Pubs with the Best Beer Gardens in York – there are lots of fabulous pubs with beer gardens in York. I am working on visiting as many as I can and expanding the list all the time!
Guy Fawkes Inn
25 High Petergate, York, YO1 7HP
The Guy Fawkes Inn is a “medieval inn in York that stands in the shadow of York Minster, the very birthplace of the notorious plotter, Guy Fawkes.” They offer “classic British food in our AA rosette restaurant.”
They serve fantastic quality pub food, with large portions, at a reasonable price in a comfortable environment. They also have two fantastic beer gardens, complete with cosy throws, gas heaters and candlelight.

Lamb and Lion Inn
2-4 High Petergate, York YO1 7EH
The Lamb and Lion Inn resides within an ancient building oozing with character and charm. Their beer garden nestles next to the Bar Walls and is a great place to meet friends outdoors in the summer.
In the winter the Lamb and Lion has heated igloos in their beer garden, making it a year round destination!

The Judge’s Lodging has a great position in the centre of York, with a beautiful courtyard bar, where you can sit and watch the world go by. They have a large selection of comfortable seating at the front of the building, as well as more outside seating at the back and covered cabins too.
