This pub, one of the oldest in the city, forms part of The Fibbers Family, with Fibbers Bar only just down the road. Formerly a 16th Century coaching inn, the beer garden was originally used to stable horses. Reputedly haunted by five different ghosts, this is a pub with an extensive history going right back to 1503, and because it is built on a wooden frame with no foundations, the uneven floors and walls make it look a little like an Escher drawing.
The shambles room was a waste of £90 there was no fresh flowers in the room as shown on the website page and the state of the room was terrible the bathroom tap's were looose and the tv was so small it was like watching everything in miniture hardly any heat coming from the radiator and the tiny electric fan heater did'nt work!then there was all the noise from drunk's getting picked up by taxi's over the road outside mark's and spencer's untill the early hour's then there was the delivery lorry's making all night delivery's untill gone 5am .The welcome from the owner's were let's say not that welcoming and the only thing tha went bump in the night in this "haunted pub" we're the delivery lorry's all night .A total waste of money and an absolute let down and waste of time i was that desperate to leave i did'nt even bother with breakfast we just left what a dump!we must of slept maybe 1 hour if we were lucky
We stayed in St Catherine's room - it was picture perfect, dead quaint, with uneven floors and walls (what do you expect from something built 500 years ago!!) It was warm and cozy and in November during the worst storm of the year so far, we were very glad about that. We ended up having 2 meals as well as breakfast and they were delicious and very good value for money. The staff were friendly, as were the other guests. I have booked to go back next year and would highly recommend this pub as definately one to visit. Its central, room to park your car and full of character 10 out of 10!
the shambles room !!! all i can say about that is the name fits well ,the bathroom ...the panal was laid on the floor with all the motors on display for the jaccuzi bath[put it back myself] in the hall about a foot up should of been the fuse box well fastend but it was hanging onto the floor by its cable .. the staff did not bother to ask if we liked are stay,breakfast ,would we come back i dont even think she said good bye !!! i know its a very busy place york and they proba bly dont need to try to get anybodys custom , no ghosts !!!! dont think we would go back

York's annual floods have ensured the infamy of the King's Arms, appearing as it does on the local news every
