The food was wonderful, couldn’t have been better. It all looked and tasted amazing; the bread was absolutely delicious. There were so many different nationalities at the wedding, all of whom were really impressed with the timings, the appearance and of course the taste. There were so many lovely comments – Well Done all at Dukes.

Thank you so much, we had a lovely day and the food was wonderful.
Love it when our guests make the most of our hut, even in a storm! A delicious seafood platter from @thedukesseafood was delivered to the beach hut door this morning, inc Lobster, fresh Oysters (complete with a chucking knife) and Crab!
MFOB - Private Event @ Dukes
A great day out on the water (and back ashore) yesterday for the Duke’s Trophy... And a massive thank you to @thedukesseafood for providing us with some delicious food when we got back ashore!

It really was amazing - fabulous food (adored the breads) which, being a lover of seafood, was just the best. The service was spot-on. You should be proud of yourselves (says me, a guest from the Cotswolds but a huge lover of Mersea Island)
