“Handy for early breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2014

We visited there several times while staying in York a few days ago. Much cheaper than the nearby hotels for breakfast.

We also had an evening meal as the night we stayed in York had torrential rain, thunder and lightning so we didn;t want to go into town and get soaked. Very good value and most main meals include a drink.

All the staff we saw were friendly and polite and we will return again next time we are in York

“4 day trip with husband”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2014 via mobile

This place is attached to the central hotel on piccadilly in York. The atmosphere was great, food excellent we cleared our plates something we've never done before. Always found somewhere to sit weather it was 4 of us or 2 of us.

Glad it is a good thing: Clean plates, means we are doing something right...
It is our aim to be flexible from a table of two through to a table of 20.

“Great for breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

I stayed in the Travelodge and opted for the Wetherspoons as the hotel doesn't offer breakfast. Excellent Eggs Benedict at a great price. Great coffee as well.

“By Wetherspoon standards this is always a let down.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

I have been to this pub a number of times, each time thinking it must have got better than the last time, however sadly it never does.

My last visit in Dec '13 will be my last ever, myself and my partner went in for a quick lunch waiting to check in to the hotel across the road. She wanted a jacket potato and I wanted a chicken burger. They had ran out of both Jacket Potato's and chicken burgers! Unbelievable lack of organisation and ordering and is totally inexcusable especially as every time I go in their they have something out of stock.
