Great location right on the shambles. Very quirky pub nothing is straight, floors, walls, doors all slanted. We stayed in Lady Pecketts room which is supposed to be the most haunted room but didn't see any ghosts, the only odd things that happened were the light went bang and tripped the electric but that could have just happened because one...

Just got back from York after a nice long weekend. Having went pass the Golden fleece a couple of times we decided to go for a drink. We couldn't sit indoors as we were not eating which is a shame. At a later stage we decided to order food it has to be said that the disappointment ofmnot sitting down...

Visited the Golden Fleece on a recent trip to York and loved the old world charm of the pub. There was some good live music on both the nights we visited the pub and the atmosphere was great. The drinks were good and the bar staff friendly, we will definately visit again on our next trip to York.

Good pub food, great atmosphere, fantastic value. The bar staff were great and very helpful with what to see in York! Nice outdoor area. Really recommend trying the pies as they're all handmade- marvellous with chips, gravy and a pint of Timothy Taylor

We stayed for two nights and didn't really find any physical haunted phenomena aside from the fact that our TV kept going on and off for about 5 mins each night at 4am, and a loud unexplained bang from the bathroom. We stayed in the Shambles suite. Nice comfy bed, luxury bathroom and plenty of dust orbs to photograph. Breakfast...

We stayed a couple of nights in the Shambles suite. Expecting a bit of a ghostly adventure the resident departed were on holiday it seemed. Saying that the TV decided to flicker its stand by light at 4am on both nights and a bang from the bathroom on the second night was unexplained. The Golden fleece has plenty of character...

My husband and I keep going back to the Golden Fleece, absolutely amazing place to stay. We love its old charm and atmosphere. Staff have always been helpful and friendly. The food there is fab and very reasonably priced! We just can't get enough of it and want to keep going back! Very highly recommended!
