    Large and late opening Victorian styled pub with two bars, lots of seating, many, many beers and even a lovely roofed courtyard area. Ticks all the boxes, once of the best pubs in the City.

    The Old White Swan is a superbly presented example of a traditional 16th Century pub, wonderful Victorian style covered courtyard, welcoming atmosphere, great food & drink, like coming home.

    Very nice in the tudor bar. As with all Nicholsons pubs (mostly found in London but a nice surprise to find many in York) seasonal ales mean there's always something new to try for ale fans.

    £10 for two huge portions full english breakfast with drinks. Wonderful services as well.

    Wow the locally produced sausages are great. Go for bangers & mash. I had pork & ale, son had wild bar & apple. Both great. Beer very good too - real ale

    The Cumberland sausage and mash is gorgeous and if not too hungry, not much!
