This place was right next to our hotel and was quiet (the night we were there) and unpretentious. Drinks were cheap and service was great!

No frills but good beer at reasonable prices with a beer garden / smoking area that made it possible for my partner and I to sit together rather than one of us being the lonely figure on the doorstep

Had an excellent night celebrating my son's birthday. Great, friendly staff and lovely atmosphere. Manages a mix between proper local pub and music venue really well. Brilliant to see an authentic music pub in York

Visited here on Saturday evening for a pint with family, and it was certainly interesting in the Spread Eagle. The beer was good and certainly good value at less than £10 for 3 pints, but the clientele were a mixture of students and locals who were all very drunk! Shame really as the beer was good.
