3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Went in here with my husband after shopping in the Shambles, this pub is definitely hyped up to tourists as supposedly haunted and because of this it's quite disappointing when you actually get in there as there's it lacks a good pub atmosphere most of all. It's fairly small inside like a lot of the pubs in York, the decor... More

We came for a two night stay, and weren't disappointed. This pub is so quirky. The clocks run backwards, the floors are crooked and there's a resident skeleton at the bar. If you want luxury then go and stay at a five star hotel. But if you want to stay in an inn steeped in history then look no further.... More

Very nice people helped us as we enjoyed our visit to this haunted building. The skeleton at the bar was a laugh. And for an instant, the man seen out of the corner of my eye, doing a bit of trim work painting in an upper story window, gave me the chills. Fine place for a stop while touring York.

Me and the wife visited this Pub over the week-end of the 26th and 27th of July, we did not eat here so some of the comments regarding the food are not applicable to us, however.... On the Friday night there were 6 or 7 guitarists playing together and it was a really enjoyable atmosphere, so much so that we... More

Stayed in York for one night and looked to see menu for later that day. We liked the look of the Sunday roast and said that we would return. We were advised to book as they said they tended to get busy in the evening. We asked if we could have a table at the back near the window and... More

This is our 5th visit to The Golden Fleece and yet again it was fantastic. The rooms have had new bathrooms fitted and were spacious and clean. The bed was really comfy. The breakfast is awesome, enough to set you up for the day! Well worth a visit.

Stayed for one night in Lady Pecketts room. Room was large with old/gothic style furniture. Bathroom was modern. The bed was really comfortable despite the slope on the room due to the old building. Well stocked hospitality tray with loads of tea and coffee. No hairdryer though so take one if you will be needing one. Room was clean but... More
