Duke of York Isle of Wight

My mate Glenn and me always do the Isle of Wight festival and we always stay at the Duke of York. The Cass mob Sally and Barry run a smashing business with a casual but professional touch. The breakfasts are all individually cooked ,so no mass piles of sausages and eggs awaiting around for guests... read more

The Duke of York is a great pub and restaurant. If every pub / restaurant in England was like this I would be a very happy man. There is a hotel on top but it doesn't feel like you are in a hotel restaurant at all. The traditional pub / dining area is dressed throughout with large and small scale... More

Simply the best staff here. We drunkenly managed to leave our kitty lying around on the bar at the end of the evening. In the morning the staff returned it intact. Comfortable rooms - not spectacular - but the breakfast was. This is a great budget hotel that I can't recommend enough. The staff simply make the place.

What a find - may not have been the smartest pub on the block, but their Sunday Roast Dinners cannot be faulted - take note all you carveries mass produced pubs! I had the sucullent Roast Beef and my husband the equally sucullent Roast Lamb - lashings of meat with home made crunchy on the outside & fluffy on the... More

Two pints of beer and a half of cider on a hot day, all very warm. The bartender's explanation: "The first pints out of the pumps are warm on a day like this because they have been sitting in the pipes since lunchtime". Four of us had dinner, three were OK, mine was terrible. The menu said grilled, filleted sardines.... More

Been here for breakfast a few times. Normally pretty good, although not the cleanest. A bit greasy and cups and plates have not been washed very well... Breakfast also finishes at 10.30 which is a little early in my opinion, especially on a Sunday. They should extend for an hour. Overall though, not bad. I would go back.

Lunched at the Duke of York, Cowes, Isle of Wight. Friendly nautically themed pub. Great range of pub meals and terrific service. Try the bangers, mash and peas; you can't beat them.

We stopped here in June for 4 nights. This used to be the accommodation used by RNLI crews when the training was carried out from the ILC at East Cowes. Thankfully not a lot had changed, from my previous visits. We were located in the annex room and this was ideal. A reasonably sized self-contained room that was cool, clean... More

Ate at this restaurant during a recent visit to York. Food and atmosphere were very good & not too pricey.

A return to an old favourite of mine in Cowes. Once again, we were delighted the establishment; cuisine and staff. They could not be more accommodating. We all had a great meal here.
