Good food but a little expensive.

We really liked our meals here but felt it was a little expensive for what it was. The drinks were nice and I was able to have the bloody mary that I wanted. Nice enough but not sure if it is somewhere we will be returning to with all the other wonderful options in Surbiton.

Went to the Duke for a late lunch and we were not disappointed!! Lovely cosy atmosphere and décor. Wendy greeted us warmly and exuded joie-de-vivre and witty wonderfulness whilst we were ordering our food and drink - which was spot on by the way! There was so much choice, and I was so hungry, settled for the prime steak burger... More

After the reopening of the Duke of York I posted a negative review mentioning that its only worth visiting for its fish and chips.

Duke of York was great, we were with friends to watch some rugby World Cup games. It was a great venue and great options for food. However, that Mac and Cheese was so amazing...I would love the recipe! If we ever come to visit again, I'm sure we will pop in.

It's always a shame when a place goes downhill. This is one of our local pubs and we used to be regular visitors, however recent experiences have not been good. They refurbished the pub earlier this year but you wouldn't know it, it doesn't look any different. The menu has changed and the lovely burgers have disappeared, the remaining menu... More

Hello Firstly sorry that we haven't impressed you. We took the business back from our tenant back in February and closed for a couple of week to replace the kitchen. We just simply would not have opened the pub with it being that way and deemed the works as a high priority to ensure that food is cooked and prepared... More

The menu isn't too bad (who doesn't love pulled pork?) but it's a lot for a pub meal. And the first time we went there was some confusion over the 2 for 1 offer. The person that served us said no but the guy beside her serving another couple said yes. We had to insist on getting 2 for 1... More

We popped in for an unplanned lunch time visit today and had a choice of burgers, and a sharing seafood platter. The food was nicely presented, fresh and tasty, but overpriced for what it actually was and the portion sizes. The saving grace was the bubbly, helpful waitress who went out of her way to look after us throughout. Superb... More
