Iron-railed steps sweep up to the grand entrance to this former assize court, set off one of York's old town web of narrow lanes and byways. Owning brewery Thwaites carefully and tastefully upgraded this Grade I listed building, incorporating the vaulted cellar bar and secluded cask bar into a stunning period interior. The tree-shaded terrace to the front is a popular place to dine alfresco, selecting from a contemporary, seasonally adjusted menu. glazed pork shank, winter broth of root vegetables, pearl barley and roast shallots; crisp polenta and sautéed mushrooms, wilted spinach, crisp sage and cep cream; or the spiced sweet potato and pumpkin burger may take the eye here; there's also a good range of small plate dishes and sharing boards.
