Lovely weekend away, wanted to try some local pubs, this is one to go to.. Food was great, live music was fantastic, only down side was no real spirt selections other than the bog Standard spirts! It does get busy so would recommend reserving a table if u would like to eat.

Visited here between Christmas and new year on a family recommendation. On entering the pub we walked down a long corridor to the back and the smell of the toilet was very whiffy as we went past. We had to sit upstairs for our meal which again was tired and uninvitng. The menu was plentiful but i think they would...

Having had trouble finding food or service In two other 'traditional' pubs in York we tried the Golden Fleece and we're lucky (!) to get a seat at last. The low lighting being part of the charm we were fairly happy to find somewhere cosy, warm and adequately staffed. Overall the staff were indifferent, the tables dirty, the service slow...

Great little pub, very atmospheric, sadly let down by poor food. Over cooked and seemingly "old" food, especially the chips which were hard and barely edible and meat over cooked badly. Would recommend for a drink and to look at the pub, but not the food

After struggling to read the menu due to the poor table lighting, which we have not had a problem with on our earlier visits, we ordered some meals. Three of us ordered chips which...

Visited whilst on weekend break. Very cosy, very old and full of character. Very busy at the time of our visit. Excellent location right in the centre of the city. Reasonable bar prices and will visit again when in York.

We love this pub, great ales and selection of spirits (not only the drinkable types) Generous food portions, good home cooked food. Nearby The Shambles for a lovely shopping experience. York Mindter is a must visit too, extremely beautiful.
