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.

When we arrived we was put in the corner & told we only had till 8.30 to eat and have a drink. We was rushed into ordering our food & drinks & the food wasnt nice at all. We was rushed into leaving the pub & there had been lots of people sat there longer than us who wasn't told to leave. Very poor service & we want be coming again

With a blend of a traditional British pub with Italian food - The Minster Inn is a must for any pizza lover. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was exceptionaly. I will definitely be visiting The Minster Inn again and to top off the whole experience - they have a restaurant dog that potters around the pub!

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.
