Post wedding reception
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. Thanks very much to the Duke's Head for all your care. I would recommend this place to anyone for functions of a similar kind.Sent on 10/08/2017

Huge thank you
Lesley and I would like to say a huge thank you to you and your team for all the hard work you put into making our wedding on Saturday such a great success. The room looked amazing, the food was great and many of the guests made a point of mentioning how friendly and courteous they thought the staff were. Please pass on our thanks to Jake and Harriet.Sent on 10/08/2017
I was very nervous before the event but in all our meetings you reassured me, quietly and calmly,"It will be fine" and you were absolutely right. We are very grateful and we would definitely recommend the Coxswain room to anyone thinking of planning a wedding reception.

Attentive, professional and friendly
We had a lovely 3 course lunch upstairs in the beautiful Woolsey Room at the Dukes Head to celebrate our Wedding. The room was the perfect size for our 30 guests and the food was delicious. Sofia helped us diligently before the event and the bar staff and servers on the day were excellent; attentive, professional and friendly, willing to accommodate all requests.Sent on 10/08/2017
Would recommend a large party here, but equally we will be back for a quiet pint and bite to eat!
