Restaurant description

A refurbished country-style pub, The Dukes Head serves a menu of modern British and Mediterranean food. Inside, roaring log fires, cowhide rugs and distressed-wood panels on the walls make it a warm, cosy retreat in the small village of Crawley Down.

The modernised décor combines earthy, wooden tones with splashes of teal and orange to create an opulent, yet cosy, feel. Open log fires, plush velvet seating and industrial copper lighting also add a touch of glamour to this otherwise relaxing and inviting space. The bar area is a real focal point for the pub, along with more booth style seating for larger groups and families to be together.

There’s an exciting social dining experience, featuring fresh flavours and ingredients inspired by modern world-food trends. The large range of small plates, designed for sharing, make the perfect start to dinner.

Close to East Grinstead, The Dukes Head in West Sussex is a 10-minute drive from both Gatwick Airport and Three Bridges Rail Station.

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    The 3 of us all enjoyed our meals. The pub looked very Christmasy and the staff were welcoming and friendly. In the past I have requested, and got, a table in a carpeted area. This is important as my 2 guests have trouble hearing when restaurants have hard floors. Your carpeted area is now for private parties only. This is a pity!

    Food was good but service awful. Waiting staff were friendly but completely overwhelmed with pre-Christmas rush. 45 mins after being seated we were still chasing up staff for a drink.

    Comfortable, friendly atmosphere. Belly pork dish to die for!

    We had an overall good experience at The Dukes Head. The new decor is lovely and cosy, makes a more high end environment. The menu is good although we were surprised at the absence of sliced onion with the burger and sweet potato fries. We had to pour the wine ourselves although we were nearly the only people there and there were a lot of staff setting up tables around us. So service could have been better.

    We celebrated a birthday at The Dukes Head. The decor is fabulous, staff really helpful and food superb. Oh, I forgot, the cocktails were great too.

    My friends and I visit The Dukes Head on a regular basis because the food is consistently good, the atmosphere welcoming and staff extremely helpful. On this visit, which was in celebration of a birthday, chef was incredibly helpful in making the experience very special and he and the servers all sang happy birthday to the lady in question at our table. The service is always outstanding.

    The seared salmon was quite small, served on two pieces of undercooked brocoli. The main problem was a puddle of spinach, swimming in oil. We told the waitress but no one from Management came to investigate, or apologis.

    Food & staff were lovely but service was a bit slack! When our main meal was brought out our starters hadn’t been cleared away.

    We really did not enjoy the food. My salmon and vegetables were covered in butter, smothered! My sisters twice baked chips were horrible, tasted like leftover! And the service was not great!
