We visit here for a beer or two every time we visit York, unfortunately the only spirits we have encountered the great selection of gins. Great friendly staff, nice selection of lunchtime food well worth a visit
The steak was amazing, the hard sundaes are delightful and not too heavy. I had the cherry brandy one. It was delightful.

Popped in for a couple of drinks. Good range of ales and a wonderful atmosphere although a little spooky!!
Definitely worth a visit, the bar area is small but loads of character. Would certainly recommend.
The exterior, like many of Yorks buildings, is stunning. The place oozes character. Upon entry it felt cramped however We then realised there is a much larger dining area/bar to the rear, where we were seated. The decor is lovely, very shabby/ye olde medieval style,...More
Great Beer, Tasty Food and Lovely Rooms. Had a lovely stay here and grew very fond of the ‘regular’ at the bar. He looks like he may have been there for quite some time but I promise you won’t wait that long.
