Do not eat here. I found metal in my food.

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 3, 2012

We went to the pub new years gay. I ordered the fish and chips and found a lump of metal in the batter which looked like the back of an ear ring. I nearly broke my tooth chewing on it and I am just glad I didn't swallow it. The staff apologised and gave me a replacement meal but I think it’s unforgivable to find contaminants in food particularly metal. I've worked in the restaurant trade and I found the attitude of the manager less than supportive and only mildly apologetic. He only offered my food for free not the rest of the group who picked at their meals for fear of what they would find. After the metal incident I did not have much faith in my meal nor did my fellow diners. The meal was ruined and a complete waste of money. I would never go back there again. It’s a real shame as it’s a beautiful pub with plenty of character. If there is metal in the fish batter what else could be in the food?

Unique Quality: DO NOT EAT HERE!

Living locally I have no need to stay in York but here is a photo of a hotel that gets good write ups in the local press. I have based my ratings on what I have read.

BIRTHPLACE OF GUY FAWKES

by written on January 17, 2007


The Guy Fawkes Hotel is a small Georgian building just across a narrow lane from the St. Michael-Le-Belfrey. This church is just opposite the main doors (not used as an entrance now) of York Minster. They offer a variety of rooms and you can even rent the cottage Guy Fawkes was born in!

They have the following facilities:
* Guido's Lounge for a cold beer
* Guido's Restaurant for small parties
* Bed & Breakfast accommodation

From their website: Tariff 2007
Twin / Double £90
Four Poster - views over York Minster £110
Large Four Poster - views over York Minster or in Guy Fawkes Cottage. £120
Family Room £120

Prices are for two people per night inclusive of Breakfast and VAT

Unique Quality:
Its historical secret is an ancient cottage in a small courtyard behind the hotel – the birthplace of Guy Fawkes. Guy (also known as Guido) was born here, baptised at the church next door and plotted to blow up Parliament and the King in the Gunpowder Plot. He was caught, tortured and executed. And so the legend of Bonfire Night began. Even if you do not stay in the hotel, pop in for a peak!

* Please note Guy Fawkes was called Guido because he served in the Spanish Army.

The Best Location in York

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 26, 2006

This is a very pricey (by my standards) hotel, located directly across the street from Yorkminster. If location is everything, then this is the place to be. You won't find anyplace that is closer to everything in York.

Unique Quality: Behind the hotel is a 16th century cottage, reputedly the birthplace of Guy Fawkes. For those who may not remember, he is one of York's most famous (or infamous) sons. In the early 17th century, he attempted to blow up the Houses of Parliament. His plot was foiled, and he was captured. Under torture, he was forced to reveal the names of his co-conspirators, who were later rounded up. Then he was executed in the same horrible manner as William Wallace (for those who saw the movie Braveheart). And this is where he came from.

The hotel has a fine pub and restaurant, right where you want to be in York.

Directions: On the south side of Yorkminster.
