter was totally under-whelming with a prawn mousse just a smear across the plate and the avocado puree was three minute blobs , Grossly over-hyped on the menu and over-priced. The salad starter contained a minute amount of mozzarella amongst the tomatoes. The chicken liver pate was lovely but breads in short supply. Roasts were fine, but nowhere near warm enough when served at the table. The cheese board on the deserts menu was actually a cracker board with three tiny pieces of cheese as an after thought. The waiting staff just plonked bottles of wine on the table with tops still on and no opportunity to taste, and no thought for a chiller with the white. Frankly our experience with the wine serving would have been better in a supermarket. Overall we loved the place - great atmosphere, but we left feeling a bit ripped off.

Held my 50th birthday party for 90 people at the Rowing Club bar at the Duke's Head Pub last night. The venue and location were fantastic - down by the river, easy transport and parking, cool bar, unusually decorated with nice lighting, outside terrace, their own toilets,a great sound system, room to dance and a late license available. I ordered quite a lot of canapes and a small buffet and although the food was delicious, they just didn't organise enough staff to serve it and it sat, going to waste, on the side,getting cold under the air conditioning, with many of my guests not even knowing it was there! The bar worked out okay but I had organised a glass of proseco for everyone on arrival and again, glasses weren't filled and I can't believe all the bottles were actually used - the few staff there were just didn't have enough time! The bouncer that I was assured would be on the door, didn't materialize for quite a while, so we were left ourselves to fend off the public from coming in to use the bar and toilets. The girl I had arranged everything with wasn't even there and I wasn't introduced to the staff to know the difference between who my team were and who were stray members of the public walking through! I had asked for my birthday cake to be cut up and served but it wasn't really and was put onto paper serviettes rather than plates, which didn't work with a spongy/ creamy cake. The staff that were there worked very hard and were appreciative of my concerns and really tried to help but I wish I hadn't had to say anything, it really put a sad tinge on my memories of the evening. I did have a fabulous night but the lack of staff and communication were definitely a problem. Would I recommend it as a venue - yes, it's a great space but they need to get more staff and communicate better with their clients and I'd order much less food - I think a lot of it ended up in the bin - which was really upsetting!

We had a post wedding reception dinner in the Connaught room for 45 people which Sofia had helped us organise. We were able to choose our menu and pre order so that the food would be ready for our arrival. The setting was relaxed and we had an informal table plan which can't have been easy for the staff but everything was done without a fuss, we ate really well and we were met with smiles all the way through. Thanks to Sofia and the staff. The evening couldn't have gone any better. We were able to wander about freely in the room and by the river and it was a fantastic way to celebrate with our families.

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.

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.

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 2017-03-16

Lovely food and a great setting. Still one of my favourite pubs. Visited The Duke's Head Putney on 2017-02-14

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 2017-02-12

Sunday lunch and the Duke's Head are inseparable. It is always full so you just have to relax and go with the flow. The quality of the food is excellent. Visited The Duke's Head Putney on 2017-02-05

Unfortunately, as so often, The Duke's Head is understaffed. There is nothing wrong with the waiters and waitresses, there is just not enough of them. Visited The Duke's Head Putney on 2017-02-05

Table booked at 1. Food took so long to come out we didn't eat until after 3! Our waiter apologised and gave us a discount on the bill and a free bottle of wine, which was good of him, but the kitchen was obviously in melt down. Visited The Duke's Head Putney on 2017-01-28

Fantastic delicious meal and superb service. There had been a slight mix-up with the pre-order, but the staff dealt with this excellently. Top marks all round and we will try to come here more often! Thank you. Visited The Duke's Head Putney on 2016-12-26

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 2017-01-07

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 2017-01-07

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.

Very friendly service and the food and wine was good, with one exception - please do NOT re-bake baked potatoes, it spoilt 2 or the 3 very good meals. Visited The Duke's Head Putney on 2017-01-02

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 2016-12-28

The service was incredibly slow. Arrived at 12.30! on a Saturday having booked a table for 8. Ordered drinks, starters and mains. Long gaps between each service. Had to ask for the bill and rush off at 14.30 - 2 hours later. Visited The Duke's Head Putney on 2016-12-17

Very unfortunate experience for my husband's after birthday party lunch. Had to wait 50 min for food to arrive. But was disappointed even more when tried it: it was all cold. My husband ended up without lunch and we had to leave to another pub... Visited The Duke's Head Putney on 2016-12-17

Food was absolutely excellent! Very interesting food menu. I loved the Turkey pie. The wine list was a bit lacking and the ambience in the bar area was not so cosy. Next time I will make absolutely sure to book into the restaurant. And maybe drink something different... Visited The Duke's Head Putney on 2016-12-15

You put on an excellent wake for us, providing good wines and imaginative finger food. I can't praise your soft boiled scotch eggs too highly and all at a fair price. Robert R Visited The Duke's Head Putney on 2016-12-12

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 2016-12-07

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 2016-12-06

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 2016-12-04
