Not our first time at the Duke of York, but after our Sunday Roast, I just had to comment. Without a doubt, the best roast I've ever had in ANY restaurant. Great portions, all the trimmings you could want and very reasonable price. Gorgeous Yorkies! The pub itself is a diamond, but a shame about the slightly rough exterior. But... More

We passed this pub several times on our way into Cowes village - on first glance the exterior does not attract but appearances in this case were deceptive! On our last day we decided to book Sunday lunch and how glad were we that we did! The interior has a great atmosphere with a nautical theme - the Staff were... More

Good basic pub food and drink. Pretty standard pub menu (this is not a gastro pub) scampi, steak, chicken, steak and ale pie etc.Good service, comfortable and clean, what's not to like. As good, or better, as any where at the price. I will go back. Decent and well priced wine selection as well.

Nautical themed decor - very much pub grub, but nothing wrong with that at all! Friendly welcoming staff, one of the nicest steak & ale pies I've ever had - large portions & reasonable prices. No issue with recommending!

We ate here last night. I ordered the liver and bacon from the specials menu. It was delicious and cooked perfection. The portion size is very good and the liver was so tender it melted in my mouth, honestly it was just like eating pate. My friend had the cod and chips. The size of the portion was much more... More

Stayed at the Duke of York as part of a business trip and found the staff really welcoming and the pub itself very charming. The nautical touches in the pub are nice and although they don't appear in the rooms themselves, the rooms are comfortable and a good place to crash after a day's sailing. About the only thing I...

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
