Had a great Ginger Pig steak on a recent visit (317.85 for 2 courses). the restaurant was fairly quiet but great to catch up with the hubby on a much needed night out.

“Good as long as you don't have any problems!”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

Ate there 3 nights, food & service was very good, untli my husband's fish on the 3rd visit wasn't cooked properly in the middle, he told the waiter, without being rude about it but he couldn't eat it, & nothing got done about it, in fact someone else served us after that, it just left us with a sour after-taste.

“Poor meal”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

The food was uninspiring
The veg was new potatoes and a piece of cauliflower
The order was incorrect - chips instead of mashed
Not recommended unless they get their act together

“Good food, better than most pubs”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

It was crowded and so service was a little slow but there was a big festival that weekend in York. The beef and guiness pie was delicious.
