Food & Drink
York has a great variety of cafes, bars, restaurants and pubs. Whilst many of you will wish to explore York and find your own favourites, we've listed a few of ours below. We have others, both for that special occasion and every day, and we're always happy to give our opinions, and hear yours. Chefs can change and new restaurants appear quicker than we can sample them!
