Great food and service. Proper food including real bacon for breakfast, not supermarket bacon pumped full of water. Lovely people, nothing too much trouble. Also, good choice of drinks.

We booked a table for the Sunday carvery for my husbands birthday, we have four children and with so many areas to the pub it was easy to relax in one of the rooms and for all of us to enjoy our meal without the worry of disturbing anyone. The meal was superb with a choice of meats (all beautifully... More

Have just spent a very pleasant evening at The Duke of York. Kingsbury Band were playing carols by the fireside whilst we wined and dined. The service was good and the meals very good. We were with friends and the meals came pretty quickly. We had a wonderful evening eating, drinking and singing our way towards Christmas. Service and Food... More

Visited this place while visiting parents who live in the village. Don't be put off by first impressions, the food is excellent. Bar could do with a spruce up but don't detract from the super food. Even do homemade pizzas which kept my teenage twins very happy. We will be back when we visit the parents again. Thank you:)

A 'real' gem of a pub. Well kept cider and ales, honest food, dogs, a complete cross section of customers: everyone from senior business types, the local doctor, village locals to the shepherd and farm workers. Traditional skittle alley, paved terrace and comfortable en-suite accommodation. Well worth a visit.

We stayed 4 nights in the pub rooms out the back. We also had dinner 3 nights in the pub. Paul and Hayley are good hosts and they have a very good Chef, who I spoke to on a couple of nights as he brought meals out. The steaks are excellent as is the fish, portions and quality/freshness were first... More

It's hard to be neutral about a pub which is 20 yards from your front door, but this is a proper pub - excellent Otter Ale, guest beers (currently Potholer) and Thatchers Gold for the cider drinker. A good atmosphere, seems to get livelier in the evening, but pretty quiet and relaxed at lunchtimes and afternoons. Good food and an... More
