Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A relaxed, friendly restaurant with good quality food, reasonable prices and attentive service. Following a recent lunch visit, we recommend the following dishes: Chicken nachos (the nachos are more like crackers, but fine). Complemented very well by the accompanying sweet jalapeño jam, and cooling guacamole....Goat's cheese and Bruschetta. A substantial starter. Cumberland sausage and mash. (Dreamily buttery, super-smooth mash.) The onion gravy was nice, but we'd have liked a little more. Three bean Chilli. Pleasantly spiced and very filling. Sticky Toffee Pudding and Custard. (Drenched in toffee sauce, which was very thin and runny but tasty). The 4 stars would have been 5, but for the custard, which, like the toffee sauce, was very thin indeed, so the sponge was awash in runny sweet liquid. Not bad, but the nicely made pudding deserved a much thicker, rich custard. We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit, and will certainly return. Thank you to the talented chef, and hard-working waiting staff.More

Booked Christmas Day lunch for all the family, 6 adults and one small child. Never had Christmas Day lunch in a pub before ever, so we were a little bit apprehensive, but we were having a family Christmas holiday locally and decided to try The...Duke of York. We weren't at all disappointed. The food and the service were excellent and the staff were friendly and helpful. Thanks to Gavin, Imogen and their team for making our Christmas special.More

Met with family for a Christmas Eve lunch. Fire was roaring and the staff were extremely welcoming. The food was excellent and despite all of us having at least two courses, the bill was remarkably reasonable. The staff even brought a small bowl of soup,...with fresh bread, to keep our young boy happy while the main courses were being prepared. Fabulous experience for all of us and we will be making this a family tradition!More

We stopped for an unplanned lunch on the way to North Yorkshire… the outside looked appealing so a quick turn around back, we found a warm welcoming pub serving great food at a very reasonable price and with a smile! We ate from the light...bites menu and by no means was this a light lunch… home made fishfinger sandwich with fries and salad! We enjoyed it so much we booked for Sunday lunch on the way home on the Sunday… it was delicious, lots of lovely veggies and plenty of roast meat (4 to choose from) and was remarkable value at £12:50. Again every one of the servers was warm and friendly including Imogen who checked in with us to see if we had had a good break. Highly recommend for great value, tasty pub food.More

We have just returned from an excellent afternoon at the Duke of York. The occasion was my mother's 80th birthday and we had circa 30 guests - family and friends - there for the afternoon in a private area. We have been planning this for...a few months and talking to Imogen, who runs the pub, who has been excellent not only in listening to the detail and requirements of our event, but also giving advice and sharing her experience to help ensure that the quantities and timing of the food were right, and also being very patient and flexible when last minute changes were made from our side. On the day, everything was as it should be and the food was excellent. Again, seeing how the afternoon was flowing, she identified and suggested slight changes that really helped things run smoothly. Throughout, Imogen and the team were friendly and helpful, and we can't thank them enough for helping make my Mam's 80th a success. As I type this, I'm still getting messages from people saying how nice the venue and food was. And while it doesn't matter on an occasion like this, we were also very pleasantly surprised at the final bill! Thank you!More

Driving the A68 towards A1 Monday 1-15 pm. Our search for lunch revealing closed, closed, shut down, business changed emphasis. Depressing. Passing through Fir tree caught a glimpse of a pub with lights on and cars parked. Shot passed, easily done, take care, but turned...round and experienced a well run restaurant. Great affordable food, welcoming hosts and well kept beer. Attention to detail here. If you're there... do it. You'll not regret it.More

We went for Sunday lunch. The restaurant is clearly very popular and was busy but we were seated and served quickly. There was a choice of roast meats; beef, pork, turkey and gammon and diners could choose any 2 meats. I was a little disappointed...at the choice as I was looking forward to having lamb but this was unfortunately not one of the choices. Never mind, I was happy to choose beef and pork. I dislike turkey and I have no idea why anyone would want gammon for Sunday lunch! The lunches arrived and there were plenty of fresh vegetables; carrots, cabbage, peas, mashed and roasted potatoes, parsnips and a swede mash plus stuffing balls and a Yorkshire pudding. The pork was succulent and delicious but unfortunately my beef was far too overdone and dry for me. I like my beef medium but that's a personal choice, my husband loved it as it was. Service was efficient and friendly. Overall a great Sunday lunch experience which I would recommend without hesitation.More
