We called in for a quick drink on our way back to our hotel, having quite a liking for Marstons ales. Perhaps we should have paid more attention to the "5 Shots for £10" end-of-holiday-season signs bedecking the exterior. The pub was fine for drunken...More

Good selection of beers and Ales ect. Very polite helpfull staff. Nice little beer garden out the back. Live music all week, jam nights, djs, comedians, something for everyone. Best thing is one of the Cheapest Pub's I found within the city walls in York.

This pub was next to the hotel we stayed at and went in for a swift drink one afternoon. Pleasant surroundings and swift service. Worth a visit if passing by.

Okay pub. Good cheap beer. Saturday night was lively with a local crowd. Could do with a bit of a revamp. Toilets a bit grim.

What a find. I went randomly on a Tuesday night. Well. Great atmosphere. Great service. But it doesn't stop there. Not only is the lager just as cheap if not cheaper than any Wetherspoons, but I also had some of the best live musicians I've...More

The Spread Eagle is a fantastic, traditional style pub, situated in the centre of York. With regular live music from local bands and DJ's we have established ourselves as part of the live music scene in York. We serve a full selection of draught beers, wine and spirits for your enjoyment along with a lovely range of soft drinks for those non-drinkers and drivers. Situated at the back, there is a lovely beer garden where customers can have a refreshing drink in the summer months and simply relax. The Spread Eagle is the perfect place for a busy night out with live entertainment every week.
