“Good pub grub”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

busy pub just along from the Minster handy to nip into for a meal any time. The service was good as was the selection of food with special offers on certain days.

“good, straightforward pub food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

OK, nothing flashy or pretentious, but a good hearty offering, better in quality and considerably cheaper than quite a few of York's restaurants. A reasonable range on the menu as well as specials, and good real ales and wines to accompany. The Hole is just around the corner from the Theatre Royal so a convenient stop-off before a show. Cheery and helpful staff made this a worthwhile experience all round, and enjoyed by every one of our party of ten.

“Just average pub grub”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013 via mobile

Had lunch here a couple of days ago.
Typical English standard pub food, nothing more, nothing less. It seems that the inventiveness in food has run away from the pub scene. They seem to be all owned by the big Breweries and just churn out the same menus everywhere.
This will certainly not be on my 'must rush back' list!

“Shared platter”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Was recommended, but meal was not anything exceptional, and service was marginal. Meal was a large platter of appetizers, but had a frozen microwave quality. With so many other good options, based on our lunch experience, this would not be the one to choose.

“Really enjoyed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Our B&B host recommended this pub as we were looking for somewhere cheap and nice to eat.
We ended up eating here twice, staff were really nice and there was a good selection of meals which came out hot and tasty and in a reasonably fast time ( it was really busy). Will visit again on our next trip xx
