England v Scotland – Any good pubs in York?

Posted in England, Friendlies on July 17, 2013 by Tartan Army Soldier

I have to be in York on 14 August!

As you can imagine this is a somewhat inconvenient clash with the important matters going on at Wembley. I had been hoping to head to the Rob Roy and enjoy the atmosphere there. However, I now have to travel to York, and have to figure out where to watch the game.

So, getting to the point, does anyone know any good pubs in York where I can watch Scotland destroy the opposition?
