SquareMeal Review of Cittie of Yorke

In the heart of the capital’s legal quarter, the historic Cittie of Yorke is a curious beast. With its awe-inspiring, medieval-style interiors – actually built in Victorian times as a reconstruction of the pub’s original 1430 design – the space ought to impose & intimidate. But bargain-basement Samuel Smith beers & a gaudy fruit machine tell a different story: this is an accessible, open-to-all space & very affordable to boot. A hotchpotch of local suits, tourists & wallet-watching students descend on the Yorke for dependable alcoholic refreshment, although there are few takers for the cut-price sandwiches, pies & curries. Laid-back staff know how to make everyone feel welcome.

Not a place to eat - truly awful pub grub. Macdonalds over road is better bet.

Do NOT eat here under any circumstances unless you want overly microwaved meals that are virtually inedible and average £15 for a main. DO drink here but ONLY if you like their own brand booze. DO soak up the olde London Inn atmosphere and architecture.
