    I'm going to York this weekend with the better half, staying in the Monkgate area. Any good pub recommendations when we need a watering hole?

    Hi
    if you walk into the town about half a mile or less there is the Roman Bath if you like bands as they are on nearly every night or the Old Starre inn which is oldie style with a good selection of beers, plenty of good watering holes around these areas

    You definitely need to go to the tap room at Brew York on Walmgate. Wayne and Lee graduated from homebrew club to start this awesome brewery! Super friendly guys and very inventive beers. Try the imperial Tonkoko, it's mega .

    Lots of nice places on Fossgate/Walmgate including The Hop and Saddlers Gin Bar if your better half is into that sort of thing.

    If there is one thing York is not short of, it's pubs.

    I’ll stop living in the past now

    Evil Eye is still there on Stonegate if you fancy cocktails aye. If you want to drink from a horn, there is a tiny Viking themed bar now opposite Pivni called Valhalla. It's a bit of a tourist gimmick though.

    We have a new area opened up on Piccadilly called 'Spark' which is a bunch of young startups in shipping containers part funded by the council. There are a couple of brewers in there with quirky setups.

    House of Trembling Madness has now moved to a much bigger premesis on Lendal. They have lost the cool taxidermy though .

    Went to wedding reception at Brew York and Tap Room, they have some great beers. So I third that place. There is also a Brewdog on Micklegate, had Beavertown Gamma Ray on keg last time I went, bit expensive though.

    There's the Rook & Gaskill five minutes walk out of town from Brew York which has a very good selection of both cask and key keg. Worth the walk!

    Thanks guys, had a great weekend and found a few decent pubs. Got a bit fed up with a few of them, where the impressive 6 or so real ale pumps presented a choice or either a hoppy pale, or a hoppy pale; a nice hoppy pale, a US style IPA (aka a hoppy pale), a hoppy golden coloured pale and a pale ale that was hop forward. Perhaps, I was expecting too much, they need to sell their beer, and not everyone is a sad old mild loving fart like me! Had a smashing York brewery dark beer, Centurion's Ghost I think. Yummy. Couldn't find Sarah Hughes, Rudgate Ruby or any other mild anywhere, so I suspect I have only scratched the surface of York pubs. This of course means I need to return. Jolly good! :laugh8::beer1:
