Busy bar/restaurant in the heart of historic York which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Minutes from York's wide collection of shops, varying from independent unique boutiques, to well known brands. Fantastic variety of continental beers, extensive quality wines and champagne. Great range of cocktails as well as local cask ales available. Few minutes walk from the famous shambles area. Situated on Low Ousegate overlooking the River Ouse. Perfect for any occasion!
