Guy Fawkes Inn
Wonderful service. Staff were attentive without being intrusive. Remembered all our orders without even having to write them down and everything was served exactly as we had requested. Fab. The surroundings are as you would expect in such a historic building with wooden floors and misshapen walls. It is where Guy Fawkes was born after all. The old world charm along with some modern world accents succeeded in creating a cosy ambience with lots of atmosphere. The food was delicious and the menu had a good range of choices. I can recommend the creme brûlée with home made shortbread for desert. Sublime! Just a lovely experience all round. Would definitely go back and also recommend it to my friends.
What a lovely evening we had. Excellent service - we were made to feel so welcomed.
The food was fantastic; best pie we’ve ever had, lovely bangers and mash and my daughter loved her fish and chips!
Loved the history lesson too; the information about guy fawkes and his family was super interesting.
Will defo return when in York again.
Excellent service and lovely food. We enjoyed our visit very much.
We have been before and loved it then. So we came back and the food was gorgeous. I had the steak pie and I have to its the best steak pie, I had ever had. Will definitely go again. Great staff and very helpful. I don't drink and I asked if they made "cocktails" he said he could make one especially 😊
Only been a couple of times but love it, staff friendly and helpful, Sunday lunch was way more than expected a good plate full with nice Yorkshire's. Maybe could do with a bit more lighting for us older people! Definitely will go back.
Fairly priced food and drink, food comes briskly and well heated. I recommend the pork belly. Casual as a pub is expected to be but a definite step up from pub grub.
We greatly enjoyed the Conspirator's Menu, though vegetarians should be warned that there is only one veggie option for starter and main. Starter is the vegetarian soup of the day. Main is the agnolotti pasta. Both were delicious! Price is just right at roughly 12 pounds.
Great food and service in a lovely setting. Just what we needed after a very long drive to York! Good drinks too
The staff here were outstanding very helpful and kind. Excellent food and plenty of it. Charming Inn.
Love the place and the staff are really rather nice. and help make the experience extra special.
Great service at this restaurant.All cooked to order.Staff are very attentive and reasonable food prices.Would definitely return..Well done to all at the Guy Fawkes.
The staff were friendly and welcoming. We ordered the pie and did find the crust very thick. Really good if you like thick pastry!!
Would definitely go back but have the fish and chips. We had that last year and they were amazing!!
The famous steak pie is super - full of flavour and a lot to eat. The sirloin steak was cooked perfectly and very tasty. The fish and chips was what you would expect.
Good service and pleasant atmosphere.
Great atmosphere. Polite, knowledgeable and professional staff. Absolutely gorgeous food. We ordered fish&chips and a steak. Both were tender, juicy, full of flavour and simply delicious. That's our third time dining in Guy Fawkes Inn and it never disappoints. Top food, top service.
We arrived early for our booking but there was no problem and we were told that our table was ready and it was no problem. The staff were excellent and service also excellent. There is an extensive menu and we chose the mixed starter which had a taster of each starter included in it. This was quite a big starter and people with smaller appetites such as my wife may struggle to finish the main course. The main courses were also excellent and varied with a wide selection. Overall a very good evening with great food and service.
Good food and nice pub. Friendly staff ready to help. Go for steak pie. Very nice. 😁
Rude waitress who argued with us about the set menu. She said we hadn’t stated we wanted food off the set menu even though we had pointed to the specific part of the menu saying set menu and then she said our main portion was bigger than that of the set menu and would have to check with the chefs if we could order off the set menu for the desert option. Have stayed here before in the hotel which was nice and have eaten in the restaurant numerous times but won’t be going back due to the rude waitress!
I loved the history feel to this building. The staff are very friendly and helpful at the hotel and in restaurant/bar. I would recommend.
Guy Fawkes Inn had been recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed. Decent choice on the menu, big portions, reasonable value, good, friendly service and the food was excellent including one of my top 3 all time steak pies, legendary in fact.
Would heartily encourage residents and visitors alike to sample this pub/inn/restaurant with a cosy atmosphere in the heart of historic York in the shadow of the Minster.
Overall great night out
Lovely evening at the Guy Fawkes Inn. Bit hot inside but it was the hottest day of the year so far but otherwise great and staff so cheery and friendly. Food nice too.
Had the evening meal at the guy fawkes inn, cannot recommend it highly enough,
The food is amazing, staff friendly and accommodating, and the hotel restaurant itself has plenty of character and charm.
Go for the handmade steak pie, the meat is tender and the pie is so packed full of meat you’ll struggle to finish it.
Outstanding all around
Made to feel special, lovely food
Always very good food, in a nice setting and priced just right.
The restaurant were amazing. Good food, very welcome staff and the place is really comfortable. Featured for Guy Fawkes tradicional pie, wich take about 30 minutes to be prepair but worth it.
The initial restaurant staff member was utterly helpful, but at the end of the meal our payment was taken at the table by some tattooed, surly fellow we’d not seen before who was a bit stary. Maybe a few pointers re: his manners might not go amiss.
Food was delicious, staff were friendly and attentive
Very friendly staff,fantastic food great service defo will be back
Good pub food and very good service, good menu but it is a little bit predicatable. Would recommend.
I found the menu to be very poor. We didn't get asked how we like our beef or we weren't told how the need was cooked (sunday dinner) and for us was too under cooked. The fish had too much batter on. The last time we came here it was brilliant but felt let down this time. The service was fantastic though
This was our first time here after recommendation from friends who also stayed this weekend with us. Fantastic meal, great wine and very good value. Friendly staff. Look forward to visiting again next year.
Was ok but needs a little more variety on the menu. Also, was very dark. Food ok though and reasonably priced.
Delicious hearty food . The pies were amazing ( as usual) . I’ve taken one star off as my husbands portion of calves liver was “ starter size” . Up the portion size of the liver , guys , and it will be full marks from us 👍
Delicious food - variety enough for both pescatarians and carnivores - and great service. Bonus points for location near all of the sites we truly wanted to visit.
As always...................fantastic. Great food, great setting, good selection of beers.
Traditionally Historic building, with an aging smell. Rustic furniture. Truly feels l was back in time. Food portions where huge, great value and quality
I have visited Guy Fawkes on several occasions.
It has never failed to impress.
Lovely, cosy atmosphere.
Great selection on the menu and good value wines.
Outstanding pie, really couldn’t have been any better
Absolutely beautiful. Lovely atmosphere. The mackerel starter was a little bit small and they didn’t have any pigeon pie available. We opted for the steak pie which was very very nice and value for money.
Would definitely eat there again.
Great authentic pub, food was lovely. We had roast beef, curry and fish and chips followed by sticky toffee pudding. Great choice of beers and wines. Have dined here a few times and stayed, we will be back again.
Guy Fawkes never fails to impress.
A traditional pub, dark, comforting interiors.
Friendly and efficient service.
Wonderful chipolatas, followed by a beef roast...outstanding.
Crème brûlée.. light, moist and delicious with a perfect sugar crust.
We will be back very soon
