“Location and selection make this a great tavern stop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014

Right between the train platform and the Royal York Hotel, this became out go-to stop for a pint or two in the evening. People-watching was great, and we were impressed by the breadth of beers and ales that were on tap. Definitely a place to drop by when you're in York.

“Excellent range”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

I struggle coming here as there are just too many beers to choose from! A superb range of real ale, mostly from smaller brewers, and helpful staff who will always make an excellent recommendation.

“Excellent range of beers in an interesting setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014

So many beers and ciders on offer that several visits were needed to do justice to the York Tap which is situated at York railway station. Many of the real ales are from smaller local brewers and that is to be commended

“Excellent Bar, shame about the ladies loos”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

Firstly want to say what a great bar and an excellent choice of beers, but the ladies toilets were an absolute disgrace, no loo roll so toilets were full of the blue paper hand towels and would not flush, no soap to wash your hands and paper towels really overflowing from the bins. Would visit again if they sort the loos out.

“Third world latrine”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014 via mobile

Picked up my wife from the station and popped in for a drink.
I immediately picked up the smell of urine and then had to use the gents toilet. It was literally swilling with the proverbial.
A real shame as it has the potential to be a great local.

Hello

Firstly i would like to apologise for the poor cleanliness of the toilets when you visited the York Tap.
We have since your visit, replaced the urinals and refurbished the toilets to try and combat the problem. As you can see from other reviews toilets have been an issue in the past and though we have changed the facilities and layout on 3 occasions, poor drainage meant that the problem still occured. Since we have changed the urinals themselves, plumbed in a whole new system internally with East Coast sorting the plumbing externally we believe we have stopped the problem.

I hope that if you decide to return to York Tap at any stage you will find both the bar and toilets at a state of cleanliness that is more satisfactory.

Apologies again and we look forward to you re-visiting.

Regards

Rich Cockram
