Dining options: After-hours, Breakfast, Reservations
Description: A welcoming and informal bar in a student area, open from breakfast 'til the early hours. A great place to relax, meet new friends and join in activities such as quizzing and retro-gaming. It is also an ideal place to watch the big games on TV whilst eating and drinking from street food influenced menus

Arrived at about 1pm on a Thursday. Fairly quiet which was expected.
Drinks reasonably priced (£4.40 pint of Peroni) for York!

Ordered Grande nachos and BBQ fries at bar (again prices were average). Staff not overtly pleasant. Food took 35 mins to arrive. Food was okay. No cutlery or condiments brought out so had to ask for these. No one checked if our food was okay and it took ages for the table to be cleared.

Would probably pop back for drinks but not food.

Came here to watch a boxing fight over Easter weekend. Was a decent sport bar, nice enough inside and lots of space to find standing spots also. It just didn't seem to make sense to me on such a busy night, when we went downstairs, why the bar there was not serving and so everyone had to venture upstairs to the bar and it was heaving, my boyfriend was gone for about 25 mins before getting served!

Really good for a lively night - busy, usually with quite a young-ish crowd. Good selection of beers. Pool downstairs, sport on the TV and a really good atmosphere, probably the place to go before a night out.

Would come here again.

Went in for late lunch ended up having the late big breakfast was very good. It was quiet at the time and staff were good. Just wish we had a sort of bar this size at my uni when i was student. Looks like a great place. Lots to eat and drink plus love sport and pool tables downstairs.

My partner and i ate here today. The pub itself is very big with upstairs and downstairs bars and seating areas. There is also an area with outdoor seating downstairs.

We ordered food and it took about 45 minutes to arrive. The food was really good however and the burger i had was a contender for best burger ever. My partner had smothered chicken which she said was really nice.

The gents toilets downstairs need a lot of TLC though. The locks on the toilet doors were both broken, there was no toilet roll and the seats looked dirty and wet.

Staff were working hard but they appeared run off their feet. I saw one member of staff briskly walk round a corner and nearly bumped straight into a customer carrying drinks.

If the food had not been so good i would have given this place a 2. With a bit of care and an extra staff member this place would be superb.
