Trail 1 The Minster to Monkgate - (green icons) 8+2 pubs

After staring at the front door of the Minster turn to the left and wander along the street in front of you. After the tea shop on the right is The York Arms. Further down is The Hole In The Wall followed by, at the Botham (ancient gate way) The Lamb and Lion. Coming up the other side there is The Eagle and Child and then The Three Legged Mare.
Now walking past and along the side of the Minster the road curves round and The Cross Keys appears on the corner. Up the road from this is The Golden Slipper followed by The Royal Oak.
Opposie the Cross Keys is Vahe and then just down the road is, on the right The Habit and on the left The Snickleback Inn.

Golden Slipper is a multiroomed traditional bar. The entrance takes you along a short corridor to the main bar area with the servery ahead on the left. There is seating round to the left between the window and the servery. Off to the right are two smaller rooms and just beyond the bar area a small ‘library’ room. There is a outside courtyard at the back. Offers food.

Royal Oak has 17th Century Inn emblazoned outside (perhaps 1591) on a mock Tudor frontage. Inside is a corridor where there is a small sitting room to the right; with a small bar first left then further on, still left, a lounge. The servery is in the middle and serves both these areas. Food is important in the lounge which also has a small seating area up a few steps. The back lounge has been tastefully and carefully decorated and then has red fairy lights hanging around the room.

It takes only one drink to get me drunk. The trouble is, I can't remember if it's the thirteenth or the fourteenth.

The Habit is another pub with a shop window appearance; however, it is not a bottle shop. Downstairs is a small room, which narrows with depth, with small servery at the far right. Downstairs has very basic tables and chairs while upstairs has low couches and low tables. There is also a terrace with York Minster touring over it. Food is recommended. Music most nights. Kegs piled in corners.

The Snickleway Inn is a popular local pub. The entrance takes you to the main bar area with a high ceiling. The counter is straight in front with some seating along the right by the window. Off of the main area are two other small rooms; one straight ahead and a thinner one to the left and down a step. These rooms have much lower ceilings. Despite the light from the large windows the pub has a dark traditional feel to it. Hard to tell whether the upholsterd banquette seating in the small room to the left could do with being re-newed or cleaned. There is a back outside courtyard.
