Partner and I went for Sunday lunch carvery on recommendation. Greeted straight away, and service both prompt and friendly throughout. Carvery was good- generous portions of beef, pork, gammon or turkey available, although having lamb would have been nice at Easter. Roasties OK, but suffering from the usual effect of mass catering. Cabbage a bit watery but fine. Peas. Mixed... More

We had a fantastic meal here, it has a very welcoming atmosphere inside. We prefer to sit in the pub end because of how cosy it feels. Food is delicious and reasonabley priced.

This is just the best carvery anywhere; they always have four different roast joints, home cooked to perfection with delicious array of fresh vegetables! Excellent friendly, helpful staff and lovely modern decor!!! It's a must but make sure you book in advance as always sold out!

Called in for dinner again on my way home after a long day away. Received a warm welcome from the staff. Good real ale and an excellent medium rare fillet steak with home cooked chips. Just what I needed. I left replete and content, and will most certainly return when I'm in the area.

Popped in here again recently during the early evening with my wife and granddaughter while on the way home to Hexham from Darlington. This was our 3rd visit here over the past six or so weeks. Each time we have been both the food and service has been very good. We cannot fault either. The Duke of York is one... More

I always have the Dukes chicken and I love it. My husband has had several different meals and liked them all.
