Lovely old pub, a York staple. The food portions they do are absolutely ginormous. I saw someone trying to wade enough fish and chips for a family. The prices are not bad either, I just wasn't hungry (and certainly not THAT hungry).
Went for Copper Dragon Golden Pippin, recalling how much I had enjoyed it in Makeney . It wasn't quite as good as I remembered it, but still nice.
People comment on the toilets a lot but the times i have been inside they were fine and even when it was busy they were satisfactory. The food is gorgeous and i only decided to eat when i saw others food arriving and looking alone tempted me. The drinks are cheap and the food is well priced for what you get overall its a good place to be when you have time to spare. I will deffinately be vising this place again soon as i intend to see the live music to which i have heard good reviews.
A night out is a good thing when you spend it with good people in a place like this!
Dark and a little dismal. But that is what they are aiming at, it is supposedly haunted.
Two bars and an eating area upstairs. Very friendly staff and the food is above average but below average prices.
Keep a lookout for the guy at the end of the bar in the rear of the pub. Holding a quarter pint and he has been there ages waiting to be served obviously (he is a skeleton).
I loved the atmosphere
Feels a bit grubby but does have character! Friendly staff and good acoustic band playing and whilst we didn’t eat the food looked good and there wasn’t much leftovers going back to the kitchen from the generous portions!

Characterful pub which makes great play on supposedly being haunted. There's a bar as you enter the pub which is quite cramped and another bar and room towards the rear of the pub which is a bit more comfortable and spacious. A few tables are provided outside at the back of the pub for those sunny days or even for those rainy days for today's much maligned smokers. Black Sheep was one of the beers on draught, a perennial favourite of mine, and it was well kept. I suppose our perceptions of a pub change when we view it as being hundreds of years old as this one is and we tend to judge it accordingly, so in that respect it's an interesting pub to visit, but to be honest it had a slightly grubby feel and I wouldn't especially go out of my way to visit it again.
I've given it 3 stars but it probably deserves 4. As a local I find this is more popular with tourists which is why I sometimes find it a little busy and cramped, and dare I say the prices are a little higher because of the tourists too. That's the only reason I have given it 3 instead of 4.
However that being said the food is deliciously and the portions generous. I enjoyed a lovely lunch with a friend recently. I don't know about ghosts, but it has plenty of character and is bang in the city centre which makes it a great stopping of point to refuel whilst shopping!
If you're a history buff then this is the pub for you! We visited it on a trip we loved it so much we went twice.
The pub really gives you a feel of what pubs where like in medieval times with it's uneven floors it's very true to medieval roots from the decoration to the lighting. The walls are filled with snippets of it's history.
The food is absolutely incredible and you get really good portions. As a pub it's really small and is a tight squeeze on busy nights.
Didn't witness any hauntings even so, I wouldn't stay there overnight in the guest rooms which look fabulous according to it's website.
Very popular with tourists due to its central location and alleged ghost-infestation. Serves a modest range of real ales. Not a bad place to drink mid-week, but not such a nice atmosphere on Friday/Saturday night when it has bouncers on the door. I seem to remember that it has a pleasant beer garden at the back.
Very traditional English pub, two bar, we went through to the one at the back, passing many framed newspaper cuttings about the ghost stories centred around York and the pub itself. Staff friendly, but the building could do with some TLC, lots of textured walls in need of a lick of paint. very busy, so obviously popular though. also runs ghost evenings, and offers accommodation
Said to be the oldest Inn in York (1503) it also the most haunted and has been on TV’s Most Haunted show.
Great food. I took an American who said the Clam Chowder was better than home.
Has a coutyard for eating in and a smoking area.
Has rooms to stay in too. The rooms are all styled with medieval furniture and one was a secret room discovered about 7 or 8 years ago. Another room has a resident ghost and one has a 4 poster and a jacuzzi. Not expensive either.
Very reasonable prices for the food. Try the giant Yorkshire puddings. Good beer.
