Good Pub Guide Recommended

Friendly, well run inn, with interesting décor in old-fashioned rooms, fine drinks and smashing food; comfortable bedrooms

In warm weather you can make the most of the seats in the courtyard garden, the bottom of which offers views on three sides over the Vale of York; on the fourth is a charming view to the medieval church on the hill - supposedly the very hill up which the Grand Old Duke of York marched his men. This is a civilised inn that appeals to both locals and visitors who enjoy the pubby bar, excellent food and comfortable bedrooms. The old-fashioned lounge bar has venerable tables, antique seats and settles on flagstones, pictures and photographs on dark red walls, interesting satirical carvings in the panelling (Victorian copies of medieval pew ends), polished copper and brass and an enormous inglenook fireplace. In the bottom bar is a framed illustrated account of local history (some of it gruesome) dating to the 12th c, and a large framed print of the famous Durham Ox, which weighed 171 stone. The Burns Bar has a woodburning stove, exposed brickwork and large french windows that open on to a balcony. Black Sheep Best, Isaac Poad No.84 India Pale Ale, Timothy Taylors Boltmaker and York Guzzler on handpump, 20 wines by the glass, a dozen malt whiskies and interesting spirits; background music and board games. Bedrooms, in the main building or in renovated farm cottages (dogs allowed here), are well equipped, spacious and comfortable, and breakfasts are very good. The nearby A19 leads straight to a park & ride for York city centre. This is part of the Provenance Inns & Hotels group.
