Tris C left this review about The Duke of York

Another late 18th century pub, rebuilt over one hundred years later for Charrington’s.
In new hands since March 2017, this has largely been reinvented as a style bar with ‘boutique’ rooms above. Bare boarded of course, the bar frontage is field panelled, painted a smoky blue; the bar back is a flimsy tubular affair. Smoky blue paint has been applied to dado height match boarding, then pale grey to the ceiling, which is an indeterminate dark colour. Furniture is fairly normal, with flowers in little glass bottles to tables. Décor arrives in the form of some knickknacks and of all things, an upright piano bolted to a wall. Lighting in the main, comes from crystal chandeliers and music played, broadcast from a Black music radio station, with irritating DJ’s vocal interventions.
One pump was unused, thereafter the barman was serving up the relentless London tedium that is Pride and Doom; my half of Goose Island IPA, price deleted, but more than £3.00 a half, no doubt.
This is by no means a great place. The Groundhog Day ale selection coupled with live radio is incentive enough not to return.

One room with bar to the rear. Three hand pumps - only one actually serving weak ale. Mot impressive.

A lovely Victorian exterior that unfortunately doesn't extend into the inside which is a small and pretty turgid affair with dirty scuffed wood floor, white and blue walls and a general air of ‘meh’. The only real thing of interest are the original large obscured glass windows. Three pumps with just Sambrook Wandle on which was undrinkable despite two pints being poured through. Exchanged for a Yakima Red that looked dredged out of the Thames – not a cloudy beer in my experience from quality outlets. The ale stayed on, awaiting another victim whilst I pondered how much of the Red I should drink before calling gut rot. Pretty grim really, this place looks like it’s going to go under sooner rather than later – impressive given that WhatPub says it came under new management in March this year. Proof that any idiot can try and run a pub, I suppose. Literally nothing to reommend this place.
