“Great Food & Rock n Roll bar..”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

We stumbled across this bar by accident walking along the historic walls of York. From the outside it was quite un assuming but inside it was wall to wall rock n roll photography with great music playing (we spent 20 minutes just walking around looking at the walls)! I personally didn't eat but the Mrs and kids all ordered something and the food looked great (for what it was - burger chips/paninis etc) and all plates were cleared. The beer garden was apparently under construction but the chap behind the bar said it would be ready for next time we visited. Thoroughly enjoyed an hour rest, water and feed here and would really really recommend it. Brilliant.

“Best lunch in York”
Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

Went to York for the bank holiday weekend and stumbled upon this bar just after arriving. The bar man was very friendly and we ordered the lamb pittas for lunch and a pint of Amstel. The food here was the best we had in York. The lamb was fresh roast lamb and a large portion.it was really different and tasty. I would definitely recommend. In fact we went to a rather expensive restaurant on the Sunday night in York and I didn't enjoy my meal half as much. Well done to the Chef and thank you for a lovely experience with good music and interesting decor.

Personally I really liked it, yorks a nice place but there really is no alternative indie or even rocky places to go at all, compared to leeds or manchester ect, musically theres no diversity what so ever over here it's all typical Yates bars that are the same thought the country or simlar style bars and clubs so this place was a breathe of fresh air just to have the choice of a change if nothing else, good prices different music friendly people and staff and always a comfortable amount of people in
