A very nice back street pub near its sister pub the swan, personally my favorite out of the two. five real ales were dispensed on my visit with Timothy Taylor boltmaker (£3.25) and Leeds Pale (£3.00) being good value for the area and very good condition.

the pub is on the small side so visitors must arrive early on weekends to secure a seat. The pub has two large screens showing the rugby world cup when i was there and also has a small side room with a dart board.

A very nice local pub outside of the hustle and bustle of York, perfect for a quiet sit down drink, well worth a visit.

This back street local's pub takes its name from a slipway that used to run down Clementhorpe, past the pub all the way to a boatyard on the River Ouse. Much like the Phoenix Inn, this was a fairly bog standard Marstons pub and in danger of being given up on, before the owners of the nearby Swan Inn decided to take it over and revamp it as a friendly local with a good beer range. The entrance leads into a compact front bar which is carpeted and has padded banquettes around the perimeter, under some frosted glass windows with the pub's name picked out. There is also a lovely stained glass pane in the front door which proudly proclaims 'Slip Inn Free House'. On the end wall is a small fireplace, above which hangs a blackboard detailing some of the options available at the bar. A large TV set was turned off with background music playing unobtrusively instead. Moving past the right hand side of the servery, you emerge into a chequer tile floored area with an open seating area to the left, effectively behind the servery, offering plenty of low stool seating under a large old map of York. To the right there is a small side room up a single step which provides some good overspill seating, much needed on our visit, whilst a rear door leads out to a surprisingly pleasant courtyard style garden which was a nice spot to spend some time in on a bright afternoon.
On the bar there were three house beers - Leeds Pale, Rudgate Ruby Mild and Wold Top Wold Gold, plus two guests in the shape of Liverpool Craft Quoka and Taylors Boltmaker. The Leeds Pale I tried was very drinkable and the staff did reasonably well in working their way through a twenty strong Pubs Galore surge at the bar.
This is a great example of a well run back street boozer, with good beer, modest but comfortable surroundings and friendly service combining to great effect. The pub is well worth a visit in its own right, but with the Swan just a few yards up the road, there is an excellent double-header to be enjoyed here.

A decent enough traditional pub just outside the city walls and thought this was certainly worth doing as a double with the nearby listed Swan. We found the atmosphere on this particular Friday fine, but then there were 20 of us , so we were taking our own atmosphere around with us. Tried halves of the Rudgate Mild and the Leeds pale and both were in fine form.
