Going to be in York for a few days - Thursday/Saturday night taken care of, but Friday - we are looking for a nice pub for decent beer and food. Given my knackered ankle I would prefer a short walk from the Grand Hotel…
I’ve been to Brigantes, 114 Micklegate, York YO1 6JX on a number of occasions. Plenty of good real ales, various gins and whiskeys and decent pub food.
My son used to work there so I will check tonight whether it’s still as good as I heard they had got new chef / management recently.
It’s 0.4 miles from the Grand.
thanks - looks like it will be great.
Just spoke to Jack. The chef is really good - still the old one, the beer is still real ale but maybe not as adventurous (more mainstream) as before and the gin has a very good selection. All of his mates have left (it’s a student thing, they graduated) so he has no idea of service.
Fingers crossed you have a good night.
thanks Mick, that is brilliant.
We made it to Brigantes - decent range of beer, and managed to nab a table for food
@mickbald very nice food (i had corned beef hash, and Louise; fish and chips) great range of beer as well. Spot on recommendation…thanks
Oh and the service is great
Thank fuck for that or my career as a restaurant reviewer died early
Glad you enjoyed it, I’ll pass it on to Jack.
