In the city for a gig so this was our pre gig pub of choice. Good atmosphere inside and I found the staff to be really friendly. I'd go back.
York (now brewed at Black Sheep) - Centurion's Ghost Ale5.40ExcellentRich and dark with lots of chocolate and a little fruit. If it wasn't for the abv I'd be drinking this all night.
Copper Dragon - Golden Pippin3.90GoodLight golden ale, very fruity and really refreshing.
