My room was above the kitchen and the extractor fans ran late into the evening. The room was small, stuffy and the bed pushed up against the window as there was no room to walk around it. Not really a bathroom as such. More a toilet space with a shower cubicle pushed in the room. Clean. Good staff but a...

Came in for drinks with friends on a Wednesday afternoon and had wonderful service from Georgia who delivered service with a smile! Beautiful beer garden, really good selection of real ales and bar snacks. We'll be back soon!

Visited on Sunday for a roast and would highly recommend! We had a nice welcome from the barman who showed us to the snug area for a table. We ordered the bar and set up a tab which he said could easily be split between the two couples at the end. We had some dietary requests accommodated without fuss or...

We chose this based on location & reviews, it was a real let down after the two previous eateries we had used. There was no atmosphere, we felt squashed in a corner but the main disappointment was the mediocre Sunday lunch. The roast beef was so raw it could've ran about in a field, we complained and had our meal...

Lamb and Lion Inn is located just inside the Petergate at the entrance to York's old, walled city. The first floor contains a small, homey pub where you can get fish and chips for a very reasonable price, along with minted mushy peas. Have a drink from the bar if you wish. Only a few tables in the bar but...

Four of us had Sunday lunch in here and all had no complaints at all. With good service, tasty food and we sat in a nice environment as well. We will certainly be going back, possibly for an evening meal. On a nice day there is also an outdoor seating area, but no good for those with limited mobility from...

We stayed in a lovely room with a partial view of the walls. Room was lovely, quite expensive though, but we like it. The whole pub is very quirky with different little rooms to sit in. Beer garden too. Breakfast was great too. Location is fabulous, right by York Minster, so very central to main things to see and do....

Absolutely brilliant, just got back from a overnight stay here and haven't got a bad thing to say. Food was excellent, room was great and it has a great beer garden. Location is perfect for station and local pubs and shops. We stayed in room 9, right up the top (quite a few flights of stairs) and the view of...
