A nice, and what seems like an almost untouched pub with a dark history. The skeleton is a nice touch as is the skull in a box...

Been to York 3 times now with my bf and visited The Golden Fleece each time.
It's low lighting gives it a warm and atmospheric glow...giving it it's charming character.
Perfect size if you ask me and never had any problems getting a table for food or just beer.
The menu offers excellent choices.... Vegetarian and vegan options available! I had vegan curry and it was delicious! I strongly recommend you visit this pub... It's a must.

This pub is very small inside considering the number of visitors, obviously that can't be helped but its a shame as we tried twice to buy a drink there but it was so crowded that we gave up and went somewhere else (it was a very cold weekend in January, not school hols). It holds a lot of history and is apparently haunted so it's understandable why it's so busy, if we go in future we will try to get there early as it opens to make sure we can get a table.

Loved the building and the sloping, uneven floors. The food was good but not great. Don't make the American mistake of asking for a doggy bag. I did not realize this was not usually done and actually had to sign a release. A local at the bar was giving me looks and I felt like an idiot. If not for this it would have been an enjoyable meal.
