Been here a few times and always impressed with the food, cooked really well with great service and fantastic surroundings. Either for sunday dinner or a lunch out in town you cant do much better for the price and quality. Looking forward to our next visit.

Very nice hotel. Looks fantastic on both the inside and outside, with huge outdoor sitting area perfect on a sunny day. Hotel is perfectly located, 10 mins walk from the train station, right in the town centre and a 2 minutes walk from York Minster, the park and the river. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The room itself... More

We were looking for a nice place for an afternoon outdoor drink and this place didn't disappoint. A nice range of beers and a pleasant environment, this is a good place to take the weight off your feet and enjoy a drink in the sunshine.

Having passed here a few days ago we thought it looked very nice with people sitting outside in the sun enjoying their drinks. Unfortunately the weather was rather wet today when we decided to give it go.
