So-called after the nursery rhyme, the hill on which The Duke of York sits boasts fantastic views over Porters Wood and Woodbridge, and has tangible rustic charm in its oaken and brick furnishings. The seasonally-prepared menu can be savoured by the welcoming hearth in winter or in the al fresco beer garden in summer.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Duke of York menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Duke of York ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

Situated in Woodbridge, The Duke of York is just 18 minutes’ drive from the busy Ipswich.

    My wife & I have visited this restaurant on many occasions but did not enjoy our experience this time. Food was luke warm. The sharing platter had a couple of slices of meat each. The platter was made up of roast potatoes. The gravy was underneath the food on platter so meal was very dry. The starter was a joke, no sauce on seafood cocktail £ calamari was stringy & tough not worth nearly £6 each. Service was very slow. We waited so long to pay our bill that we finally took it to the bar ourselves to pay. Probably will not visit again which is sad as we used to live it there. Seems like new management.

    Very slow in bringing the drinks to the table.
    Food would be good but not hot enough. I think the fish and chips had been standing in the kitchen for too long. Again this is a service issue. The vegetables were very good, a real bonus as not many restaurants provide vegetables.

    Great food, nicec staff, but lousy service. 10 minutes to have order taken. 20 minutes for a starter, main course 50 minutes. Shame!

    We were in a party of six. Two of our party chose rump steak. One to be cooked rare and another medium to well. Both were virtually impossible to cut as they were the toughest, chewiest cuts of meat they said they have ever had. The rest of us had grilled chicken and gammon which were ok but very dry as they were all over cooked. Accompanying elements on the plate were very sparse for the price of the dish. Desserts were ok although nothing particularly memorable. The very best part of my entire meal was the tia Maria liquor coffee at the end, it was delicious. Sadly I can’t say the same for the rest of the experience. This is such a shame as the location and ambience of the Duke of York is very nice but suffice to say we won’t be returning.

    Excellent value for money. Tom, our server, was very attentive and made us feel very welcome. Lovely friendly atmosphere and loved the fact that we were not rushed.

    Hot & Cold - comes to mind! Weve had some good experiences here and some that fell short of the mark. Last night was a combination of the two. The service was good. Disappointed that the one item on the Specials Board that I wanted to order, was no longer available!! If yesterday was Saturday and we had arrived late, then I could have accepted that; but at 7.00pm on a very quiet Tuesday evening, Im not so sure. I specifically asked how good the rump steaks were and the Chef said "they didnt look too good." So I ordered a sirloin. Very disappointed that it was full of gristle - which meant that I lost a third of the meat. Not good. This is not the first time this has happened. I think the restaurant should seriously look at changing their meat provider. The other meals were good and so was the dessert platter.
