Excellent food a proper pub

Not your average pub food but something much better fresh ingredients and a proper Chef all served in a traditional pub, it doesn't get much better

On the 19th December 15, my wife and I together with two friends went here to listen and sing along with Kingsbury Episcopi Band as they played Christmas Carols and songs. We also had a meal. The service was excellent even though the place was very full. The meals were well prepared, well presented and very good to eat. Good... More

Turned up on a Thursday night and it was 'Steak Night', 2 10oz Rumps for £22.50. Steaks were perfectly cooked, with trimmings (mushrooms, tomato and onion rings) and a small bucket of chips. Meal was truly excellent. Pub is down a country lane but don't let that put you off. It has a friendly 'local' atmosphere. I have 2 adverse... More

Myself and 4 other adults plus 4 young children visited the Duke of York, Shepton Beauchamp for their carvery lunch. Haley was doing the honours with serving the meats and sorting out the meals etc. Haley was very understanding with regard to the young children and helped out enormously so that they ate well. The rest of us had as... More

There is a separate TA site for this pub for its accommodation, so i have posted on that in the hotels section. The pub itself had several real ales on tap and having tried several, I can report that they were all good and someone certainly knows how to keep a decent pint. Wifi in the room and pub was...

This is probably 4th time we have stayed at the Duke of York and it's still one of the best places we have stayed in, the rooms are superb as is the food and beer. A very friendly pub and we look forward to staying there again.

If you're after a wonderful tasty steak for great value this is the place to be. All the trimmings as it should be, home made chips as a bonus!

This is my favourite place to go for a carvery, always plenty of choice and accommodating for the children who have smaller portions compared to my hubby who has loads! Atmosphere great, friendly staff and locals welcoming. Also eaten during the week and highly recommend the pies! Will definitely be returning soon.

Having been unable to book a table elsewhere we booked here, having read the reviews on Trip Advisor. We arrived for an 18:45 table (the time they start food on a Saturday evening), and we were shown to a table in the rear 'restaurant' area. Sadly the atmosphere back there didn't do the place justice. The Duke of York has... More
