- Good places to eat and drink in York?
Go to the “house of trembling madness” for a good selection of beer – there’s a bar upstairs. Toby’s Pivni recommendation is also decent. I also like the Snickleway Inn on Goodramgate for a proper pub with a fire.
You could also buy an excellent pork pie from the York Sausage Company on the Shambles, and sit in the bar/beer shop next door to enjoy a pint with it.
A number of pubs in town have live music on pretty regularly, so probably not hard to find if you check out a few during the day.
For dinner, The Star Inn the City is really good. There’s also a polish place on Walmgate that comes recommended for something a bit different. And bistro 5 (or something like that) at the bottom of Gillygate.Posted 4 years agothetallpaulSubscriber
Visit The House of Trembling Madness. The bar is above the shop on Stonegate.
You have a really good choice of placed to eat, but I’d recommend that you have a look at the places on Fossgate/Walmgate. Barbikan (Polish), Walmgate Ale House (English), The Hop (Wood fired Pizza), Khao San Road (Thai), Loch Fyne (Fish) and Mumbai Lounge (Indian) to name just a few. The Fossgate social is also very nice for a coffee.
Must also recommend Rustique (French), but usually have to book ahead.
So many pubs.
Just have a wander and see what you find. York is relatively compact, so quick to return to somewhere later on if you wish.

Pivni and the Trembling Madness seconded – both are excellent if you like your beer. We ate at a vegan place not far up Swinegate from Pivni which Google maps tells me was “El Piano” – it was definitely a bit different and very boho if you fancy that kind of thing. Also, have you scheduled a visit to Betty’s tea room into your daytime plans? If not, you really should!Posted 4 years agorascalMember
There was a thread on this a little while ago.
Beers – HOTM – be prepared for silly strength beer!
We had a great curry here.
Beautiful food at the Guy Fawkes Inn by the Minster.
Lame with pesto and pine nuts was amazing (2 years ago).
Eggs Benedict at Betty’s is fantastic – for the morning after.
Silly cheap Samuel Smiths beer at the Kings Arms pub on the river – ‘the pub that floods’.Posted 4 years ago
A ghost walk goes from here at 8 every night too – a must do if you haven’t done it before – ends near the curry house too which is a bonus!thetallpaulSubscriber
Must also mention La Cremeria on High Petergate. Was in there last night with our daughter. She has the brownie with icecream, and hogged the lot. No sharing there. The bit I nicked was really good, as was the ice cream. Our hot chocolates were excellent too.Posted 4 years ago
All homemade on the premises. Will be going back, several times.
Much cheaper than the other chocolate based eateries and the staff were lovely.
