Visited this 2019 Good Beer Guide bar last month and agree very much with the previous review. Th bottle shop is impressive with massive can and bottle selection, and the ground floor is very much a cafe/var feel to it. We went up a few steps on the ground floor for the table seating there, but I had to go up another floor to get the beers we wanted and bring it downstairs, and we were directed to toilets 2 floors up and found later that there was one down in the bottle shop. Good selection of cask and craft beers and we chose Pomona Island Session IPA Mosaic and Citra.

Multi-roomed sister pub to the original on Stonegate converted from a saddlery. The ground floor is very café bar in style with big girly friendly windows. There are a few seats and a sofa up a couple of steps to the rear. Upstairs there are two more public rooms and a bar which wasn't open on our Monday lunchtime visit. Above that is the kitchen, toilets and 2 function rooms. Downstairs is a craft beer shop where beer can be bought to take out or drink in for a small charge.The upstairs rooms are decorated with all sorts of bric-a-brac. The food menu is based on Yorkshire tapas, we didn't try any of those, but we shared an excellent charcuterie board which was great value. Three handpumps and several keg taps on the bar and both my pints were in excellent nick. We'll be back here both for the beer and the charcuterie.

Stonegate's big brother. This feels more like a Georgian drinking house than the Harry Potter-esque micro feel of the original.
OB has described it well below and I'd only add that the wide glass frontage makes the bar feel very airy and allows you to see how busy things are before committing. Very on our Friday evening visit.
Despite the numbers, service at the bar was swift, efficient and friendly and the atmosphere very genial throughout the place.
Our visit was on the second day of a Northern Monk tap takeover so all 11 keg pumps were taken up by Northern Monk over an astonishing array of strengths and styles of which none tried disappointed. The three cask offers were: Northern Monk Porter, Titanic Plum Porter and Cloudwater ESB (excellent).
Another must visit in York.
