Hid here from the Yorkshire rain for a short period. Big, cavernous place with a pleasant atmosphere. Drinks relatively expensive but found a comfy sofa to rest on until the weather improved. It didn’t improve so we stayed longer....

Incredibly overpriced drinks and absolutely no atmosphere. The venue itself is lovely and has a huge beer garden but it is hard to have an enjoyable night here

Bit of a Tardis inside, lots of tables. We visited on a Saturday afternoon after failing to find an empty table in our usual haunts. They have 2-4-1 cocktails all day every day but to make up for this the cocktails are an eye-watering £8-9...More

Not too pricey, service ok. Beer garden was busy but a mess as glasses not often cleared. Just average.

Drink upstairs, chill in the living room, or sit at the kitchen table downstairs and watch the game. Awesome pub in York with something for everyone. Plenty of screens showing Sky and BT Sport. Great food for sharing, from southern fried chicken, to barbequed ribs and burger n a drink. Downstairs, you'll find living room armchairs, little cubby holes, and a kitchen table for 10 complete with your own screen and a even a sink! Free printing available, with USB a plug sockets everywhere.
