I visited the judges lodging with my partner and another couple. We'd travelled for 2 hours and were there for the day. Our first stop was for a drink at the judges lodging. When we came to leave, I had all chewing gum stuck to my clothes which had obviously been left on the material seat. When I spoke to...

We do recall this unfortunate event while you were enjoying our cellar bar, we really did try to help you clean up, in terms of providing a clean cloth and ice. When things like this happen we absolutely sympathise however they are just sometimes out of our control; we...

We arrived late afternoon, greeted by a warm, friendly smile as we entered the reception. As there is no parking on site, we were told the best place to park and to leave our bags as they would be taken to our room for us. Car parked, we went for a wander around York. On our return, we were given...

The hotel is situated right in the centre of York, just off the river and a 5 min walk from York minster - perfect for first time visitors. The hotel has a really cosy...

This is a prime spot which attracts a good crowd. It was packed on Saturday afternoon with little space to sit. The choice of beers and wines are good. Landlord, Wainwright's and Yorkshire Sparkle are amongst the selection of draught beers. Would like to call in when a little quieter but lovely place to drink.
