Came here upon arriving in York for a 2 night stay. Enjoyed a hearty great value lunch in quirky surroundings. Great character and wonky floors, tables, stairs. Friendly staff. No ghosts seen on this visit....

We didn't eat here but lots of people were eating and the food looked and smelled lovely. It has many a ghost story and this is when the York ghost walking tours begin. It has rooms for the ghost loving over nighters.

If fine dining & pristine hostelries are your thing then pass on by the Fleece. The tattyness & grubbiness herein actually add to the atmosphere along with the old skeleton at the bar. The sunday roast portion was plentiful, loads of roast beef & can be described as good heart tasty fodder.

Came in for the unique York pub atmosphere. This place did not disappoint. It is full of old charm and interesting historical tidbits. Make sure to check out all of the posters on the wall and get your photo with the full-time resident at the bar. Had excellent live music that performed both outside and in. If your in York,...

Our party of 6 went for the steak pie and it was disgraceful, dried up hard meat and revolting crust. Chips were hard so we all decided it was probably yesterday's food warmed up, much was left on the plates. Not cheap at £10 95 each either. Service was very good but we all left and went to M+S for...

Love coming to this place when we visit york but tonight we went and were disappointed with the food. Lasagne was dried up and stuck to plate. Cottage pie was just warm. Service was however brilliant as always.

The pub has a lot of history and the haunted theme is probably what attracts most visitors. Interesting reading the stories on the wall etc. Food, atmosphere, service was what I will describe as averagely good, not spectacular. Ideal for a pub lunch if you want a bit of history at the same time. A little bit grubby and tired...

I booked the Minster Suite as a Birthday treat for my partner. It's not cheap, but that's the price you pay to stay in the 'most haunted pub in York'. The low-light slightly dilapidated mediaeval look and creepy decor were expected, but the bathroom was state of the art. The room looks over the Shambles, so we were within walking...

As always it has to be the fleece for the best and largest breakfast in York. Delicious local ingredients cooked to perfection. A lovely characteristic pub with warm friendly staff. Having eaten several times here, we are never ever disappointed. A good choice too for live music on a Saturday.
