Small bottle shop fronting a very small bar. Pretty modest selection of bottles, some of which were quite warm under teh spotlights. The chap who served me was pleasant enough but had an air of the long suffering and I understood why. Stuck my head round the bar to find precisely zero beers available due to cellar problems. This wasn’t open on Sunday or Monday in October. Needs work!
Small pub in the heart of York. There is a bottle shop at the front, with a decent selection of local beers, not just from the brewery. only a couple of their own beers on when i went. ok but not a stand out place
Review Sept ’16 reduced to 58. There seems to be no atmosphere in here now, empty whilst other pubs are full, disappointing range of just 4 beers on tap on our visit. Review Sep ’14, 68. This is a pleasant conversion of a shop, there is plenty of seating and space for all. There is a stripped back feel and wobbly chairs, but this is part of the charm. A reasonable range of beers to be had, served pretty well. A pleasant place to visit.
Visited on 25th June 2016. A long, narrow pub in the middle of York. The pub has a bottle shop in front which has a decent array of bottles from York Brewery plus other Yorkshire brewers.
Inside the pub, there’s a couple of rooms, it’s dark but is a nice little pub. 6 well kept beers from York on tap. Prices decent. Service was very friendly.
I liked this pub. There’s better in York but it’s still decent enough.
In the middle of the atmospheric Stonegate, the small front of this shop unit is given over to the bottle shop selling the various York Brewery regular brews. Beyond here is a larger room with a bar along its right side. Here you’ll find some of the same York brews if you’d rather sample them there and then alongside a few guests.

Cosy little pub, or more like a shop with a tasting room in the back, since it´s the shop one sees from the street. Friendly and helpfull staff, beers in good condition and we had some great sandwiches for lunch.
A fairly basic bar squeezed in behind York Brewery’s beer shop.
The Yorkshire Terrier has ten hand pumps and about four keg beers. When we were there there were three of York’s own beers (Guzzler, Terrier and Ghost) and three guests (two from Titanic and one from Acorn).
There was rugby on the big screen television and the tables were sticky, making it seem less homely than it could do, though it’s not for want of trying. There’s a bare brick chimney breast, William Morris wallpaper and a nicely decorated stainless steel ventilation pipe (it’s painted with blackboard paint and promotes the characteristics of various whiskies, mainly single malts). The small conservatory is really just a covered over back yard but the large mirror on the far wall makes it seem bigger.
The food looked OK but fairly unimaginative.

Decent, small pub on one of the main tourist streets in York. I think it’s owned by the local York brewery so no surprises the majority of the beers are from York brewery’s output (no bad thing). The only odd thing is this place seems to have been very very quiet on the 3/4 times I’ve been in, not sure why apart from the fact there’s no shortage of pubs in York.
