Our second time visiting, we loved it to begin with but the service let it down majorly today. Our 'waitress' who was more involved with her phone practically threw our food at us and didn't even bother to smile, really put me off as working...More

Good for craft beers and watching sports didn’t have food but it looked good and plentiful. Seems popular with the student population downstairs, toilets in the main bar area would be good but they are downstairs. Well worth a visit

Visited in March on a couple of nights for a drink. Bar was well stocked, craft beers were great and cocktails were fun. Staff were good

Very strange visit, wanted to watch the football got very poor customer service. It seemed they didn’t like a busy bar. Odd bar staff, who got very stressed, when we ordered food. Won’t come back.

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...More

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,...More

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.
