Welcome to the Royal Oak

Here at the Royal Oak we are committed to bringing you the amazing pub experience that Yorkshire is known for. Situated right the heart of the city, just down the road from the Minster, there is nowhere better to come for a pint or a lovely meal with your family and friends. Our chefs are hardworking and ready to prepare those comforting favourites for you after a long day of exploring or just for a nice meal out with your loved ones.

Our bar staff and servers are caring and friendly, and we are always trying to bring you the best and most personal service we can. To us, there is nothing nicer than making our customers’ days special and better than when they came in! On offer here at the Royal Oak, we have an amazing selection of cask ales and fine lagers for you to choose from. We also have an extensive premium gin selection, with Fever Tree tonic offered to accompany your gin of choice.

Also available, is our free-to-hire 15th century function room; a gorgeous space with a lovely atmosphere for your party or meeting! (Let us know if you see our resident ghost!) If that doesn’t entice you yet, we have a cozy snug, which is a lovely room for smaller groups to eat or drink in. The main dining area of our pub is full of little nooks to enjoy, with fairy lights creating a calm and relaxing space to have dinner and spend time in. As winter approaches, we start turning on our roaring fires in the front and back bars. So welcome; enjoy a whiskey, wine or ale with us as the best time of the year comes around. We can’t wait! See you soon.
