A pleasant, comfortable early Edwardian pub with twelve hand pumps.
Not all the hand pumps were on when we visited but the range of cask ales was reasonable, with some treats like Thornbridge Jaipur and Moor Amoor on offer. There are also ten keg taps and the usual Nicholsonís bottle list and food menu.
Itís a spacious, lounge style open plan pub, built in red brick in 1904. This style of pub is quite common elsewhere but less so in York where the mediaeval street plan still dominates.
