Large multi-roomed Nicholsons pub in the centre of York, with a number of different bars. Different ales are on in some of the bars. The beer selection was Leeds Pale, Thwaites 13 Guns, Woodfordes Norfolk Hawker, Nicholsons Pale Ale, John Smiths Cask, Fullers London Pride, Marstons Pedigree, Kirkstall Three Swords, Broughton Brewers Gold, Sambrooks Lavender Hill & Artisan Amarillo. No real ciders, as far as I could see. But I did try a Weston's Mortimer's Orchard cider from the keg - one I hadn't seen before. Busy. But there was plenty of seating.

4th pub in York, another Nicholsons house...with a good and varied range of ales.

5 ales on the hand pumps, my choice was Jarrow Brewery's Isis @ 5.0%, another quality pint.

Superb barman, not come across a guy this good for a long time. I commented on he's cheerfulness...truly a good worker with a smile on he's don't see in London very often!

Large pub that on the day I visited had a separate bar and dining room, though the dining room was not that busy when i walked through it.

High vaulted ceilings, with wagon wheels on display.

Again a quality town centre pub.

A Nicholson's pub. Sprawling with several different seating areas and bars and plenty of wood paneling. The staff were friendly and attentive. Lots of real ales on offer. Yorks Terrier, Titanic Cappuccino, Doombar and Nicholson Pale Ale were just a few.

Went here on a Saturday lunchtime before going to the football. The staff were very welcoming and attentive. A good choice of ales and of good quality, the service and food were both good. Worth a visit.

The Old White Swan is quite a pleasant old coaching inn, and my first impression was that it had the look of a pub group “refurb”. Sure enough - it is one of the Nicholson chain, with some nice Victorian features behind the bar.

It was rammed when I walked past earlier in the evening, and had quietened down considerably upon my return. The bar staff were most polite and attentive, and I partook of an extremely potable pint of Salopian “Darwin” at £3.05. John Smith’s cask Bitter was also on offer, along with Cropton Brewery “Red I.P.A.”, Thornbridge “Jaipur”, and most unusually, all the way from Michigan, North Peak Brewing Company’s “Furry Black I.P.A.”.

A not-to-be-sniffed-at 6/10.
