I have to say I have written many reviews for Tripadvisor and have only published one bad review for a restaurant. My experience at the Guy Fawkes Inn was such that I felt compelled to write this review. Note we did contact them prior to publishing this and have had a response. They will be addressing the points we raised... More

My friends and I ducked into this pub when it started to rain and were pleasantly surprised. The most fantastic thing about this pub is the view, it is situated right next York Minster! The staff were friendly and our drinks were reasonably priced.

My wife and I decided to have a few days away just us without the kids for a few days break, we've been to York before and loved it but only stayed in premier inns etc. Last time we came we decided to stay more in the heart of town and in an inn. We did an Internet search and... More

Stayed for 1 night for a friends birthday. Nice hotel. Check in not great - nobody seemed to know how to do it. We stayed in room 1, next to the boiler room so it was incredibly hot!!! Had Sunday lunch there, food was ok but really poor vegetarian choice- only risotto. Shame there was no veggie roast option.

We visited this place for drinks on a busy Saturday afternoon, the bar area is very small and the seating area opposite the bar is very dark, too dark actually so we sat outside, don't think we will revisit this pub.there a far more better traditional pubs in York to visit.

I am trying to think of something negative to say about the Guy Fawkes Inn but I just can't find anything! Location is excellent & it is literally situated across the road from the beautiful York Minster! On arrival our friendly greeting was made even better when we were told that we had received a free room upgrade & were... More

Our experience at the Guy Fawkes Inn was fantastic. My wife and I had a couple of drinks, the beef roast and the chicken roast. Both dishes tasted great and were almost too much to finish- excellent value for money. The beer garden is very comfortable and the umbrellas protected us from the rain. Another little highlight was a tour... More

Popped into here for a quick drink was very dark inside and the room we sat in was very cramped, i guess the darkness was to represent guy Fawkes dark side. Drinks priced slightly higher than your normal local but i gather cause its a Hugh tourist attraction this is why but this can be said of most of the... More

Really enjoyed our stay here in such a great central location right next to the Minster. Loved the four poster we had for the night and the effort put into keeping it as close to traditionally decorated as possible. Would have 5 starred it but did not get a chance to sample the dining beyond the breakfast (which was more... More

The Guy Fawkes Inn stands next to York Minster and was the birthplace of the notorious plotter, Guy Fawkes. The Inn offers 4-star rooms with free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs and home-cooked, AA Rosette food. Decorate with antique furniture and Italian fabrics, the rooms feature handmade beds, tea/coffee making facilities and bathrooms with complimentary toiletries from H2K of Harrogate. Many rooms have views of York Minster, the city or the courtyard towards the rear of the Inn where Guy Fawkes was born. The Guy Fawkes Inn retains many original features including the timber staircase, gas lighting and real log fires. Dine by candlelight in the Inn's restaurant, which serves traditional pub-food using locally sourced ingredients. The bar stocks a wide range of real ales and a broad selection of wines. The world famous Ghost Walk leaves every night just around the corner. York Theatre Royal and the National Railway Museum are both just a 5-minute walk away. ... more   less
