This is just the best carvery anywhere; they always have four different roast joints, home cooked to perfection with delicious array of fresh vegetables! Excellent friendly, helpful staff and lovely modern decor!!! It's a must but make sure you book in advance as always sold out!

Called in for dinner again on my way home after a long day away. Received a warm welcome from the staff. Good real ale and an excellent medium rare fillet steak with home cooked chips. Just what I needed. I left replete and content, and will most certainly return when I'm in the area.

Popped in here again recently during the early evening with my wife and granddaughter while on the way home to Hexham from Darlington. This was our 3rd visit here over the past six or so weeks. Each time we have been both the food and service has been very good. We cannot fault either. The Duke of York is one... More

I always have the Dukes chicken and I love it. My husband has had several different meals and liked them all.

The Duke of York is a fantastic pub - real ales, tasty food and most importantly it is Child and dog friendly. Serving all day and located of the A68 it is the perfect drop in place for a bite to eat / drink also. Staff are always polite and accomodating. We have never had a bad meal or experience... More

We are locals to the Duke of York and always leave with a smile on our faces and a very happy tummy. Food is comforting, yet unique and very fresh. The surroundings are warm and friendly and the staff really know how to make you feel at home. Have always recommended this place to anyone who hasn't tried it out... More

Tried here after reading some reviews. However all six of us left our lunch due to it tasting like turps! Was totally inedible. Mentioned to a member of staff when paying who simply said "turps, I will tell them" no apology or anything and a bill of nearly £50
