This is really two venues in one. The bottle shop downstairs is absolutely superb with a vast range of beers from the UK and around the world at reasonable(ish) prices, friendly service from the bloke on the till. The bar upstairs is pretty quirky although small and busy. Quite a small beer selection at the bar and itís not cheap although they have some very good stuff on. The food is amazing, we polished off two platters and a cheese board between three of us, but service was painfully slow; I donít think it should take the best part of an hour to put a few bits of meat, cheese and bread on a board and dish it up. Worth a visit, nontheless.

I only used the shop downstairs and after reading the reviews, regret not visiting the bar upstairs! I know iíll be back one day. The chap in the shop was pretty helpful. Great selection, particularly of Yorkshire beers (of course). Only issue for me was the fact that I bought approx 30 bottles and given that itís in a pedestrianised area, it was a massive trek back to the car!

Bezochttijdens en weekendje York, deze bar/slijterij moet je als bierliefhebber toch wel bezoeken. Beneden is een slijterij met een mooie selectie locale enbuitenlandse bieren. Boven vind je een sfeervolle zolder met een piepkleine bar. Ruimte is zeer beperkt maar de doorloop in het publiek is groot even geduld en dan moet je wel een plekke kunnen vinden. Eten is erg goed buer selectie is wel wat beperkter dan beneden maar zitten zeker een paar goede bieren tussen die je in nl niet zult vinden. Prijzen in de bar zijn redelijk, als je wil pinnen geld daarvoor een minimum besteding van vijf euro best lastig aangezien je vooraf moet betalen.

Lovely building above The House of Trembling Madness bottle shop. We didnít realise that you could open your own from purchases downstairs and attempted to get served at the tight bar, not easy and there is a poor range when you get there. It is also difficult to get seated and it is not the type of bar to stand. All in all we were not that impressed.

To be fair it was swelteringly hot and crowded so hard to say it had ambiance, but the crowd was friendly and the place was into Beer. get some fresh air and the score would go up.

This could so easily be one of the best bars in the North of England. The beer selection in the bar is ok, but the fact the shop downstairs covers most bases, and can be taken into the bar, sorts that. The food is (barring the waiting times brought about by the lack of a proper kitchen) spot on. The surroundings are great. What lets it down is the lack of attention to detail. Food availability and service times change on every visit and the cask beer (on my last 3 visits) has been in poor condition. The trick is, cross your fingers, order a Yorkshire Rarebit (if theyíll serve you one) and let someone else drink the first few pints of cask...

Cool place. Very much like a old attic. Attracts a 30 something crowd with by far the best looking female customers for a beer bar anywhere Iíve been in the UK. The food was fantastic. I had a Yorkshire Platter and it was top notch. The beer however was less than stellar. I had a cask in mediocre condition and was the first person to rate ANY beer from Bad Seed, which I tried in a bottle. The cider seems to be the way to go. You can bring beer from the bottle shop down stairs up stairs but given that most bottles are sitting on shelves fairly warm, this wasnít a great prospect. Overall a great place except for the quality of the beer. Iíd come back just for the food.

Best taxidermy ever in a cool, laid-back and lively little attic bar above a well-stocked beer store. Serves food--very sexy ploughman's platters. Think top notch cheese, olives...all your favorites. Check it out.
