History is alive and well at York’s restaurants
Having survived the rule of the Romans, Vikings and the Normans, York has experienced a lot of changes in the last few centuries. Today, conquest remains a thing of the past – contemporary migrants don’t need to pillage and destroy to make York their home. Instead they move here to partake in the relaxed way of life this charming city is known for. Tradition can be experienced all throughout the city, especially in the city’s bustling English pubs. These classic hangouts usually offer a range of amazing ales, fine wines and home-cooked meals ranging from bar bites like sausage rolls to big spreads of English favourites – think bangers and mash, Yorkshire pudding and fish & chips. On Sundays, many English pubs and restaurants in York offer a special Sunday roast, a traditional feast that brings people together from all over the city for juicy roasted meats, gravy, potatoes, and a range of other accompaniments depending on the particular restaurant.
