A nice Sam smiths pub in the shadow of the minster. there are Three main rooms to this pub making this the biggest of the three city center Sam Smith pubs with the main bar, the lounge and the front snug. each room has access to the bar with there being a bar in the snug room but these are only dummies, all beer is sold from the main bar but workers will take your order from this bar. The usual Sam Smiths range at usual prices and this is the only city center sams selling their light mild and a very wallet friendly £1.34. the old brewery bitter is there only cask ale at £1.80.
A very nice place to sit and have a drink in the middle of town and watch the shoppers pass by. it is also located on a street with my pubs so handy to pop in and out of but defiantly the joint cheapest pint in York, well worth a visit, especially in winter with some lovely open fires.

The York Arms is a Sam Smiths pub that is split into a left hand bar (that I did not visit), a small snug at the front that is accessed through a space saving sliding door to the right and a rear dining area to the right that is served by a hatch. The kitchen is open during spring months from midday until 15:00 and the pub grub mains are priced between a very reasonable £5 and £7.50. The beer is cheap, less than £1 for a half, and as per Sam Smith’s policy there was no television or music playing.

I found the quiet in here away from the madness outside very tranquil and next time I find myself surrounded by drunken Teesside folk I will think of this pub.
