Best Pubs in York for Food and Drinks
After eating and drinking my way around York for many years, I’ve put up this list of my favorite pubs in the city based on the quality of food, service, location, authentic pub vibe, the real ales on tap, my personal opinion, and customer reviews (so that it’s not just based solely on my opinion).

1. The Kings Arms (Best Pub in York Overall)
It’s difficult to pick the best pub in York as there are so many contenders. I’ve chosen my personal favorite, the Kings Arms, due to its prime location on the river and its excellent beer garden. It offers a great selection of ales, ciders, and wines, and is one of the cheapest pubs in York.
With pints for as little as £3.20, (in the south you’ll rarely find a pint under £5), this is a great place to come for a few drinks on a sunny afternoon or evening. The pub dates back to the 1890s so has a real homely feel to it, and there’s an open fire in winter which makes it a cozy escape from the cold.
The Kings Arms has a no-phone policy which some people don’t like, however, I think it’s excellent to be able to unplug for a few hours and just enjoy the ambiance without distractions. The pub doesn’t serve food but has a fantastic selection of bar snacks to ward off hunger if you’re feeling peckish.
