Oldest pub in York I believe! Spot on Steak pie (proper with a top and a bottom!) plus huge huge lean ham salad for the calorie counter (not even on menu) - lovely welcoming staff. Def to be repeated!

Great little pub, low door frames, open log fire, black and white beamed building. Fine choice of beers and ales, food is very reasonably priced. Well worth a visit one a cold crisp evening

Been here before and it had had a lovely atmosphere so was happy to go again, but won't be repeating it after this time.

Beautiful old black and white building. Very atmospheric and plenty bits and bobs to be looking at while you enjoy a beer! In contrast outside there is a modern beer garden. Lovely place.
