I love the atmosphere and character in this pub and when you first walk in you almost feel as if you are already drunk because the floors slope so much, even our two drinks had lop sided heads on them. There was a good atmosphere on New Year’s Eve and just before we left, three young lads had just started... More

This is a delightful and quirky pub situated in the heart of York with a great view of the Shambles. We were booked into the Minster suite for one night - a luxury treat for our wedding anniversary weekend which had been extended to meet up with family. Unfortunately the two nights previous stay in the Premier Inn (at a... More

We had booked a table hear because I had heard the food was quite good and not too expensive being so close to Christmas. We were greeted by a young man at the door who said we couldn't come in as it's full. I told we had a table booked so he reluctantly let us in. We waiting a while... More

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
