Popped in on a cold wet night in York. Staff were friendly, relaxed their no children in bar after 7, so we could eat. Food was usual pub menu and served quickly. No complaints. We visited just before Halloween, so the pub was decorated adding to the great atmosphere and to get us in the mood for our later Ghost Walk.

This is a little pub which we came across. Very good atmosphere. We had some food here and it was basic pub food but was excellent. The service was very good, could not complain about anything.

Myself and my husband stopped off for a drink. We loved the place, staff were polite and friendly, the atmosphere is very relaxed and although we didn't have anything to eat, other people's food looked nice.

Visited on a busy Saturday afternoon. Good menu choices, particularly liked the different sharing platter choices. Opted for the Fish Shop Platter. Tasty :)
