Established in 1826, The Duke of York sits at the top of St John’s Wood High Street and still retains much of its original charm. Inside, it’s a warm, welcoming space with a bar and casual dining area – usually full of well-heeled locals – and a more secluded separate dining room that is popular with a post-work crowd looking for great food in a relaxed setting. The comprehensive wine list is regularly updated and offers a good mix of European favourites and new world alternatives. Classic dishes like beer-battered cod with yorkie fries; beef and Guinness sausages with mash potato and onion gravy; and chargrilled rib eye steak feature on the all-day menu. The Sunday Roasts are also highly recommended.

Each time I have booked through open table they have given me a side room rather than main bar . This area has no atmosphere or ambience of the bar for which I went to the Duke of York ! This is unacceptable !
At the last minute there being no alternative have accepted the same but the same spoilt my entire evening!
Duke of York does not relish regulars and sidelines in favour of walk inns !

Thought the service was lovely, the two girls really have character, I’m a waitress myself and think they are doing a great job. LOVE the vegan burger and the price for drinks is also decent!

Good food at fair price, but a bit crowded feel. Seems staff is overworked and a bit stressed. To many tables in tight space, especially ground floor.

The friendly service at the Duke makes it “our” special place to go & take friends visiting London. Everything was outstanding, the seafood risotto out of this world, and we enjoyed a fun evening!!

Simply GREAT! A traditional pub that combines ‘Tradition and Gastro’ Brilliantly! The ambiance and the food amazing, espacially the steaks, not to mention the beer, my husband says the best pint in London and believe me he has ‘sampled’ a few!

The beer is good and food is simple but excellent, I have been a few times now and the Steak I had was one of the best, and defiantly not overpriced. The service is fast and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. With the summer we have just had sitting outside was a real treat, and inside is nice and cosy as well.
