A must visit if you are in York. Downstairs is a fantastic emporium of hundreds of bottled beers. Upstairs is a room to eat and drink in although quite small and can get busy. In the cellar is a great range of spirits to choose...More

This is a medieval ale house and specialist beer merchant/store. It is simply amazing, the quirky food is excellent - robust cheeseboards , pies, stews, best locally sourced ingredients and has a 5 start rating from hygiene standards. They also have some amazing holiday apartments, check out their website
