We decided to eat at the Golden Fleece based on previous experience and was glad to see that, by and large, the experience was a good one.
As we didn't want a heavy meal, we all decided to have the hot beef baguette with chips. We weren't prepared for the size of the baguette or the portion of chips, both of which was more than generous.
The majority of the staff were friendly and efficient in the restaurant area. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the gentleman who was hosting the front bar and who came across as a bit grumpy when he greeted myself and my family.
Given the pub's reputation as being the most haunted in York, the rooms are in keeping with that reputation. The downside though is that the dim lighting isn't helpful for people with eyesight difficulties.
Despite these issues, the Golden Fleece is great value for money, especially as it's in the middle of the tourist district of York.
