Great, traditional pub in what is inevitably a very touristy area. Well-kept Old Brewery Bitter at just £1.90 a pint. Simple tap room reached via a sliding door from the entrance lobby; comfortable lounge to the rear. Friendly welcome, god value food and service and a relaxed atmosphere. Well worth a visit. 9/10.

On Easter Sunday wandering around York the wife and I stopped at this Samuel Smith pub right next to the minster for a beer and sandwich.

1pm when we arrived, the lounge bar was half full with diners, the snug was packed and the saloon was banged out, all 3 areas served by 1 barman who was being run ragged but was doing a sterling job.

The York Arms has a very traditional interior with wood panelling in the lounge bar & stained glass windows, it’s also carpeted throughout.

The usual range of Sam Smith ales, I had a pint of Old Brewery Bitter while the wife a bottle of Organic Cherry beer, which is one of her favs in Sam Smith pubs.

Food was popular for this lunchtime visit, the sandwiches we had were very good and along with the beer was well priced, especially for this part of York as it’s quite touristy.

Will visit again as it has a nice homely feel to it.

It has gone from worse to even worse. The new landlady has allowed all the previously barred people back in with the result that there are frequent fights and loud arguments flying back and forth laced with four letter words. Tourists and families with children should not venture in, the atmosphere is so bad, especially on Saturday nights.

This pub has gone very much downhill over the last year due to the management being replaced with increasing frequency by Sam Smiths. Every time a new landlord moves in, the large number of barred people come back and have to be thrown out again usually after excessive noise, violence etc. I would advise tourists or families with children to avoid it.

Nice pub, due a refurb but the beer tonight was spot on.
