Great Beer
We’re passionate about our food & drink at The Minster Inn and serve the best in craft beers and spirits, accompanied with hand stretched, stone baked pizza.
The setting is a traditional Edwardian Ale House with the original layout and many original features all sympathetically refurbished. You can also spend time in our popular Ale Yard with friends or find a quiet corner with a book and a pint.
We're situated on the ancient street of Marygate next to the Abbey Walls, a fantastic setting only 5 minutes walk from the Minster and a few hundred yards from the Museum Gardens and the river Ouse.

Booked easily through OpenTable, outside table for six and strolled in bang on time, were given menus and drinks order taken promptly. Excellent service in the current "difficulties", very friendly & obliging. Pizzas were also excellent, lovely thin base and great selection of toppings, some unusual. Retired into the cleverly adapted snug for drinks when it started raining.

Although we were only there for drinks this time, the food looked amazing and we will definitely book for a meal next time. This is our pub of choice in York, you would not be disappointed. The staff are excellent, the pub is warm, very clean and respectful of social distancing. Always a great experience.

Great set up and very Covid secure. The menu is mainly pizzas - with a large range of toppings (including vegan friendly pizzas). The pizzas were excellent and very fresh and reasonably priced at £9.00. There’s also a good range of beers - particularly real ales. The service provided by the friendly waiters was excellent. Overall, a great dining experience at a very reasonable price.

Really enjoyed the time here, traditional pub feeling, staff most welcoming and friendly, made us feel like 'regulars'.. food was nice and well priced, not a big selection but that's a 'plus' for us..
Have already recommended it....
If we go to York again, we will definitely return..

I would 100% recommend this place for anyone visiting York!
The staff are so lovely and friendly. No rushing people out. Layout was brilliant and all guidelines were followed.

Me and my partner look forward to our next visit in October and we are definitely booking here for food again!

My partner is now a converted Espresso Martini drinker due to Josh and his amazing cocktail skills!

Come in as strangers, leave as friends!

Bought our first round of drinks and then was told that a lot of their menu options were unavailable. If we’d known before ordering the drinks, we wouldn’t have bothered. After a long wait for food, we ended up with cheese-less pizza with limited other toppings and no fries. So disappointing and barely an apology or discount to go with it.
