Visited here on a Saturday night and very pleasantly surprised. We've been to York quite a few times and never been in here before. We went to York for the weekend, and ate in here twice. Lovely pub with very friendly bar staff. The food was lovely and there was a big selection of drinks, gin being my favourite. There's also a beer garden. Little gem of a place, I'm sure we'll be back!

Thank Gill W

This pub is hidden away down an alleyway, not far from the cathedral. As soon as you walk inside the character & atmosphere hits you. It claims to be one of the oldest pubs around and you can see why. Its easy to imagine people of centuries ago drinking and making merry in the various sectioned off booths & rooms.

We had a couple of drinks here and people watched, the menu looked good and the service was good also. It had 3 seperate beer gardens, which were fairly small.

Definitely one to visit.

Lovely old pub with stone floors and big fire places. Lots of seating including wooden settles. Nice court yard.
We didn’t eat but there’s quite a varied menu.
We did have some nice Irish coffees and mulled wine.

Just of the main street and one of the oldest pubs in York.
Loads of character and history and definitely worth a visit.

Terrible service. No apology for late food arrival and missing items. We saw other people being served food after we had placed our order. After 30 min I had to ask how much longer we had to wait. The barman went to see but never came back. The waitress served our food with only one knife , we decided to just eat . We realised items were missing just has we finished and asked the waitress who told us the chef just laughed and shrugged his shoulders. We gave the waitress 4 chances to explain why such a long wait who then said she had just forgot us. We really don't like complaining and understand things could go wrong if the pub was busy but it was very quiet. It`s a shame because the pub has a very nice feel about it with 3 beer gardens but will be going elsewhere on our next visit to beautiful York

Dear Paul C

I am very sorry for your experience with us, this is not what we aim to achieve when delivering service.

I will be speaking to the team about the way they delt with your question as this is highly inappropriate and not the way we handle complaints

I do hope however you will give us a second chance and allows us to change your mind I can personally promise your previous experience will not happen again.

Again we hope you will give us another chance and visit us again soon
