This is a great little pub with rooms. It's been recently refurbished - the rooms are small but comfortable and well furnished - and the staff are friendly and helpful. The food is hearty and reasonably priced (steak night delivers two very good steaks and a bottle of house red for just over £30) and the real ales are well... More

We were in York to visit our daughter and as it was the Bank Holiday weekend decided we wanted to book a table for Sunday Lunch. My daughter chose the Gillygate and when I rang to book was told we wouldn't be disappointed and I can definitely say we weren't. We all had roast beef which was delicious with very... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night . 24/08/14 . We expected the usual pub bed and breakfast ... far from our assumption . The rooms were furnished and decorated to a very high quality . The staff were amazing and the food also . We will definitely return soon . Highly recommended .

The pub had just been beautifully renovated, had a lovely feel. Our room was very comfortable with newly fitted en-suite. The location was brilliant for the centre of York, didn't need to use the car. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good. Only one downer was that the weather was so hot we had to have... More

I would recommend this B&B over any other location I stayed in York. The facilities are new yet have great character, it is superbly located and very hospitable. I will defenitely return here on my next visit to Yorkshire!

Very nice hotel, great location. We experienced a lot of noise from next door in the morning as it was an interconnecting room (not by choice) and the water system made a lot of noise which we reported so this has probably been addressed. Breakfast was good. Friendly staff. Enjoyable stay.

The location is good for central York attractions and had just been redecorated on our visit. The twin room was clean and spacious. Decent shower. Comfortable bed. We had great weather and the room was therefore too warm, could have used a mobile fan on this occasion. Decent breakfast, pleasant staff, good value. Would use again for similar occasion.

Nicly renovated pub with a good atmospher, good beer, nice staff and better than average pub food. Well worth a visit particularly on a sunny day in the beer garden. The team are very welcoming and chatty.
