Simon Goodman – Head chef/Owner

I try to use as much of the abundant produce available from the local area – cooking with meat from nearby organic farms, fresh fish from the south coast, as well as the pub’s own vegetable patch. The emphasis here at The Duke is on simple & delicious dishes. With 20 years’ experience as a head chef, and winner of the Pub Chef of the Year competition, I am convinced that this is the sort of food & atmosphere that will continue to pull people into our precious local pubs.
