Went in on Saturday, asked a lady behind the bar about whether they would be showing a football game and was grunted at that they wouldn’t before being asked to move. We stayed anyway, although I wish we hadn’t and we eventually decided to leave...More

Hid here from the Yorkshire rain for a short period. Big, cavernous place with a pleasant atmosphere. Drinks relatively expensive but found a comfy sofa to rest on until the weather improved. It didn’t improve so we stayed longer....

Incredibly overpriced drinks and absolutely no atmosphere. The venue itself is lovely and has a huge beer garden but it is hard to have an enjoyable night here

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.
