Gill Smith left this review about The Artful Dodger Bar

Enjoyed our visit to this pub last month. Friendly staff who advised on the beers available. Chose Eyes brewery Run the Juice, and Nomadic Elysium which was a fantastic chilli beer. Worth a look in when in the area.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Artful Dodger Bar

More than a touch of Gothic and metal about this three-room pub, with tattooed bar staff that must have matched the job description perfectly! Anyway, there is limited seating in the main bar area at the front, none at all in the central part of the bar, and a bit more in the deliberately gloomy rear room. However, three of the four handpumps were in operation, with Bad Seed Session IPA, Brass Castle Vanaheim (£3.10) and 7.0% Sublime Chaos Breakfast Stout from the Anarchy Brew Co. on offer. Several Bad Seed and Bad Co. keg beers also noted.

The Artful Dodger is a long and thin pub that is split into three sections. At the front of the pub is a seating area and then the bar runs up the left hand side of a thin middle section. At the rear is some seating and room for standing. The bar supports four hand pumps that were all drawing cask ale and there is a standard draught range. The music of choice was heavy metal and the pub was starting to fill up with the Saturday night party crowd during a recent 16:30 visit.

I found the service to be very friendly, but I think I’ll leave this pub next time I’m in town.

This pub used to be called Walkers bar yeas ago it is now on the micklegate circuit but at least it still has real ales on the bar.
Once inside there is one longish room and this is fairly well furnished and there were two real ales on i had a drink of York Terrier this was a fairly decent drink the other beer was Black Sheep bitter.
This pub is best visited during the day as it gets very busy weekend evenings.

Old Boots left this review about The Artful Dodger Bar

A long thin bar with three sections, the seating area at the back has Oliver Twist inspired murals on the wall, otherwise the décor is a bit spartan, there's some seating at the front and a bar counter with vertical drinking in the middle. More traditionally furnished than the modern bar style would suggest but there is music and big screens, the T Bars have small video screens built in so you won't miss that important goal, try, six or putt while getting your round in. There's a couple of banks of hand pulls with local beers from York and Black Sheep, fairly mediocre, certainly not brilliant but OK if a little too warm. The service was friendly and being a late Friday afternoon quiet but that would be the lull before the storm in Micklegate.
