Last evening I was in a group of 8 middle aged drinkers who had been enjoying the fresh air in the beer garden at the Golden Fleece. The onset of darkness meant that we came into the rear bar. WE ordered another round and sat down at a table. The staff, having taken our money asked us to vacate the... More

My boyfriend and I came here twice while in York, the first time just for a drink and the second time for a meal. The food was really good however we both ordered sausage and mash in a Yorkshire pudding and found that the portion size was overwhelming. They offer a great range of drinks and the staff are really... More

Stayed here on a Friday night as my boyfriend loves York and as it was his birthday I decided to book the Golden Fleece as he loved the place when we visited last time and he is really into paranormal and ghosts etc and as the most haunted place in York it was the perfect place to stay. When we... More

My friend & I had lunch there on Saturday 06th September 2014. I loved the quirky pub, but the food was poor & one male staff member a bit rude!! I had 'Homemade' cottage pie. The actual minced beef was lovely, but SMASH mashed potato just plonked on the top.... Tinned peas & tinned carrots, although the chips were nice... More

We went here for lunch last week and left 100% satisfied! The food was AMAZING! Probably one of the best pub meals I have ever had (and definitely one of the biggest)! You definitely get what you pay for. The ambiance was certainly not lacking because of the stories surrounding the supposed hauntings in the building. The staff were friendly... More

We only called in to this quirky pub for a quick drink but Steph behind the bar was so delightful and wonderfully obliging suggesting she take our photos. She is a true asset to your business and because of her we stayed longer. Best wishes from 1 Kiwi and 2 Aussies.

The Golden Fleece is a fine old establishment, literally next to York Minster steeped in history with a wealth of unspoilt period features. The 4 rooms available each comes with its own story and are tastefully decorated in period appropriate style. The service from all the friendly staff was excellent and the Food was of the highest calibre. I enjoyed... More

Having stayed at the Golden Fleece a few times previously we were quite happy to book again.Oh dear we were so disappointed,our room the Lady Peckit was awful.I don't think it had been cleaned properly,dust everywhere needed vacuuming and hairs in the shower(short curly ones)!!!Vastly overpriced even with the breakfast.Sorry but not up to standards.Needs a good cleaning...........

We popped into this pub for the first time on a hot Summer's afternoon. It is very atmospheric and full of historical character. Seating outside at the back. There are lots of things on the walls to look at (death masks etc). Service was ok.
