this is quite a traditional pub inside with a convivial atmosphere. Sadly in terms of York city centre it’s a bit humdrum really, not the real ale destination it claims to be anyway with only two of seven real ales on (Doom Bar and Landlord). A standard city pub.

The Exhibition is a nice real ale pub just outside the city walls with a lovely unchanged wooden interior but is deceivingly and randomly priced on some drinks. On the bar was Copper Draggn golden Pippin (£3.37) York guzzler (£3.54)Doombar (£3.43) Black Sheep Bitter(£3.59) as well as several other including Timothy Taylor Lndlord (£3.97!!!!!!) other outragous prices were for non ale drinkers so beware as you will be charged £3.93 for carling, £3.90 for strongbow, £4.26 for Guinness and £4.36!! for Stella!

Aside from the expensive drinks on some items the beer is very well kept and my Pippin was in very good condition as i sipped it in the large sun trap beer garden that is very popular on warmer days. I would return but will be watching what i order.

The interior of the Exhibition is L shaped with seating to the left of the entrance and also up the right hand wall to a conservatory with seating at the rear. The décor is traditional with old pictures on the walls and copper pots hanging from the ceiling. During my recent Saturday afternoon visit there was some background music playing for the benefit of the ten or so other customers and I didn’t spot any televisions. This pub is larger than its peers within the city walls so it felt very quiet, which was a blessing after spending an hour or so listening to the bleatings of drunken hen party participants. Out the back is a large concreted beer garden that is lined with picnic tables.

I counted seven hand pumps that were drawing six cask ales and I found the service to be friendly. I had a perusal of the lunchtime menu to find the main dishes all priced under £10. The evening menu kicks in at 17:00 when I imagine the prices inflate. However, there are meal deals throughout the week including a steak night, burger night and curry night.

I had a decent pint of York Brewery’s Guzzler and would have no problem returning.
