Minster v1.1

Welcome to 'The Minster Inn'

The Minster Inn in Marygate York, has to rank amongst one of the finest real ale public houses in the World. Not only does it serve a fine selection of real ales but it is also a real pub. Popular amongst locals, students, tourists, dogs and archaeologists alike, all are welcome in this hidden gem of a pub. Seek it out on Marygate in York (but don't let too many others know!).

'Spring 2012'

With the Museum Gardens bursting with spring flowers, all at the Minster Inn are looking forward to the exciting new development taking place just over our 'garden wall' in a previously hidden part of York - for more details of this exciting new development set to open as early as spring 2012. With a new direct access to Exhibition Square from Marygate a pause at The Minster Inn will provide welcome rest for weary tourists and locals alike.

Minster Inn's Halloween pumpkin carving extravogansa saw an excellent show of talent yet again. Now into its 6th year.

How to find us?

It is perhaps one of York's best kept secrets, but the historic (over 100 years old) Minster Inn can be easily found tucked half way down Marygate (number 24) - just behind the 'Yorkshire Museum' and Museum Gardens. It is about 10 mins walk from the station and less than 5 mins walk from Bootham Bar and the 'other York Minster' - (the big Church). If you get lost give us a call (tel: 01904 624499) and we will be more than happy to give directions.

Extreme Apple Bobbing

Sal - head in bucket! Sal - wet

Some 'odd things' happen here at the Minster Inn. This years 'apple bobbing' turned somewhat 'extreme' with an attempt at pear bobbing - it should be noted that whilst apples float pears sink - adding a new challenge to the sport. 'Click here for some more must see pictures of this event and some fantastic examples of pumpkin carving!'.

A 'dog friendly' pub

Well behaved dogs (and their owners) are always welcome.

Real Ale

Camra Splash

Real Ale is beer that served as a 'live' product. This means that it is always fresh and delicious tasting. The Minster serves a variety of beers and ales constantly changing through the year. Dave's cellar has been awarded the 'Cask Marque' award as a tribute to its quality. The Minster Inn is also nationally recognised in being selected for Camra's 'Good Beer Guide'.

The Minster Inn is a community pub and plays host to a number of community groups. Rooms are available for free private bookings. The Minster Inn Chess club play their home matches here. The York Postal Harriers, running club (always welcoming to new members - no Postal association necessary) have their Wednesday evening training sessions from the pub. The staff and customers are supportive of a number of charities, both local and international - a special mention to MOSES. - Malawian Orphan Sponsored Education Scheme founded by Dave, H and Sam .
