Called in here last month and chose Isaac Poad A Knight's Ale from the cask selection available.

Charmless sort of city centre chain pub full of tourists and loud sweary twenty somethings. Reminds me of those generic pubs that you get everywhere in the middle of London. stinks of food as well and pint of Dishwater IPA set me back £4.15 in here.

A Taylor walker chain pub and one of two in the center of York, Personally i prefer the other. This is a busy city center pub that gets very busy on evenings and weekends especially if there is a big sporting event.

since Greene King acquired spirit pub company (and thus Taylor walker branded pubs) the Cask ale selection has worsened. Greene King IPA now sits permanently on the bar and a selection of guest ales hand picked by the brewery that are not the best. on my visit three were not in use leaving only Greene king IPA Taylor walkers house golden ale or london glory, non of which really appealed that much to me, I opted for a Guinness at a very expensive £3.75

A bit of a touristy place that can get over crowded and thus suffer in their drinks offerings and service, some of the measures they were giving out were scandalous. An ok pub to visit on a trip to York but usually avoided by locals.
