“Good Food and plenty of it”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

A welcoming pub in High Petergate with a very good menu, but beware, the portions are quite large if you intend walking afterwards! Standard menu is very good with a range of sandwiches, burgers, grills etc. Look out for the Special though, which are superb quality.

A goodly range of real ales is on offer for beer drinkers.

“Pub Grub Extraordinaire”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

Great pub to visit either for lunch or an evening meal. Great selection of food and good value for money. Very nice atmosphere, though it does get very busy as the food is so nice. You may have to wait, but the drinks are reasonably priced - so well worth a visit.

“Good offer - great food”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

Visited on a Wednesday night (Grill night) when you receive a free bottle of wine when two grill meals are ordered.

First surprise was that some of the choices on offer started at £7.50. Thought they'd be more expensive with such an offer.

I chose a sixteen ounce sirloin (£15.00) and my wife had gammon. Both meals were exceptionally tasty and well cooked. The steak was a perfect medium as requested, succulent and tasty. Infact one of the best steaks I've had in years.

The free bottle of wine was a Hardy's shiraz which complemented the food.

Naturally the bar was busy on such a night, but we were well looked after my two hard working young people who managed the bar and the food side of things.

So good was the food that I will try to ensure my next visit to York includes a Wednesday night.
