Positive Reviews

Comfort with character

Not only are the rooms here spacious and comfortable, but they are crammed absolutely full of character. Exposed beams, quirky décor and pictures hanging from the ceiling are all part of the charm at this family-run property. The theme continues in the pub's downstairs area, where Tom, the inn's resident cat, meets, greets and entertains delighted guests.

Close to York centre, great transport links

The location here offered guests great access to the sites of historic York and to the nearby university. While many found that the city itself was just a 30 minute walk away, others were pleased to find that the pub is situated on a major road that features great bus links.

Great staff, fantastic menu

The staff at this inn are incredibly helpful and friendly, even offering to wrap up breakfasts for those pressed for time in the morning. On the food front, this inn has been commended for serving up outstanding meals in very generous portions. Vegetarians in particular were very pleased with the offerings here.

Negative Reviews

Rushed service

While the service at the bar and the restaurant is good, it's almost too efficient for some, who note that staff are overly hasty in their rush to clear glasses and plates from the table.

Noise from below

Guests in certain rooms - especially those located just above the kitchen - report being disturbed by the property's extractor fan during the late evenings and through to the early hours of the morning.

Passing cars also a disturbance

The pub is located on a main road and while guests are grateful for the direct access into the city centre, many felt that some soundproofing is needed here to help insulate rooms against the noise of passing cars.
