Lamb & Lion Inn

2-4 High Petergate, YORK, YO1 7EH

2 rosettes

Built quite literally into the ancient city walls and sitting in the shadow of York Minster, The Lamb & Lion offers everything you could reasonably ask of a historic pub: a labyrinth of cosy little rooms takes in a bar bristling with hand-pulled real ales and kitted out with church pews, bare wooden tables and a real fire, while skinny corridors lead to the back snugs and parlour dining room. Straight-talking traditional food aims to please all comers, and you can rest assured that the quality of the ingredients is up to scratch. Pub classics such as home-made steak pie with mash and real gravy, or fish and chips with mushy peas and tartare sauce sit alongside unpretentious ideas-perhaps lamb shank with garlic and rosemary jus, or wild mushroom risotto with parmesan crisp. Finish with the comforting simplicity of chocolate brownie and ice cream or a retro knickerbocker glory.
