We use the Duke regularly as it always provides a good dining experience at a reasonable price close to home. What more could you want. I needed to write a review of our meal this week as it was a bit special. The service, price, atmosphere were all great as usual. However, this week lambs liver, a favourite of mine,... More

Lots of nautical memorabilia which gives this typical English seaside pub a good atmosphere. The meal portions are large if fairly basic.

We came to this B&B as it was a convenient location for a family wedding reception. The pub it's self was ok, friendly staff, food was good, ample portions and comfortable seating. The rooms however were a real let down. Firstly there were 3 rooms for our party, all scattered around the pub, ours was supposed to be a family... More

Like many others posting reviews on TripAdvisor, I know ThEDuke as a lovely friendly place, with a good choice of "proper " beers to savour whilst recounting the day's sailing exploits. I've visited on many an occasion when staying at the UK Sailing Academy down the road, and so had high hopes when planning a swift pint there whilst en... More

We paid £79.00 for b&b the food is good and ample what really gave my party cause for grievance was the room size it's ambiance and the physical... More

We sail our boat across to Cowes and every visit involves a visit to The Duke of York. It may seem strange to write this, as we sail, but one of the attractions is the absence of "yachties" by which I mean the "yahoos" who fill all the other pubs. The Duke is a real pub with real people and... More
