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.

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!
Staff really friendly and helpful.

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.

1pm lunch whilst going to cricket, although very busy it was extremely well organised, service was good and steaks were pretty good quality. We were fed and watered and out into the rain ! in an hour and a half. No cricket great lunch.

Disappointed after all I’d heard about it from locals. Food choice was predictable and average quality. Atmosphere spoiled by man, perhaps Caribbean, ‘singing’ outside our windows for at least an hour with no move by staff to move him on.

I was only in town for a few days and decided on the Duke of York because it was nearby. A candle-lit table was waiting for me when I arrived and the staff was super welcoming and attentive all night. The sweet potato, fig, goat cheese salad was one of the best things I have ever put in my mouth. The steak and ale pie was amazing. I wish I could have finished it. I loved the Duke of York and would go back any time.

In a word ‘BRILLIANT’ food, service, ambiance, ALL EXCELLENT!! A truely AMAZING find, my husband said the best pint of lager he has had in London ( he has had a few)!!
We had the steaks which were delicious but every meal that was being served up looked delicious.
A two minute walk from St. John’s Woodtube station so very easy to get to and find.
Will DEFINITELY be back, another statement from my husband, this will be my local from now on!!
