A busy and fairly small pub with a decent range of beers on, including some unusual ones for this part of the country. Not far from the train station.

We have visited this great pub a few times now, it is always busy and buzzing, seating being at a premium. There is generally a good range of beers to be had. There is a pleasant outdoor patio to the rear. What it can suffer from is the dreaded Stag and Hen parties at weekends, but there is usually a doorman trying to stop this. A certain must visit on any trip to York even if it has now been overtaken by the York Tap.

Convenient location, just across the bridge from old town. Fun selection of pumps. Warm interior with lovely old tile floor and wide variety of seating. Definitely worth a go.

Nice, modern bar that somehow looks traditional and homely even so. Has a small outdoor area, as well as two rooms inside. A good choice of beers, and friendly service. Blessedly free of music. Really had a good vibe, clearly a place people came to to talk. Owners seem to have a weird hangup with swearing, as there are signs against swearing all over.

Traditional boozer and local institution located but short walk from the train station on your way to town. They have an ever changing selection of cask and keg lines. On our visit we enjoyed some Thornbridge & Blackjack. The bottle selection ain’t bad either with a mix of Belgian and strong UK brews (a couple of Impy stouts, Lees Harvest etc). Food was pretty cheap and in very generous portion size. One of the best pubs in York.

Visited quite a few times over the past 2 decades or so.
Smallish boozer between the railway station and the centre of town, just off the Ouse.
Good ever changing cask range of half a dozen or so sticks.
Food portions here are legendary!
Good service, good vibes.

Visited on 22/1-2013 on The Jorvik Trail.
First stop on day 2 on our lovely Jorvik Trail. Great pub, close to the river and the citywall. Very cosy place with some nice deco, lots of old metal signs of all kind, and even a toilet is used as deco, or an ekstra chair, perhaps :-)
Friendly staff, beers in good condition and it seems a pub for the locals. For sure worth a re-visit :-)
