“Loved it!”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

I'd read about this place before visiting York in May and knew we had to paya visit. Unfortunately didn't get a chance to eat here but had a great pint (Hubby had the Expresso ale!) and were envious fo some fo the fayre we saw people tucking into. Loved the atmosphere and the concept - well worth the visit.

“Don't you dare not going there.”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Definitely, it is the most funny pub I've ever been. The building, signs, tables, chairs.. Everything brings you back a thousand of years. The meals and drinks are great. You might have to fight with someone for a table on busy times. But be aware of ghosts!

“Just a fab place”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

Great beer, great welcome and, well, history. Such a dingy, old, worn place but just brilliant. The shop is also a beer lovers oasis, I could have spent a fortune...
