Shepherd Neame, Britain’s oldest brewer, offers smart Southwark dwellers a traditional 19th Century pub setting at The Duke of York.

The Venue
A mix of Victorian and modern elements create a light, comfortable setting with a combination of high tables with stools, dining tables and standing areas. Outside there are a few pavement side tables, albeit next to a relatively busy crossing of roads. The emphasis here seems to be as much on the modern as is with the past; a nod to the old and the new.

The Atmosphere
Even mid-week, The Duke of York is busy with students from the nearby Southbank Uni and local office workers on company nights out. Although loud, it is not difficult to find a spot to enjoy a pint and a good conversation away from the noisier groups. The staff are helpful and efficient, which is always good when nerves are slightly frayed by a stressful day at the office.

The Food
As befits the 19th Century character of The Duke of York, the menu is the expected traditional fare of fish and chips and satisfying comfort food. They don't just stick to the traditional however, with a typical bend towards South East Asia, with a Thai flavor to the menu.

The Drink
As this is a Shepherd Neame pub you’ll find the likes of Spitfire, Bishops Finger, Master Brew and the always dependable Whitstable Bay, as well as a number of mainstream lagers, specialty ciders and a decent wine list. For the Friday night office crowd there are plenty of harder options with shots of Jager, Sambuca and Tequila on stand-by.

The Last Word
The Duke of York is a fine pub, which serves the wide Southwark demographic well, whether students, office workers or tourists. A safe bet whether you are looking for a bite to eat or a few good drinks.
