When I booked this Bed and Breakfast I really wasn't sure I'd done the right thing. We usually stay in hotels and I had images of the old B&B's from when I was younger...dives!

I couldn't have been more wrong. We thought we would be staying above a pub, but we were in an adjacent property which had been refurbished to the highest standard. Just lovely.

For the evening we had a meal in the pub itself and couldn't fault the service or the food.

Overall our stay was perfect, we just wish we'd booked there for the following night too!

We had the good fortune to enjoy an outstanding meal at Ye Old Sun Inn and spend the night in the Walnut Lodge just adjacent. The welcome, food and service at the pub was simply outstanding and the accommodation in the Walnut Lodge was excellent. Everything was rounded off nicely by possibly one of the best breakfasts we have ever had. If we are ever in the vicinity again we are going back.

We spent one night at the Walnut Lodge. The room was well appointed clean and comfortable. The furnishings were very good with interesting art work.
We ate at Ye Old Sun Inn. The welcome was warm and the service was excellent.
We had a lovely meal which was good quality and the choice was varied with a specials board for all courses. The beer was very palatable.
The breakfast was served in the bar, it was varied and included all we wanted and more!
We would highly recommend this pub for a meal and/or overnight stay.
The owners are welcoming attentive and do all they can to make a visit to Ye Old Sun Inn an experience that is memorable for all the right reasons. We hope to be back.

Lovely pub in a lovely small village not far from York with handy up to date clean accommodation (Walnut Lodge) en suite with all amenities, adjacent to the pub, which is probably nicer than actually staying in the pub. Would be great for a family get together or a group to stay over in the lodge.
Evening dinner (with extensive menu) in the pub restaurant was as enjoyable as any restaurant we have visited. The staff were extremely attentive, the pigeon starter was probably the best we have tasted and the assiette of desserts memorable.
Breakfast next morning was in the pub bar which included everything you could want. The bar area and restaurant was immaculate. Great B&B, we had a lovely time, the owners were great and we hope to be back very soon.

We had a nostalgic trip to Ye Old Sun Inn- probably 40 years since we were last there. Stayed one night in Walnut Lodge which was very well appointed - with an extremely comfortable bed and smart ensuite. Everything you'd expect in a 4 star hotel room only better as it only has a few rooms. The treat was the food in the restaurant - for a village pub just outside York , I would recommend this very highly- beautifully cooked food and great choice - my steamed bream was heavenly. Beats some of the restaurants that promote fine dining any day
Best bit was the two front bars were just as we remember them.
Definitely we'll go again next time we can visit York.
