We called for a drink here as we have done over many years, but oh what a change. We sat outside with our dogs. It is not as clean and tidy outside as it used to be. Shabby and definitely no care in the place. My husband came out with our drinks. Member of staff could not have cared less,...

We stopped in York for a few hours to break our journey. After visiting the usual sights we had a walk around the museum gardens and decided to stop somewhere for a drink and food. Coming out the gardens we saw a lovely Tudor style pub and had a lovely welcome and great food and service. It was a really...

After an unsuccessful visit to the city centre thought we would stop for one more at this pub on the way back to B and B. What a delight. A nice real ale served with a smile and a great conversation with the barmaid. Place was clean and welcoming. Will be going back to try some more of the ales.

We had a great lunch here. It is close to the river next to the museum gardens. Good food and friendly service. Decent beers too. It's slightly away from the main visitor area of York but well worth a visit.

Stopped for a drink after a walk around York and Musuem gardens. Had a drink and some nibbles. Food menu looked good, however we didnt eat. Bar was nice, plenty of space and seating. Very quiet for a Friday evening, so lacking a bit of atmosphere.

My wife and I called in for a quick "drink and snack"..had the drink but the strong smell of body odour apparently eminating from the chap behind the bar totally put us off ordering any food, hence the shorter than planned visit. Shame as the place itself would be a cracking stop off point for said "drink and snack" if...

We have just returned home from a 3 night stay in York where we stayed at the Bay Horse. For what we paid for this accommodation in York, we have to give it a deserved 5 stars. The Landlord and Landlady were very friendly and obliging... the acommodation doesn't generally come with parking but they let us park our car...

Had a lovely visit here after Christmas shopping in York. Food was reasonable well cooked and very tasty. Would recommend the food and the hospitality. There was plenty of space to sit inside and not for summer.
