Yesterday we were in York watching the UK snooker championships. We needed to eat between the afternoon and evening sessions. Where better than here? It was heaving but we still managed to get a table, a clean table more to the point. We ordered 2 mixed grills with a free drink, very reasonable. We expected a long wait of about... More

This Wetherspoons pub delivers a great experience when busy! lots of atmosphere created by students and visitors alike. You may even see a few well known people!! Good food and quality drinks with friendly service. Parking difficult!

Called for a quick snack on way back to my room in the travel lodge. It was very busy and the tables needed a good clean but I was served very quickly and the food and drink were just what to expect from a weatherspoons. Would definitely return and did the next day

My wife and I recently visited York and stayed at the Travelodge on Piccadilly. Like most Travelodges it does not have its own restaurant but right next door is The Postern Gate (a Weatherspoon bar and restaurant). We visited this Pub on three occasions (twice for breakfast and once for an Evening meal). We have used Weatherspoons a number of... More

Stopped in for our evening meal. Lovely food and a very good menu to choose from. The food was served very quickly and was piping hot. Staff was very pleasant and took time to deal with questions from customers. Very clean and no sign of dirty tables waiting to be cleared.

As always you always get good food at great prices at a Weatherspoons pub, so we searched for one in York where we were staying for the weekend. It was a bit difficult to find as just a bit away from the main shopping area, but we were not disappointed with the food or prices. It was very busy and... More

Awful. Spoke to the manager about the fact that there are more beers off than available. He told me there are issues with staff and staffing shortages. He said he would fix it but 1 hour later and there is no change. I ordered a steak and kidney pudding but was very disappointed, it was more like a crusty pie... More
