Would highly recommend for really tasty pies - they were delicious! A little off the beaten track but well worth the short walk. So good!

Visited our son at university for the day and booked for Sunday lunch based on great reviews. The food was delicious, excellent quality and nicely presented. Staff were friendly, welcoming and attentive. Between us we had roast chicken, steak pie and gammon and all were...delicious and very reasonably priced. We will definitely return!More

Requiring our tea before the concert at the Barbican, we chose the Rose & Crown, based upon location and its reputation for excellent pies. We were NOT disappointed!!! Having booked a table the evening before, we were given a lovely, large table in the bay...window at the rear looking over the beer garden, with loads of space. The fact that they have an on-site car park was an unexpected bonus. The order of pies and their own GIANT "Rose & Crown" chips, with mushy peas was well presented and served by attentive staff. The pies were as good, if not better than expected and consumed with vigour, all washed down with fine hand pulled real ale. WHAT NOT TO LIKE. Would definitely recommend and will return in the future. Check it out!More

Sometimes a nice simple meal can be perfect, it’s not just the food, although on this occasion it was of a very good quality (two chicken roasts and a steak and Guinness pie) it’s a lot of little things that add up to a very...pleasant experience, nice professional staff, a nice, unstuffy decor and a general feeling that you are welcome are all part of the equation and The Rose and Crown get all these seemingly minor details just right. Been here several times over the years, we live quite local, and although prices have gone up a bit (where haven’t they !!) the standards have never varied. I would recommend this place to anyone who would enjoy a good pub meal that’s a lot better than that. There are letting rooms with the pub (I’ve never stayed, living locally) but I think you would be hard pressed to find a better location than this for central York, with car parking and on several bus routes.More

Staff pleasant, room clean but noisey, needs secondary glazing (room 3) Mattress could be better. Breakfast OK but asking if you wanted more tea or coffee or toast would be nice instead of having to ask for it. Would stay again.

Made a booking 10 months ago. This stay is part of a longer tour of the east of England. Been called today and lectured about not responding/receiving an email. Despite constantly saying I’m away (I do not look or access my emails when I am...away) have gone into my emails to find a demand for more money because I’ve ‘been charged the wrong rate’ it has taken this company 10min to to notice their error and I’m expected to fix it. The staff member on the phone was rude and hostel towards me over their issue. They have had the contract for 10 months and have now decided (3 days before my stay) the contract terms need to be changed. I do not recommend staying here and i recommend people take caution when communicating with staff.More

The lady dealing with orders and food was not very friendly. I took a seat about 530 ,my order was taken about 20 minutes later. My meal didn't arrive by 640 so I had to leave. Ridiculous. Customer service training needed.

Stayed overnight here on a Sunday having spent the afternoon at the Barbican, watching the snooker. Chose to eat here and we both opted for the Sunday Roast, one beef and one chicken. Very nice food, good quality and freshly cooked. We did find the...restaurant and bar area a tad cool as we were sat there and noticed the radiators weren’t on. However our room was warm, clean and functional. Breakfast next morning was excellent, if a little slow at coming out, although that was probably as it was freshly cooked to order. Free parking too is a huge bonus.More

We checked Trip Advisor before our visit to York and found this pub, the reviews were excellent and the menu looked great. We were not disappointed, I had the fish pie and my wife had the steak and Guinness pie. We were full, the food...was superb and the staff couldn’t have been better. If you visit York you must try this pub, the food, wine and service is excellent.More

Being in York for a week, we were only staying across the road from the Rose & Crown, so decided to give it a try based on good TA, reviews. A warm, comfortable & friendly atmosphere engulfed us on arrival. It was early evening so...plenty of table space g there wouldn't be later., we discovered! We chose a table for 2 near the delightful open fire. Ordering drinks at the bar, we perused the menu. The pies come recommended but not feeling we could manage them, having had a sizeable lunch, we opted for sausages & mash & flat iron steak with salad & chips. The food arrived after 20 mins, which indicated it had been freshly prepared. Both meals were superb, both in presentation, generosity & flavour. My steak melted in the mouth, the chips were hot & crisp & altogether moreish! My husband's sausages were meaty & flavourful goo, with creamy mash d tasty cabbage. The friendly waitress who asked if we were enjoying our meals, had time to chat to us & also took a second drinks order, which she brought over. The first course having settled by then, I decided to have a dessert & chose the apple and blackberry crumble with icecream. Once again, a delicious dish with a crispy crumble topping & sweet but not overly so, fruit filling. If it hadn't been for having to wait another hour, we would have stayed for the popular quiz night, which begins at 9pm. But having had a tiring day during touristy things in York, we left feeling replete & very satisfied. Well done Rose & Crown, a true gem of a pub!!!More

We parked near and thought we’d pop in for a drink until our friends arrived. Lovely, cosy pub. Friendly guy behind the bar. Ordered club sandwich and a fish finger sandwich, both were very tasty, good price and had amazing chips. Highly recommended.

We booked this Inn on the advice from a friend who lives in Yorkshire. The rooms are not fancy but the beds/bedding are very comfy. Our room was large and super clean! The pub and dining rooms are very British! They have good drinks specials...throughout the week and the food is very good. They specialize in "pies". We were there for two nights and ate in the Inn both nights. A big shout out to Christopher who couldn't be more accommodating. If I ever am in York, UK again, I'll defiantly book here! You should too.More
