Once again we were short listed for the best pub in York. In a competition run by the city’s official tourist board, Visit York, The Ackhorne, the Evil Eye, the Golden Fleece, the House Of The Trembling Madness and The Maltings battled it out to take the crown in the city’s annual Tourism Awards, this year it was left to the public to vote through an online poll so the winner was to be the pub that did the most successful marketing. Each year they have a category at the awards that is left to the public vote. We don't advertise or do marketing as a policy (not fans of adverts on ITV / local radio etc.)
The Golden Fleece did a campaign and won this year.
So far this year has seen some great new beers in store and on tap plus some excellent new food additions. We have treated the customers with some top quality French horse (due to the ridiculous media attention from horse our local Yorkshire beef has had 3 price rises and we still haven't increased any prices for food or drink. Supermarkets have been pressured into buying British thus demand has soared, we are happy for the local farmers of course) .
Thanks to all those who voted for us!

We'll try to update everyone with anything that's exciting or new. Give us some feedback!
