This place has everything you need when watching the big games. Beer, nice cocktails, plenty of space with lots of tv screens, pool tables etc and all at a reasonable price. The manager on duty was great and even adjusted cocktails to suit our tastes....More

We came here with friends to watch the football. The staff were great and one of a few places to show BT sport. We didn't eat but the food looked and smelt amazing. Cocktails were great and would go back!

Went to watch live sport there. Huge screen, comfy seats and 2 pitchers of cocktails for £14! Student venue but not swarming. Excellent and would go again.

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.
