22 Yards Wine Bar & Merchants

A relaxing wine bar in the shadow of York Minster.

Open daily from 12 noon to 11pm (Monday from 5pm)

22 Yards is an independently owned wine bar & merchants in the heart of the city, directly opposite York Minster. Our passion for delicious wine & ingredients means every single bottle & dish has been carefully selected for its quality. The 22 ethos is simple; we want customers to relax & enjoy great wines with zero wine snobbery in stylish, cosy surroundings, whilst grazing on delicious food.

The name ‘22 Yards’? The idea for the venue was conceived in a chance meeting over drinks at a local cricket match. When viewing the property, we discovered that the length of the customer area is circa 22 yards (the length of a cricket pitch) and so ‘22 Yards’ was born.

“The Wines - our insatiable curiosity and thirst for wine means we update our list regularly. The wine-by-the-glass offering rotates on a constant basis; all available to drink-in or take-away for those that don’t want to leave empty-handed. The Food - We believe in serving simple, beautiful food. This is why we have created a menu of cheese, charcuterie and wine-friendly seasonal small plates and sharing boards, inspired by ingredients sourced from producers we trust and love.”
