We stayed here with our daughter on Sat night in 2 rooms. Certainly has plenty of character.... didn't see any ghost. Makes a change from premier inn which was about same price. Staff let the establishment down very un welcoming and service was poor. Forgot to serve me my breakfast which i pointed out when came to ask if everything... More

My fiancé and i stayed in The Shambles room last night (27th February) and absolutely loved the character of the bedroom and bathroom. The bed was comfortable and we slept well. Dinner was fabulous! HUGE portions for a very reasonable price and as a result we struggled to manage breakfast this morning which was equally huge but very good and... More

The pub was lovely both outside and in. The choice of food and beer was good and the staff were very friendly. Only issue was the atmosphere, as it is known to be haunted then the pub was predominantly full of tourists which i feel spoilt the atmosphere. But would recommend a visit to anyone.

As the oldest pub in York it embraces the fact. It is full of history! Every night there is musical entertainment with a variety performers. Wednesday is the sing around. The York terror Trail starts outside here as well that is definitely recommended too! The staff are all lovely too, and the food is especially yummy!

Whoever has left a review saying that the food here is awful or not upto scratch really needs to address their tastebuds. When we visit York from Manchester, this is where we always eat. We wouldnt eat anywhere else if im truly honest. Its a quirky pub but romantic all the same. Keep up the good work guys x

We stopped here for one night. The room was lovely 'The Minster', breakfast the next morning was good too. I just think £130 for one night is quite expensive, there is nothing special to justify this cost. You are just paying for the privilege of staying in a York's oldest pub. We didn't see any spooky goings on whilst we... More

Other reviewers had said the food and service wasn't great, but being the "most haunted" pub in York, we went anyway. We were pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere was wonderful, The food was brilliant and the staff were very courteous. We liked it so much we returned for our final night in York. We never saw a ghost, but had delicious... More
