Drink and Music

Rupert Holmes -
Escape (Pina Colada Song)

In the book The Lord of the Rings

York is a palce where many people enjoy a pub crawl as it is full of interesting bars.

Almost all pubs do food.

Lots have outside seating.

Most have some sort of courtyard to the rear for smoking if not sunbathing.

Several have room top terraces.

York CAMRA offers a map identifying real ale pubs.

Steve Bastables gives his take on many pubs in York

There are five pub crawls illustrated for York involving 39 drinking establishments. Several pubs feature in more than one crawl.
All journeys start from the Minster which is the tallest place in York
1. Around The Minster.
2. In the middle lanes
3. Down Stonegate
4. Around King's Square
5. About Fossgate

Trail 2 - Down Stonegate (yellow icons) 7+2 pubs

From the front door of the Minster walk along the right hand side and half way along turn down to the right and cross over High Petergate into Stonegate.
Above your head is a banner proclaiming Ye Olde Starre inn. A shop or two before this on the right is a bottle shop in which is contained The House of the Trembling Madness. this is followed quickly by The Evil Eye lounge and next door to this an alleyway taking you to Ye Olde Starre Inn.
Further down on the left is sighnpost directing you to Little Stonegate. Kennedys can be reached from a single door just after this on the left or, more obviously by going along Little Stonegate.
Additions - continuing along Little Stonegate brings you to Stonegate Yard and opposite it, Bobo Lobo.
Continuing back to Stonegate before the crossroads there is, on the right The Yorkshire Terrier and on the left The Punch Bowl.
Continuing across the crossroads on the right is Harkers and at the end of the walk is Lendal Cellars.
