And if you’re just in it for the thirst-quenchers you won’t be disappointed. There’s a fine selection of beers and ales on offer (as you’d expect from a good Yorkshire bar) as well as the full range of spirits, hand-selected wine and delectable cocktails. It’s the perfect place for a drink and a nibble as much as a three-course feast! And it’s only a 15-minute walk from our flats for sale in York.


The Star Inn

If you’re looking for good food in York, here’s another restaurant situated within an historic building, The Star Inn offers up seasonal dishes from a kitchen headed up by Michelin Star Chef Andrew Pern. Located in the old Engine House, which is part of York Museum Gardens, it has a sprawling deck which overlooks the canal – a perfect place to enjoy al fresco dining. The décor is rustic and understated on the outside with a cosy, casual interior. If you’re celebrating a special occasion, book in for one of their chef’s dinners. A Michelin experience where you’ll eat your way through a tasting menu specially prepared by one of Yorkshire’s most successful Chefs - a gastronomical experience indeed.
