Ok, so we visited on a bustling Saturday but I cannot help thinking that had the pub got its staffing levels right and probably staff who were interested in getting more clients in, then they could have done a lot more trade. I say this as there was a male standing around appearing to be doing very little and watching... More

After reading about the amazing food here, we walked miles in York to find this place...and, the food was very good (though frozen chips????)...but the state of the place was ridiculous!! We were seated upstairs, in a kind of half restaurant half village hall kind of affair, that just looked tired and dated and unkempt. That being said, the staff... More

Stayed in the shambles. Was only people there and told we'd get all the activity as we were the only ones there. Apart from a shadow figure and the door not wanting to lock/unlock properly we didn't see much paranormal activity. The bed was comfy the bathroom was gorgeous and the breakfast was massive, lovely and really filled us up... More

I was booked into the Minster Suite as a surprise 40th birthday treat by my sister. Upon entering the room I was extremely disappointed with the standard of both decor and cleanliness! With a room rate of £130 for one night I was expecting much cleaner, pleasurable accommodation! The carpet was thread bare, with a bathroom match placed strategically over... More

We stayed at the Golden Fleece in York for our first wedding anniversary. We were of course familiar with the reputation that this establishment has and this was part of the reason that we decided to stay overnight. We had been to the Golden Fleece previously but only for a drink. So i did look at previous reviews on here... More

On arriving at this inn on a snow covered day and managing to find some parking round the back we were not greeted very nicely by a bad tempered woman who made us feel we were a nuisance. Having found our room ourselves she just handed us the key like it was to much effort to show us up. The... More

My wife and I had a meal at the Golden Fleece the other night. We both had pie and chips. They were delicious and it was a huge plate full. All of the other food we saw being ordered looked nice to. It is full of character with lots to look at on the walls and behind the bar. It... More

Had dinner here on a Friday night and were a little underwhelmed overall. Staff were quite uninterested, not very friendly. We had a steak and ale pie and a bowl of mussells. Despite empty seats downstairs we were told we had to sit upstairs. No atmosphere, no music, quite cold (no heating?). Like sitting in a hall. Pie was stodgy,... More

My husband and I decided to spend a night in the Golden Fleece. We arrived mid afternoon and had a couple of drinks and both ordered the Beef and Gravy on a Baguette. It didn't take long to arrive, and when it did it was lovely! Thick peices of beef in gravy; it was so big we ate it with... More
