Seafront Patio, Dog Friendly, Live Music
Ask any Sidmouth local where to eat and we guarantee they’ll point you in the direction of Dukes. This thoroughly modern seaside inn is a true Sidmouth mainstay, just 30 steps from the beach and slap bang in the centre of the esplanade. It serves some of the best beer battered fish & chips around, along with an impressive range of drinks and cocktails. Dukes’ all-day dining has something for everyone, with plenty of pub classics, fresh seafood, local meats, and plant-based options on the menu. So, order one of their popular crab sarnies and head for the outside patio area. It’s the perfect spot to breathe in the sea air and enjoy lunch with friends. If an evening reservation is on the cards, then there's 14 comfy bedrooms upstairs, so you can make the most of their cocktail list.
Maverick Tip: If you’ve got a sweet tooth you need to try Dukes speciality hot chocolate. It’s an impressive mug of cocoa with a tower of whipped cream, mini marshmallows, and a chocolate flake for good measure.
