So many beers and ciders on offer that several visits were needed to do justice to the York Tap which is situated at York railway station. Many of the real ales are from smaller local brewers and that is to be commended

Firstly want to say what a great bar and an excellent choice of beers, but the ladies toilets were an absolute disgrace, no loo roll so toilets were full of the blue paper hand towels and would not flush, no soap to wash your hands and paper towels really overflowing from the bins. Would visit again if they sort the loos out.

Picked up my wife from the station and popped in for a drink.
I immediately picked up the smell of urine and then had to use the gents toilet. It was literally swilling with the proverbial.
A real shame as it has the potential to be a great local.

Hello

Firstly i would like to apologise for the poor cleanliness of the toilets when you visited the York Tap.
We have since your visit, replaced the urinals and refurbished the toilets to try and combat the problem. As you can see from other reviews toilets have been an issue in the past and though we have changed the facilities and layout on 3 occasions, poor drainage meant that the problem still occured. Since we have changed the urinals themselves, plumbed in a whole new system internally with East Coast sorting the plumbing externally we believe we have stopped the problem.

I hope that if you decide to return to York Tap at any stage you will find both the bar and toilets at a state of cleanliness that is more satisfactory.

Apologies again and we look forward to you re-visiting.

Regards

Rich Cockram

the Tap is in a beautiful edwardian building, has a nice atmosphere and no loud music or fruit machines. Just a great selection of beers and some good wines. Located at the railway station.

We found this bar in CAMRAS good beer guide, and what a treat it was, with 19 real ales on hand pump, we tried a few between us and they were all well kept and in good condition. We are thinking of catching the train to York just to revisit this bar!
