I booked ahead as I wasn’t sure how busy it would be and requested a table upstairs. Everything about the place was excellent and the portion size was generous. Well done Plonkers for a great meal experience.

Super little restaurant. Good service and excellent food and drinks. Can recommend the homemade steak and ale pie. Handy place to go before a night at the opera house.

More about Plonkers, York

When you enter Plonkers’ handsome two-storey premises from Cumberland Street you’re faced with a bar whose diverse tipples have earned the pub a reputation around York as being one of the city centre’s most comprehensive. Plenty of beer on tap and in bottles, red, white, and sparkling wines, Champagnes, cocktails – you name it, Plonkers can drop it down in front of you. As for the food, most of the action happens upstairs in a second bar with more of a restaurant atmosphere. It’s here that Plonkers Sunday carvery takes place, as well as a la carte dining with plenty of Asian, European, and British dishes on offer.

Plonkers menu takes in breakfast, snacks and light bites, and full meals. Grab a vegetarian platter or meat and cheese platter for two before tackling main courses like classic British beer-battered haddock and chips, Italian lasagne, Mexican burritos, Thai curries and more. If you’ve got a real appetite after taking in the sights in and around York city centre, go for something from the grill. Burgers and steaks are popular options.
