We stayed on a Thursday night & the city & inn were packed. Parking is about 5 minutes away at Marygate carpark, which the staff were very helpful in helping us find. The Inn is ideally situated for sightseeing, not more than 150m from the Minster. Indeed you could see the spires from our downstairs room. The pub itself is a lovely historic place full of genuine dark oak, low ceilings .........everything that you would expect from an historic in in one of Britain's oldest cities. Staff are friendly & knowledgeable, beer is very good (Timmy Taylor's Landlord being my pick!), food is good (breakfast especially) & rooms are clean. The courtyard is also a beer garden which adds extra space for an afternoon drink. We walked around the city walls & enjoyed all there was to see, the shambles, parks & riverside. Pubs are plentiful & there are many fine individual shops to admire & browse. We will return to York but maybe by train as the Station is a stones throw from the city centre. We walked 8 miles around the city in one day but it didn't feel like it! Then back to The Guy Fawkes to put our feet up & have a pint or three!
