Stayed for 2 nights. About 15min walk into town. Room was clean and warm. Tea and coffee making facilities WiFi a bit hit and miss and would have liked an option of a cooked breakfast but otherwise not too bad

Nice pub, rooms ok, but dated. Biggest problem was the light packed in in the bathroom, twice we asked for it to be replaced, but no one bothered meaning we had to use the toilet by torchlight & unable to have a shower. We won't be returning.

Well we have visited this pub a few times now when we visit York and the last visit has seen the pub modernised and it looks really nice. It is a friendly little local pub with friendly staff and customers.

Nice pub friendly staff and the bedrooms were ok too. We got what we paid for. And free parking which was a bonus. Only about 20 minutes walk to town. I would stay here again if I am to go to york again.

I've not stayed here. All I can say is we visited for casual drink, stayed for three, found a beautifully refurbished bar and couldn't fault it. Locals are fine. End of day they are the place's bread and butter. Nothing wrong with Old Grey Mare. We did meet a couple staying there. For the price they were happy and on...

My wife and I decided after a day trip to York to stay over so we could go out on the night and have some fun. I went online and this seemed a bargain and located in a nice area. However upon arrival we went into the bar and it was full of drunken locals. A man at the bar...

After a family member booked us here I read reviews and worried it would be a dump, but I shouldn't have worried. It was a casual place in an old building, so we checked in with the bartender at the pub downstairs, the floors creaked a bit, for sure it was not a fancy place. But it was charming, convenient,...
