“Good stuff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014 via mobile

Been here a couple of times now and really rate it. Very tasty English food served at a high standard. Nice traditional decor with plenty of candles and mood lighting as well as a great beer selection. Don't forget this is also a pub as well as a restaurant so can get a little rowdy at the bar and the toilets are a bit worse for wear but the restaurant is spot on.

“Decent but not amazing ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014 via mobile

Good selection of drinks at the bar. Very atmospheric interior and candle-lit. Most of the seats are uncomfortable. You can have interesting old furniture which is comfortable.
Food menu looked good- so went to get a table, but gave up when nobody came to serve us. Really poor, as they barely had any customers.

“Very atmospheric!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

Popped in for a drink with my husband whilst staying in York. Thought about having an evening meal, ( as the menu looked tasty) but the service was so slow at the bar we decided against it!
Lovely ambience to the place, ( like stepping back in time ) so would recommend for this reason.

I will look in to why the service was not up to speed, but this is not something that we have had an isssue with in the past as we pride ourselves on our speedy and quality customer service.
I hope you will try us out again as you would not be disappointed with our tasty menu.
