“Superb”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

Myself and my partner visited the York Tap on Monday 30th September, We had 15 minutes to kill before we got the train from York to Harrogate so we decided to call in for a drink. We are both cask ale fans and noticed that they had a vast selection, including 20 cask and 12 bottled beers. We were made so welcome that we decided to catch the train later and ended up staying in there for over an hour. The staff were excellent. Two very accommodating young men, Rich and Billy were serving on the bar and they really are an asset. They were both friendly, helpful, cheerful and accommodating. The stay was made even more pleasant by the light snack we had, A hearty sandwich and a lovely pork and apple pork pie (with relish) just topped the visit off to a tee. If you are at York Station and fancy a lovely drink, excellent service and a polite manner then you must call in at the York Tap. It is highly recommended and we cannot wait to visit again.

Good atmopshere, good drink, nice snack type food and superb service, All credit to the staff on that day Rich and Billy!!

“Impressive selection of world beers/lagers”
Reviewed September 30, 2013 via mobile

The York Tap is situated within York Railway Station so is well located for thirsty, weary travellers and visitors to the fine, medieval city of York. It boasts a large range and selection of beers. The 'house' choice, Bernard Czech beers I found were of high standard. The location serves it well as it's often found to be a vibrant meeting place/watering hole. As you'd expect however, it ain't cheap!

“Great Beer”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Best beer I had in York. And great value. Superb spot right next to station - luckily I had 30 minutes to wait for the train. Had a great pork pie as well!

“Great beer”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

When I'm in York we will always pop into the Tap. Great atmosphere and a superb selection of hand pulled ales. The bar is a replica of the one designed by Brunel for Bristol in the age of steam. Great fun.

“Wonderfully Renovate”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

As an old pub building this was a treat.
Getting served when the bar was nearly empty took ages.
Having said that it was very pleasant to find a real pub on a railway station.

There is another one on Sheffield station that is very similar, part of the same chain
