Staff and surroundings pleasant although nothing has really changed in the decor in the last 25 years. The Sunday roast was nothing to write home about, in fact I cook a better one, on the plus side I didn't have to wash up.

Pleasant surrounding. Staff friendly and efficient. Food only average. One of our party members had cornbeef hash swimming in fat. Other dishes were lacking in taste.

Cannot fault this place. Ate here several times whilst working in the area. Had a different dish each time and each one was fantastic - and huge! The staff are friendly and approachable. I would definitely consider travelling out of my way to eat here next time I'm in the area.

My husband and I stumbled across this pub whilst out for a walk whilst we were staying in the York area. What a find. The pub was very busy but they fitted us in. If I was planning a visit I would definitely pre-book. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and there was a good choice on the menu.... More

We all chose the fish pie with vegetables which was delicious and filling. The atmosphere is old world and friendly. They serve a nice pint of ale. Recommended for a nice lunch.

Friendly staff menu was excellent and most things could be made for my gluten/ wheat free diet. Good atmosphere. The pub was filling up when we left so plenty of people know the pub. Hope they continue to serve excellent food
