York's Best Beer Garden

Being British we love to talk about the weather. As I write this we are enjoying one of those wonderful spells of sunshine which are all too rare in York.
Of course when we do have better weather we naturally gravitate outdoors and pubs lucky enough to have beer gardens become busy and happy places as we enjoy a drink whilst soaking up the sun.
Being an ancient city, York has limited space for beer gardens, particularly in the centre of town. Despite this there are still some great outdoor spaces attached to pubs and bars in York which are worth a visit. Our particular favourite is the Lamb and Lion which you will find on High Petergate right next to Bootham Bar.
The Lamb and Lion has a modest entrance which opens into the small bar area, behind which (as well as next to) are a number of snug little rooms which are full of great character and period features. If you head a long the maze of corridors and follow the sign for the garden, you will move outside to a set of steps which leads you up into the garden. Here you will discover an oasis in the middle of York, with loads of seating as well as small mobile bar which operates periodically.
What really sets does beer garden apart from others are the views and tranquility. To one side you will have a great view of the Minster and you can enjoy the times as time passes by. Rising above the beer garden on the other side you will be presented with York’s city walls, and you can watch the procession of people exploring the old city boundary as they look enviously down on you enjoying your favourite tipple.
The Lamb and Lion offer arrange of fantastic food as well as a good selection of lager and real ales (guest beers change regularly), and as well as having what we consider to be the best beer garden in York, we also would recommend visiting in winter and spending some time in some of their cosy little snug rooms.
So if you are in the city of York, and you’re looking for somewhere peaceful to enjoy a drink and perhaps have something to eat, then head off to the Lamb and Lion you won’t be disappointed.
