We really enjoyed the beer and pizza at this pub. If you like pepperoni and jalapeño combinations, they have one called Diablo (or something close to that) and it is delicious. We couldn't stay for quiz night, but it looked as though it was drawing...More

Obviously quite a quiet time to visit and there was no blaring music! Very helpful barman for directions to the station. A huge range of ales available. Useful if slightly tacky outside rear seating area. Indoors it was smart and clean

I didn't visit all the pubs in York but of those I did this was the best for choice of cask and keg. Friendly, knowledgeable service. Didn't try the food. A good atmosphere.

Lots of great pubs in York, but despite its extensive selection of draught ales and ciders, I don't regard this as one of them. Some excellent beers, and the service is friendly enough, but the pub itself is a bit of a dump. There was...More

This is generally a decent pub with a good range of beers, but the quiz night (Thursday) is absolutely dreadful and I would refuse to return even if paid. The evening resembles a rugby club disco (music so loud you must shout to hear yourself...More

Unrivalled selection of beers and cider, and a very good menu consisting of great freshly made burgers, chilli, nachos and fresh pizzas made in a wood-fired pizza oven. I highly recommend the burgers in particular.
