The wife's favourite pub in York so we had to visit it before we left for the big smoke!

Busy in both rooms when we arrived just after 9pm on a recent Friday. We quickly secured a table and a couple of seats before I headed to the bar where 5 hand pumps had 5 ales on, the Landlord being on the same top form as my last visit in April.

A couple of pork pies were purchased along with the loan of the jars of branston and coleman’s mustard.

Pork pie’s duly polished off we settled down to a long chat with a few locals while groups did the same around us.

This really is a cracking pub, not quite my favourite in York but it’s well and truly up there.

This was our last pub of the weekend and time for a revisit to one of the wife’s favourites.

We arrived just as the live music in the back room was about to start so we sat in the front sung area & chatted to the barman.

4 ales on the pumps, I had a couple of pints of Ridgeside Brewing Co’s Roosevelt @ 4.5% and Timothy Taylor’s Landlord which were both on fine form.

The music was lively, entertaining & not to loud or intrusive from where we were sat.

We whiled away a few hours chatting to the locals & enjoying our beers in this quality pub, another one for the will return to list…which is growing!

Second visit to this pub - well third actually, but the first time it had closed down. I don't remember too much about my previous visit, apart from the fact it was very quiet. On Saturday evening, there were more people in and there was a much better atmosphere. We sat in the back room and chatted with both the locals and staff. The ale range is good - Hop Studio Mokaya, Copper Dragon Golden Pippin, Slaters Rye IPA & Wold Top Bitter. Cider was The Hogfather. The Mokaya was certainly very spicy. But all credit to the barmaid. She did warn me and offered a sample first. This pub is definitely growing on me.

Excellent Pub tucked away behind the city wall. Front public bar with wooden floors etc looked original. Rear of the pub had a band on and was lit by candles on the tables. Good bar staff,Wold top Brewery Wold way £3.00 was a good pint.

The Phoenix is a pub that eluded me on my last 2 visits so on this visit it was a must tick.

9pm on a Monday night and the front bar is busy while the back bar has a meeting going on, cannot remember what they were meeting about.

In the front bar there's 5 pumps all serving ales. My first drink I opted for a pint of Salamander Thunder Thief @ 4.8%. My 2nd drink was a bottle of Wold Top's Scarborough fair IPA.

About half full, but this doesn't take away that this is a proper well run pub. Knowledgeable and friendly bar man, good choice of draught and bottled ales, original decor and in a position just inside the city walls that makes you walk from town to get here...and it's well worth it.
