Tucked on one side of Bootham Bar, this terrific pub meets drinking needs all year round: in winter, punters pack into the tastefully appointed bar area; come summer, they can hightail it up to the
beer garden, which nestles alongside the historic city walls and offers great views of the nearby Minster. There’s also a rather nice snug, which houses a couple of tables – perfect for a more
intimate tipple for two. The Lamb & Lion serves a regularly changing selection of locally brewed ales from Black Sheep and others, as well as a tasty and affordable menu ranging from cut-price
lunch deals for around £6 to more ambitious dishes such as moules-frites, wild mushroom risotto or lamb shank with spring onion mash. A must-visit pub in the city, and handy for an overnight stay.
