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.

Called in for a drink with a group of friends to be told they had called last orders and would have 5 minutes to finish a drink if we bought one. It was just before 10:00 pm. I thought it was called hospitality for a reason. We'll walk past next week.

We've been here many times , stayed the night , dined and just called for drinks and we couldn't walk by without calling in.
The weather was lovely so it was straight out the back into the courtyard.
Lovely spot with socially distanced seating.
Staff as usual are spot on and choice of drinks is pretty damned good.
If you want a drink etc in one of the most famous pubs in York then this is the place.
No hesitation in recommending the Guy Fawkes Inn.

Was recommended this bar by a local as we were trying to find our bearings as first time visitors to York and am so pleased we followed his recommendation. Great bar, outdoor seating area was spacious but yet cosy due to the heaters and decorations etc and the service was excellent. Would definately recommend this bar and will be visiting again on our next trip to York!

What an awesome place. i booked as i work away and hadn't seen my husband for a couple of weeks, when i mentioned this to a lady called leona (again hope it's spelt right) she went out of her way to give us the loveliest romantic room. the location is perfect. the rooms are really beautiful, and quirky, everything i love. the bar and restaurant are immaculate and gorgeous as are all of the staff. i never wanted to leave. iv visited york a million times, but this was my favourite time and I will definitely return to this hotel every time. lovely atmosphere, dealing with the covid situation brilliantly just perfect. exceeded all of my expectations

Overall an excellent hotel and bar. Rooms are really comfortable with everything you need and more. Staff are really friendly and cater to your every need. We come once a year and most definitely be staying in the Guy fox Inn.

My partner and I have visited this pub many times for drinks and decided to try out the food today. It was absolutely delicious! All homemade and cooked perfectly. The bar and waiting staff are really friendly and efficient, especially Jackie, she has a great sense of humour! We will definitely be back!

Good food, top Sunday roast. However, staff were shocking. Very rude and didn't deal well with complaints. Didn't bring food we asked for and when requested more veg forgot about it. Waitress didn't know what the meals were so ended up ordering something which we didn't want, Timmy Taylors beer was flat. When we complained about our service the manager laughed offered a nominal 10 % off the bill which was a joke, then sarcastically said 'you going to review us then?' Shame the food was spoilt by immature management and rude and unpleasant staff.

Nice old pub with great staff in a lovely location.
Only gripe is with the half board deal. You pay £25 extra for what is advertised as a half board stay. Then after your meal you get the bill for what should just be the drinks, yo find that you had to pay for some of the food you had! The deal is misleading and at no point are you told that your £25 Just gives you £25 off of your meal. To avoid this scam do not gave the half board deal. There are lots of other places around York where you can eat.

We enjoyed a few drinks with friends. There are a few different seating areas so we chose a quieter are where we could catch up. The beer selection was varied so everyone got the style they liked. Would go again.

We had a lovely home-cooked meal in this historic building which we thoroughly enjoyed. The quality of the food and the standard of service were so much better than in the chain restaurants we visited while in York. And the atmosphere was perfect, conjuring up thoughts of Guy Fawkes' childhood!

Perfectly located and only steps from York Minster, well worth a visit for good food that will not disappoint.
