I have visited Duke of York a fair few Sunday's and the food is always brilliant - the staff are friendly and professional and the rare beef is cooked perfectly.. Hungry people may want to ask for extra potatoes as 3 is a little tight :)

Food was extremely poor. Mashed potatoes made from pelleted re constituted potato, peas solid and not cooked, burger was like cardboard, overcooked and dry despite ordering it rare, pie was like chicken soup in a dish with a few bits of 'stuff' added and crust thrown on top. Extremely poor, the cook should be ashamed to send food of that... More

A welcoming and friendly pub with a charming interior. Although very busy when we visited the service was quick and efficient and we were made to feel very much at home. The beer range is great and the steak and ale pie was probably the best I have ever tasted.

We had a wonderful Sunday lunch at the Duke of York last year, so were both looking forward to the same again. Unfortunately although the service was excellent, the meal was nowhere near as good as last year, the beef was smothered in a thick gravy and the roast potatoes tasted as though they had been re-heated - we were...

I have stayed and eaten at the Duke of York on a number of occasions for over 11 years and I have always found the service very friendly and welcoming. The food has always been excellent and freshly cooked and more than enough to sustain the biggest appetite. The atmosphere is very warm and welcoming and the rooms have all... More

We have eaten at the Duke of York several times, and the food has always been cooked to our requirements. We like steak, and this ranges from Blue to Medium rare, all came out at the same time, and all cooked to perfection. What let the meal down was the attitude of the servers. We ordered 4 deserts, 3 came... More
