The Rooke and Gaskill was on my last time checking a partnership between Castle rock and wheyfare Bank Brewery s. for this there is always one of each brewery's beer on the bar at all times, Harvest pale seems to be a permanent fixture. They sell eight cask ales and three cask cider/perries and these are always kept in a very good condition. Their rage is one of the best in York as no multinational beers are ever found so no Bombardier or Doombar here only beers from Micro brewerys near and far. They used to all be sold at a very reasonable £2.80 a pint until very recently when the price rose to £2.90, not ideal but still very competitive. Brass castle, Roosters, Kellham Island and Great heck beers feature regularly. They also have a very good selection of keg beers from craft brewery's such as Brewdog and Sierra Nevada.

Avery good pub that gets very busy on all nights of the week. The only hindrance is the cocky attitude of the landlord on occasion who seems like a bit of a general loud mouth show off. His sometimes overly forward/ sarcastic attitude infuriates customers and brings the professionalism and invite of the great pub down, but that is not to mock his staff who are some of the best and friendliest I have came across in York.

The Rook and Gaskin is a thin pub with seating areas at the front and rear and a bar on the left hand wall that faces seating up the right wall. I counted eleven hand pumps and many premium keg fonts. There was some background music playing and a plasma screen on the rear wall was switched off. I found the barman to be extremely friendly and he informed me that this is a popular student haunt. There were no students during my recent Friday afternoon visit as they were all on Easter holidays.

This is a decent pub where I had a very enjoyable visit.

Nice unpretentious pub just outside the city walls. Bit of a walk to get here but worth it as part of a treble with the Rose and Crown and Wagon and Horses on the other side of Lawrence Street.
The pub has been well described by previous reviewers and the decent beer range for the Pubs Galore crawl as detailed by reviewers below. I went for the Great Heck Treason Stout and a fine choice it was too..
