As ever one of the most friendly and welcoming places in York. Very warm and a good atmosphere. A great selection of drinks on offer. Love it here.

If you like rude staff, overpriced drinks and sitting in a mess then this is the place for you. If not, I wouldn’t bother. There’s much better places in this fine city

Just bad service. Bar wasn’t busy, staff not acknowledging customers. Stood waiting to be served for five minutes when only one other at the bar

Not the coziest spot to get a beer but as far as train station or airport beers go its top. Excellent cask selection, fast service, friendly, helpful staff. I'd even get to the station a bit early just to have a pint.

As a 60’s + man I’ve drunk enough pints to know what I like, and I’ve been in enough pubs to recognise the good from the not so good, or even the good from the great. This place is great and I’ve been visiting whenever I’ve travelled through York station for the past 15 years or so.
The enjoyment of my most recent visit was significantly raised by the EXCELLENT service by Max, the barman from Australia. He was supremely professional, attentive, friendly and absolutely everything required of a bar man (person) in an establishment like this.
If I was in the hospitality business Max is exactly the calibre of professional I would want running my bar and, within reason, I would pay him whatever he asked because I would be confident that he would drive repeat business.
Either the Tap will keep him or another landlord will!
Let the challenge begin and good luck fella, you deserve it.

Arranged to meet friends here as we were arriving by bus and train. Miserable staff, flat beer, lots of hand pull run out. Don’t bother

Visited yesterday . Great selection of beers and despite it being very busy the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. I can only surmise that previous poor reviews were more of a reflection of the people posting

I genuinely feel bad writing this as I’ve loved the other Tapped venues I’ve visited, but judging by the previous Tripadvisor posts, this is clearly a big ongoing problem at Tapped York: The Staff
So rude and uninterested in customers, it feels like you’re a chore that they have to deal with. Surly expressions and passive aggressive comments that boarder on the sarcastic at times. As mentioned by other reviewers, if you hate dealing with people so much, don’t work in hospitality.
As the industry battles on post-Covid into the upcoming energy crisis, bar staff have an obligation to their employers to protect their venues (and their own jobs!) by offering the best service possible in the hope of repeat custom. Judging by the recent experiences noted on Tripadvisor, these lot need replacing for the sake of Tapped York’s future.

I made a point of visiting this pub after drinking here on many rail trips pre Covid, looking forward to my first visit in two years. The bearded, glass wearing barman acted like he couldn’t be bothered to serve me. Telling me what flavoured crisps he had was like I’d asked him to do a chore. I’d bigged this place up as a great place to visit, but based on this visit I won’t be back. There are plenty of more welcoming places to take our business in York. Shame, a smile costs nothing.
