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.

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.

Lovely place. Lovely food and drink. Well looked after and felt perfectly safe throughout. Hugely impressive to be so well organised and covid secure but still giving a friendly and warm pub experience.

5th.visit post lockdown.
Excellent as always.
Very very safe, or I wouldn't keep returning ; which I intend to do very shortly.
The staff do everything possible to make your visit safe as well as enjoyable. And they succeed .

Food and staff excellent as always,however my first night out in over 5 months was ruined by the pub allowing a large very noisy group with 2 unruly kids touching other tables and being disruptive.I was shocked and felt uneasy that there was no social distancing amongst this group of around 10 people and my table in what are very small rooms at the Minster Inn.
As a local it’s my first ever bad experience there but really they should consider the size of each party under the current restrictions.Poor show sorry to say,the staff heard all of the noise and commotion and didn’t tackle it.They did however offer a 25% reduction the bill.
