Visited this character pub with a group of 10 last week. The ambience was cosy and full of character, with many old advertising signs,a prohibition of swearing!! The menu was very comprehensive and beware , ,these portions are huge, adequate even for youthful appetites. A chicken salad consists of half a roasted chicken accompanied by a large salad and a jacket potato with chilli consists of a monster potato with a generous helping of chilli hot enough to send one into orbit. For the aficionados there is a great range of real ales. The staff are friendly and efficient and a large party was catered for effectively. Would definitely return if visiting York.

A party of 10 of us visited The Maltings yesterday and we had a great time! It is very close to the Hop on Hop off bus stop which is what attracted us to this venue as well as it getting good reviews in the Good Pub Guide. It serves very good pub food with generous portions of good quality. We had pre-booked and they were well prepared for us. The pub is full of character with all kinds of old signs around the building and is very different from the norm which was a welcome change!

They offer a good menu with lots of choice and very amusing comments about the various items which we found hysterical! All food is freshly prepared and we all enjoyed our choices! The chilli says it is hot and o boy - it is HOT! They also have a good choice of beers which the men thought was great!

The landlord and staff were all very friendly and we highly recommend this pub. We will definitely return when revisiting York.

A York real ale institution for many years and a forerunner in the real ale revolution in the 90's.

Called in today for a pint and some lunch, roast chicken & chips, and cheesy chips for the wife accompanied with a couple of well kept pints.

Portions are large and the chips are 'proper chips' not frozen, excellent value for money, been coming here for years and will continue to do so.

We have visited the Maltings on several occasions when we have visited York with our friends. Without fail the staff have become more and more rude. Can I suggest that ALL the staff in this pub par-take in a customer care course. No we will not be spending our hard earned cash in this establishment again! Rude & Ignorant!
