The Ackhorne, York

Micklegate is one of the main drinking/clubbing streets in York and this is a nice quiet (although not too quiet) haven just off the main run. Not a massive range of beers but what they have is always good - I can't remember ever having a bad pint here - and served by friendly staff. A definite advantage - at least for a smoker or anyone who likes to drink al fresco - is a good-sized, covered and heated beer garden that is comfortable and often has a good atmosphere (the beer garden does often seem to have a faint smell of metal polish, which is intriguing but not unpleasant.) Not one for a lively night out of for a nice pint in pleasant surroundings you can't go wrong.

The Rook and Gaskill, York

Every now and then I do pop into this pub and think "why don't I come in here more often?" ... then I remember. First, the positives. The pub unquestionably has a good range of beers and good live music (unlike some reviewers I've always found the quality of the music very good.) I've had a couple of bad pints which the staff have begrudgingly replaced but generally the quality of the beer is average. The problem is the landlord/tenant, whose attitude to customers seems to range from unfriendly to downright offensive, Fortunately I've never been on the wrong end of this but it's enough to make for a very unwelcoming atmosphere. Personally I'd rather give it a miss.
