In the past I've had really pleasant visits. Staff have been lovely and food has been great. However, it proves that one bad service can ruin all of that. The bar staff (well, one - I don't blame the others) wrote down an order wrong and blamed my family for saying the wrong food which we only realised when food...

Have visited this place before and had lovely meals but what has gone wrong ? The cottage pie was tasteless and watery and the chips tasted of fish it really was appalling so unlike previous visits . Hope the fleece puts this right such a shame 😟😟

We came in here after a day enjoying the wonders of York. My husband had never been to the city before and was thoroughly charmed. Lovely ambiance at this place, we enjoyed the music and the interior was really nice. We had a small meal, nothing impressive, but over all we enjoyed the Golden Fleece.

Myself and 5 friends stayed here to celebrate one of our friends birthdays. The whole experience staying here was absolutely appalling and very disappointing to say the least. Myself and said others will never return!!!! , not even to have a drink. From the minute we arrived was just a catalogue of distasters. Our rooms although gone past the 2pm...

Popped in couple of pints on Friday afternoon. Was busy but managed to find a seat next to the cosy fire. Food and drinks were,tasty and good value. The atmosphere is dark and spooky with many ghost stories. Staff really friendly. Loved it
