A great Fullers pub in the Pantiles, serving an excellent pint of Pride. Nice interior and not too busy on our Saturday afternoon visit. well worth putting on your crawl list.

Malden man left this review about Duke Of York

A rare old school pub in The Pantiles area, boarded floor, distressed boarded ceiling although the gnarled beams and posts looked to be affectations. Some wood panelling also looked to be deliberately worn but the wonky floor must be real. The words of the old rhyme "The Grand Old Duke of York" are on display as is a shelf of old red suited lead toy soldiers. A roaring fire helped the ambience on a chilly day, there were stacks of logs all around.
Beers from Fullers, Pride, ESB, Seafarers, Oliver's Island plus guesting Hooky Bitter and a cider from Cornish Orchards. Various "nights" advertised, curry, steaks, open mic, not my thing I just prefer the quiet comfy pub of an afternoon which is what I found. A decent spot and a grand drop of ESB.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Duke Of York

First re-visit since the Fuller's takeover, and the place has been substantially refurbished in an upmarket yet traditional beerhouse style. York's dining room at first-floor level. Six handpumps in operation, with Pride and Seafarers, the seasonal Fire Cracker and Jack Frost, the guest Butcombe Christmas Steps (£3.95, and in excellent shape) and Cornish Orchards Vintage Cider. Also has ten keg taps to the rear or the bar dispensing a good selection of craft beers. Some may miss the old Duke of York, but the place made a really good impression on this occasion.
