Stopped by for a quick drink, got great bar service from a lovely girl telling us about all the ghost walks ect to do. So later on we popped back for food. Huge portions, in fact that big I couldn't eat my main after the starter, so bear in mind starters are fairly big :) all good. Quick service good... More

I love this kind of place and I wish there was more near me. I love that the pub is original and it has the sloped floors. If I lived in York I'd be in here 24/7 not seen any spirits but I would be scared senseless if I did anyway haha :)))

We decided to try the food at the Golden Fleece on Saturday night having seen other diners food on the Friday night. I was not disappointed. I had the giant Yorkshire pud with Nash and gravy and giant is the absolutely perfect description. This dish is not for the faint hearted, you really do need to be hungry. Food was... More

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... More

Not eaten here for a few years so decided to try lunch when I was in York. Went for the steak pie and i have had better steak pie in a hospital canteen. The pie was smothered in gravy which we realise was to hide the pie once we tucked in. Crust was burnt. Meat in side was dry and... More

Recently stayed at the Golden Fleece, Very quaint and loads of history. Stayed in the most haunted room, again quaint and the beds were very comfortable. Stayed in for the evening meal after seeing other peoples being brought out. Very rarely now days do you get real home made food that is not just from the wholesaler and just heated... More

We visited the fleece after having a disappointing experience at another pub. Didn't eat, but enjoyed the drinks and service. A very old fashioned pub, but was very busy for a Sunday afternoon. Will eat here next time we're in York.

The food here is incredible. My partner and I both opted for mushroom soup as a starter. It was faultless. Proper homemade soup. For main course I opted for steak pie and my partner the beef and Yorkshire pudding. Both were lovely but we could not finish them. Will definitely return but will not be having starters. The staff are... More
