SquareMeal Review of
Cittie of Yorke
In the heart of the capital’s legal quarter, the historic Cittie of Yorke is a curious beast. With its awe-inspiring, medieval-style interiors – actually built in Victorian times as a
reconstruction of the pub’s original 1430 design – the space ought to impose & intimidate. But bargain-basement Samuel Smith beers & a gaudy fruit machine tell a different story: this is an
accessible, open-to-all space & very affordable to boot. A hotchpotch of local suits, tourists & wallet-watching students descend on the Yorke for dependable alcoholic refreshment, although
there are few takers for the cut-price sandwiches, pies & curries. Laid-back staff know how to make everyone feel welcome.
