Return visit to the Waggon & Horses that I believed may have changed hands since my last visit. It's still owned by Batemans. So the ales are mainly from them - Salem Porter, Hooker, East Coast Screamer & XXXB. But they also had two guests - Brewsmith Anvil Ale & Oakham Citra. Ciders were Rosie's Pig & Cheddar Valley. Having been somewhat inebriated on my last visit and using the bar to prop myself up, I had a better chance to explore the interior this time round. There are 4 or 5 small rooms. One at the rear also has access to the bar and is quite cosy. The place was fairly busy with the rugby being shown in the main room. We ordered two of their burgers which were filling and quite tasty. Still a good pub. But it feels like Batemans have more of a hold over it now, making the ale range a touch more predictable.

A surprising pub inside as it don't look much from the outside.

My first opinion was this is a little gem.

We visited around 7.30 on a Monday evening and it was pretty busy, a group of fellas getting ready for a poker tournament.

6 ales across the pumps & 2 real ciders. With a varied choice of beers I was spoilt for choice so I went for a pint of Hales Brewery Fallen Heart @ 4.3%.

A good mix of locals and a rather drunk Geordie woman added to the atmosphere, landlord and bar maid very chatty and welcoming.

Bar Billards table in one room and sky sports on in the main bar.

A thoroughly decent pub that serves a varied selection of great beer.

Well, I'd previously been to the Rook & Gaskill just opposite here. But I'd never ventured into the Waggon & Horses previously. Both are very good pubs. The Waggon & Horses was a little quiet though. But the ale selection was good - Castle Rock Harvest Pale, Roosters The Italian Job, Batemans XXXB & Black & White, Wold Top Hello Velo & Salem Bridge Salem Porter. Ciders were Westons Rosie's Pig & Wyld Wood & The Bootle Kicking Cider Co. Rambler. I must remember to come out here to visit these pubs again next time I'm in York. Sadly I had no time to do the Rook & Gaskill this year.

Surprised to see so few reviews; as this pub served superb quality beer. A bit quieter tonight than last year but the Yella Belly, which I've never had a good pint of before, is majestic again. Friendly staff who asked if I wanted a top up. Great pub.

Only went in here because the Rook opposite was shut; thank goodness it was. This pub is superb. The range of beers is only supassed by the landlord's enthusiasm and knowledge. Apart for the amazing Batemans Salem Porter there was a wide range of micros including a stout. We went back later in the weekend for an evening there and for something to eat. Highly recommended
