We were a party of 7 and from the moment we arrived we had a wonderful experience. The food and service at the table was amazing. Everyone in the party felt it was the best meal we have ever had in a country pub. Will be returning regularly.

This is a wee gem of a place. The food is delicious, the wine and local ales were great, and the service was brilliant. We ate here twice with our family on a week's holiday in York. The aged steak, stroganoff and steak pies were delicious and the sticky toffee puddings were fabulous too. Great traditional food!!!

Not sure where Fio 5050 had been eating, but the menu here has absolutely everything you could wish for.

Fabulous staff, excellent... More

This lovely little pub restaurant is known for its great steaks. The steaks are excellent but the chef really has to think again about his offer for those who'd rather have something else. I didn't fancy the salmon main (why is it always salmon?) and plumped for a crispy duck starter which was too tired and chewy for my liking.... More

This is a really fantastic pub, food good and staff very warm and friendly. Made to feel very welcome. We had drinks here a number of nights, next to a roaring log fire. We ate great fish and chips and all the meals coming from the kitchen looked lovely. We would definitely return-it was well patronised.

Excellent food with large portions in an old pub that's been tastefully modernised without losing its character. Very friendy and almost perfect service, all at very reasonable prices. Popular even on a cold Monday evening in February.
