My favourite pub in Surbiton. Awesome food and friendly staff. Steak nights on Thursdays are especially good. The T-bone cut is a winner (always cooked to perfection). Staff are friendly and always happy to help. A great place!!!

Having read reviews on here, we came to check it out for a Sunday roast. And I'm afraid to say the Duke of York was utterly dire. The food arrived virtually cold and had to be sent back. It came back two minutes later having been warmed up in the microwave. The size of portion was very ungenerous too; for... More

I'm lucky enough to live within walking distance of this peaceful pub, with it's friendly staff and incredible food. Steak nights in Thursdays are especially good - excellent cuts of beef, no fat and great taste. Bread pudding with warm vanilla sauce also exquisite. Thoroughly recommend.

We had a nice meal here, and found the pub a very friendly place. It was quite busy so had to wait a while for our food. But it was good when we got it, and to top it off the manager offered us all a dessert free, how kind was that!

Thank you so much for putting such a nice review on TripAdvisor. Our service is normally better but we were a chef short for that shift and I am glad you understood and also enjoyed the dessert. Hope to see you back at the Duke soon. More

A typical British pub in which you can try tasteful meals and drink high quality beer or cider. The place is very nice and the staff is very polite. Recommended!

More of a restaurant than a pub. Foods reasonably priced and above average for pub grub. Burgers are nice and they do a 2 for £16 deal Monday to Wednesday. Also had the wraps which are a cheaper but equally good option. Pub wise it's pretty poor. Not much atmosphere and only a few stools at the bar. Can't knock... More

We went here off the cuff on Tuesday night and had a burger each. My partner had the wild Boar one and I had the Angus burger with cheese. It was fairly quiet and the waitresses were very attendant. The burgers were great, really juicy and definitely tasted home made. The service was fast and we got two burgers and... More

This used to one of my favourite places to go, especially steak night. It now seems prices are going up and quality of food is going down. They never quite got your order right, but that was part of the charm, now that the quality and prices have changed, the getting your order wrong (from forgetting your starter to wrong... More

Hi I'm sorry to hear of your complaint when you last visited the Duke and I can assure you that we would never accept our standards to drop. It seems on this visit we made a mistake and I apologise for forgetting your starter and our quality of meat is usually great so I'm surprised that your steak was a... More

I am not a fan of pub food or pubs in general but this one exceeded my expectations. Such of nice place to even take your laptop or enjoy an afternoon weekend I usually order the earth burger and I must say this is delicious!

Just had lunch here with the hubby, he ordered chilli nachos and was happy with that. I ordered cod and "Yorkie chips" and "freshly made mushy peas". OK, firstly, what on earth are Yorkie chips?? Because what I had, seemed to be frozen jacket potato chips. The mushy peas were, I suspect, mashed up frozen peas, and as anyone from... More
