Joe sent a review in, well, more of a comment really, saying that this is NOT a gay freindly pub. Confused? So was I read on. Alex said it was a nice place at lunch time. After Little John responded to disappointed lesbian telling us she and her mates got turfed out before they got a drink.
Tim and Judy loved sitting next to the fire with a pint! Also, it is one of the most haunted York pubs!
Linda Jones was not best pleased when they closed the kitchen before deserts could be ordered. However, Chris Britten liked this lovely historic pub on Goodramgate.
Late night venue in the middle of the city centre with no entry fee.
One of the, if not the most famous pubs in the city. If you walk along Stonegate you will not be able to miss the sign that runs right across the middle. Jon Parker likes the food, ale and atmosphere here.
This is part of a large, well known chain of "gasto" pubs. Usually one would expect good food and service. That is not what happened for Willum.
This is one of the classic old public houses in the city. Small rooms full most of the time good beer with pleasant staff and punters alike. Tina Williamson says she thinks it is York's finest.
Dawn Brown went in on a weekend and was most impressed at a good old pub with a modern warm welcome.
Awarded Pub of the Season from CAMRA York!
Heather Keith told us how much she liked this pub. She will be sure to return when she is back in the city.
Kevin Ireson tells us about the most famous of the many pub crawls in York.
Ricky sent us in what he thought of this Micklegate pub. Good real ale is available.
Located just outside Bootham Bar. It is a good place to meet up and start a good night out in York.
Patricia Evans sent in some stuff about what having a drink in the Slipper is like.
2 visitors to our fair city sent us in this look at an Irish Theme pub. Thanks, if you visit any other places when you come back let us know.

A personal review by Gary Hingley.
Small real ale pub with loads of beer on tap. They do a good beer festival from time to time, if you can get in when there are like 20 barrels of beer in the front room. Shaun the landlord nice guy. Says hello even if you haven't been in for 2 years.
Good ale music and Sunday Lunch here. Unfortuanatly bulldozed to the ground in early 2011.
