Had Sunday lunch here with my son and it was beautiful reasonably priced well presented plenty of it there's a couple of things I would recommend changing Like adding more cheese to the cauliflower cheese and tweaking the gravy a little bit just give me a bit more flavour apart from that perfect.

We were staying on the caravan site attached to the pub (it's very quiet and children are not allowed!) and we couldn't be bothered to cook after a long day in York so we went to the Lysander. Surprise number one - the restaurant part of the pub was booked out we didn't think we needed to as it was... More

Nearly didn't go in as we had to negotiate the fug of the smokers right next to the front door in order to reach the bar. Inside there was a large and noisy tv showing football, which is ok if you like it, but not everybody does, including me. However we moved into the small separate dining area and ordered... More

Luckily used a few sources to find this place as trip advisor map puts it in Easingwold which it isn't. I've added a photo of the location to help. Went for the Sunday carvery with friends and their little boy. Enjoyed by all.

Excellent food for very reasonable prices. The outside area looks and feels great since the refurbishment. Quiz on a Thursday evening. Live sport on the screens in the main bar and live music every week. I'd say the twice cooked chips that go with most meals are the best in York

We visited on a Sunday as a family. The Carvery is the only option available and it makes for an excellent Sunday lunch. There is ham, turkey, pork and beef and a great selection of vegetables and Yorkshire pudding. We have been many times and for £9.95 if offers great value and much better than cooking! It is always busy... More

We have been to the Lysander Arms a number of times over the years and to be honest we keep on forgetting how good their Sunday Lunch is. Recommend that you book your table if you are a party of four or more. Popular all year around and during the Summer they have a lovely beer garden with tables to... More
