Liquor Store
“Choose one of the hundreds of cocktails on offer (Eva's favourite is The Battenberg) before taking a seat outside along the wall mural or stumble up the wonky staircase to sit on a four poster bed looking over the bustling Harry Potter style streets of York. You'll be sure to meet some interesting characters here. Johnny Depp gives it a thumbs up!”

Bar

“Just a short walk out of town to Bishopthorpe Road area you will find a bustling high street with plenty of places to eat and do a spot of local grocery shopping. Angel on the Green, a converted bike shop still has a repair service and small area with bike accessories. A local independent place to relax and enjoy a drink and something to eat. They always offer a specials board with light bites and something a little more substantial. Try the fish finger sandwich.....fresh light battered fish goujons between two thick slices of soda bread! Delicious! Homemade food, with something for everyone.”
