hondo . left this review about Golden Ball
Proper old style pub recently taken into community ownership. The pub has 4 rooms and was serving 6 real ales. The pub has a dartboard and a bar billiards table.

ROB Camra left this review about Golden Ball
Multi roomed locals local with a few tourists in the know scattered around. There's a fine glazed brick exterior and the interior dates to 1929 when it was refurbished by John Smiths in the days when they did that sort of thing. The pub is on CAMRA's Real Heritage Pub List and in the GBG2013. There are 4 rooms all with different character. The beer is John Smiths Cask, Bombardier, Everards Tiger, Deuchars and usually a couple of guests. It's all quietly comfortable and the locals are friendly. We often call in for one when in this part of York. Be warned though, it doesn't open until 5 during the week.

Real Ale Ray left this review about Golden Ball
I must have called at a bad time, but the landlady wasn't very friendly and locals not much better. Enjoyed Salamander Pale Ale and Leeds Golden Best. Beer very good, company not - won't return.
