Booked easily through OpenTable, outside table for six and strolled in bang on time, were given menus and drinks order taken promptly. Excellent service in the current "difficulties", very friendly & obliging. Pizzas were also excellent, lovely thin base and great selection of toppings, some unusual. Retired into the cleverly adapted snug for drinks when it started raining.
Excellent staff. Friendly, helpful and efficient.
Great service and food/drink as normal. One of the best pubs in York :-)
Let's get rid of the Covid measures.
Great food and beer, staff really friendly and helpful, dog friendly as well
Although we were only there for drinks this time, the food looked amazing and we will definitely book for a meal next time. This is our pub of choice in York, you would not be disappointed. The staff are excellent, the pub is warm, very clean and respectful of social distancing. Always a great experience.
Superb scran and lovely vibe!! Best date night ever😁
Wonderful treasure of a pub, lovely ambience, food excellent - best pub in York.
Great pizzas and thanks for the great service looking after my fussy eater Freddie.
Great pizza, great beer. Friendly staff, and hot on keeping within the health guidelines/rules if that's important to you.
Gorgeous pizza's, excellent service & taking social distancing very seriously which made me feel at ease. Would recommend!
Fantastic as always!! Pizzas are amazing. Thankyou
The pizza was amazing the beer great. Would love to of stayed longer, but this covid business mentioned we were had a window but that is just the way things are the moment.
Will visit again if in York.
A hidden gem away from the crowds.
Great staff, good beer, decent food at decent prices. What's not to like.
Love the Minster Inn - great place!
Fabulous pizza and a really well thought-out menu. Plenty of choice for vegetarians and omnivores. A good selection of draught beers beautifully kept. Lovely setting and atmosphere. I really recommend this place.
Great set up and very Covid secure. The menu is mainly pizzas - with a large range of toppings (including vegan friendly pizzas). The pizzas were excellent and very fresh and reasonably priced at £9.00. There’s also a good range of beers - particularly real ales. The service provided by the friendly waiters was excellent. Overall, a great dining experience at a very reasonable price.
Excellent food and selection of drinks. Great set up and very good service. Really impressed and will definitely be doing back next time we’re in York.
Great staff, great pizza
A lovely meal. We sat outside with our dog and it was just perfect. Great service and value for money.
Impressed with the food and the attention to Covid safety of customers and staff. Excellent Pizzas. Wife says best gluten free she has had
A great visit. They took covid seriously, but maintained an ambience. Good food too. Great value
Really enjoyed the time here, traditional pub feeling, staff most welcoming and friendly, made us feel like 'regulars'.. food was nice and well priced, not a big selection but that's a 'plus' for us..
Have already recommended it....
If we go to York again, we will definitely return..
The service , Food and drink all good and the booking system is easy to follow.
Service very friendly helpful and polite. Lovely cosy atmosphere. Great food. Went back for lunch the next day, and still fab. Will definitely be back again
We had a great visit to the Minster Inn, the food and service were excellent. The COVID mitigations in place worked great and didn’t feel too obtrusive. Overall very happy with the experience and will definitely return soon.
Staff not friendly, and not very accommodating at all. Pizza was okay but nothing to rave about - made better myself.
All good and felt they had tried hard with social distancing.
Had a great meal. Lovely pizzas. Will certainly be going back next time we're in York.
Best pizza in the city with great beer.
Another excellent beers and pizza evening with great company.
And 2 for 1 on Sundays always hit the mark.
Keep up the great work guys
One of our favourite pubs in York continues to impress. Good beer, good food, friendly staff and a good atmosphere with safe COVID-19 measures in place.
I would 100% recommend this place for anyone visiting York!
The staff are so lovely and friendly. No rushing people out. Layout was brilliant and all guidelines were followed.
Me and my partner look forward to our next visit in October and we are definitely booking here for food again!
My partner is now a converted Espresso Martini drinker due to Josh and his amazing cocktail skills!
Come in as strangers, leave as friends!
Excellent food drink and service. Thanks..we will be back again soon!
We had a lovely evening at the Minster. So easy to book online and great to be able to specify an outdoor table. The setup was fantastic and we would definitely return.
Bought our first round of drinks and then was told that a lot of their menu options were unavailable. If we’d known before ordering the drinks, we wouldn’t have bothered. After a long wait for food, we ended up with cheese-less pizza with limited other toppings and no fries. So disappointing and barely an apology or discount to go with it.
Lovely atmosphere, great service and lovely food.
Lovely place. Lovely food and drink. Well looked after and felt perfectly safe throughout. Hugely impressive to be so well organised and covid secure but still giving a friendly and warm pub experience.
Awesome service as usual and the food was great. The table was ready when we arrived and perfect for 3 people.
Well managed and a slick operation
V good COVID-19 management
