Amazing pub. It definetely has the oldest world charm of any Pub I've been in and it doesn't come across Touristy and fake in doing so. Really huge for a pub (goes far back). Great prices too, £2.90-£3.50 for a nice pint (but beware of the very low end price as they are lower in alcohol %). Food was very impressive and affordable. Got a wonderful southern style chicken burger that well may...more

As for history, this place is just fantastic. It's one of the oldest (if not THE oldest) continuously operating pub in London. The oldest piece is the oven in the center of the main room....more

What a wonderful pub. I have discovered that whenever you have friends or family from out of town (or visiting from another country), the Cittie of Yorke is the kind of place that gets them excited.

When walking in you find yourself stepping back in time, and even the prices are from yesteryear! Sam Smiths prices are very good, especially for London, and the pubs themselves are incredibly...more
