Apparently one of the oldest pubs in York? Possibly one of the smallest as well! Not withstanding a quaint pub where I had drinks with a few friends. Seem to recall the prices were pretty fair for York. Definitely worth a visit.

You know what forget all the negative reviews, we found this little pub by chance, once you enter the pub area is no bigger than your front room, we were greeted by a very welcoming bar man, who took us down a corridor which was all on a slant and entered the quirky restaurant everything is in keeping with the...

Not being a believer of the whole ghost theme, whether the Golden Fleece is York's most haunted pub, I do not know. However I do know tired and grubby when I see it. Whilst grubby can sometimes work, it can appear to illustrate character: this grubby is just unpleasant. Notwithstanding this the pub was very busy which is normally a...

Lovely weekend away, wanted to try some local pubs, this is one to go to.. Food was great, live music was fantastic, only down side was no real spirt selections other than the bog Standard spirts! It does get busy so would recommend reserving a table if u would like to eat.

We had to sit upstairs for our meal which again was tired and uninvitng. The menu was plentiful but i think they would...

Having had trouble finding food or service In two other 'traditional' pubs in York we tried the Golden Fleece and we're lucky (!) to get a seat at last. The low lighting being part of the charm we were fairly happy to find somewhere cosy, warm and adequately staffed. Overall the staff were indifferent, the tables dirty, the service slow...

Great little pub, very atmospheric, sadly let down by poor food. Over cooked and seemingly "old" food, especially the chips which were hard and barely edible and meat over cooked badly. Would recommend for a drink and to look at the pub, but not the food

Having visited the pub for meals previously we were very disappointed when we called at the Golden Fleece on the afternoon of Wednesday December the 21st. After struggling to read the menu due to the poor table lighting, which we have not had a problem with on our earlier visits, we ordered some meals. Three of us ordered chips which...

Visited whilst on weekend break. Very cosy, very old and full of character. Very busy at the time of our visit. Excellent location right in the centre of the city. Reasonable bar prices and will visit again when in York.
