Poor Service and flat drinks.
May 2021 • Business
Visited after going to the football on a layover on the way back to Harrogate only to be sat down for 15 mins before our drinks order finally came which was a shame as we then had no time to enjoy the drinks as we had to rush to our train. The drinks were disappointing my friend had a lemonade which was just flat and may as well have been luke warm squash. And my pint was sadly flat and had too much head on it. I understand this might have been a one off but unfortunately the poor service and lacking drinks quality meant that we won’t be visiting again.

Located inside the train station at York. Delightful pub. Great staff. I had the at table service on the platform concourse. Only had a drink whilst waiting for a train but was the best Train Station experience I have had !

Brilliant as ever!

This was always one of the best places in York for good quality real ale. When travelling through York today (by bicycle and train) I took the opportunity to see how they had coped and the result was marvellous. An absolutely first rate pint of TT Landlord and an equally well served pint of Titanic. Wonderful to have quality beer again!

Limited stock but still good

In these challenging times it is no wonder that the York Tap chooses to limit what is available on tap. Keeping quality beer does matter and reputations are built this way for the discerning real ale community. Still a great variety and choice available so don’t think the standards are dropping. Still a fine venue for any traveler wether train bound or otherwise. Dark beers were great. Thank you and keep safe.

Low morale of the rotunda
Aug 2020 • Couples
Visited here a couple of times on a visit to York and the shortcomings of the service previously mentioned I can only back up.

On visit one it was ok, but it took about 10 minutes before we could order a second drink. Despite there being a bouncer on the door a very drunk couple were let in and served who were very loud and behaving questionably. They had no sense of social distancing and kept shooting weird stuff like have we offended anyone. The staff didn’t care and people were made to feel quite uncomfortable. Clearly any riff raff are welcome!

Second visit was one hoping for a quick pint before getting a train. I mean I wouldn’t have come here again otherwise, but for the fact it was there and there was time to kill.

The place was pretty much empty, yet the waitress slowly walked round the pub with no urgency and took orders from a two separate couples who had come in after us. I went to the bar after 15 minutes of being ignored and ordered and the bloke was disinterested. Another 10 minutes lapsed and the train was due before too long so we walked out without having a drink and thankfully not paying.

Sadly the staff are very low on motivation and the place feels very miserable. Don’t waste your time. Station pubs should be geared up for serving people a quick efficient drink and this lot didn’t have a clue.

Slow service
Aug 2020
Visited this pub today to meet some friends. Walked in to a relatively quiet pub, got told when I approached the empty bar area to go and sit with the people I'd arranged to meet. They both had already ordered drinks and were half way through them so I was keen to get a drink. I asked about how to get a drink and was told someone would come over. I then waited and waited and waited. I watched at least 4 other couples/groups come into the pub, be seated, have their details taken and drinks ordered and served whilst I was still waiting. I then, after some considerable time, went to the empty bar and enquired as to how to order a drink as was concerned I was missing something. I was then told someone would be over to take my order. I then waited again and watched other people arrive and be served before me. When finally I did get served there was no apology for the wait, in fact if anything the service was rather abrupt. Not a pleasant experience at all. If customers are going to continue to be served this way it would be a good idea for the staff to acknowledge who comes in when and serve appropriately.
