A timber framed building with hundreds of years of history is home to a warm and friendly welcome at this city centre pub.

Visited this pub whilst having a few days away. Lovely atmosphere with character, delicious food and not over priced beer, what more could you ask for? All staff very friendly and helpful. The pub was clean and in an ideal location. Highly recommend!!!

Extremely old pub, very quirky and serves real ale. Fires are always lit and plenty of small rooms to sit in. Would recommend a visit

The Falcon is a historic pub and exactly what a pub should be. No music, no fizzy lager and no tv. The building is beautiful - medievel with timber, stone and lath & plaster. It is a Samuel Smith pub so only sells Samuel Smith ales and cider on pump. Don't come in here if you want a Bud or... More

Amazing restored buidling with a rich history. No TV or music so a proper atmosphere. Good ales from Samuel Smiths. Shame there is not a pub like this near my home!

Beautiful old building. Big beer selection with no major brands. No televisions, just people enjoying a drink and conversation. I could imagine the same scenario in there 100 years ago. Great spot and much cheaper than other pubs in the area.
