Isle of Wight pub 'has genuine character and charm'

An Isle of Wight pub has been praised for its "genuine character and charm" in a review.

Writing for the Isle of Wight Eating Out Guide, Matt pointed out that the Duke of York in Cowes is aptly located halfway up a hill.

He explained that his visit to the pub came as part of a trip to the town with his book club and he chose to eat before meeting with his colleagues, selecting fish, chips and peas from the menu.

"[Judging] by the sizzling batter and tongue-searing temperature, it had literally come straight from the frier," commented the Isle of Wight food critic.

"This made for a delicious, crispy outside, with delicate soft insides coating the piping hot, moist fish."

Matt added that he wanted to give the venue "top marks" for the meal.

Those on Isle of Wight holidays looking for a good meal of fish and chips could follow Matt and fellow critic Cat's advice and head to Corries Cabin in Cowes, which they described as the best sit-down chippy on the island.
