The Gillygate Pub
Characterful, traditional pub with restaurant and rooms.
The Gillygate Pub was first mentioned in the local newspaper as an establishment with a kitchen and ladies market room and had the advertising slogan of 'Fine stabling and well aired beds' It is now an award wining pub run by Irish born Brian Furey. The pub has a comfortable, relaxed charm and characterful décor including many unique and original pieces of artwork. Features such as their 'Whiskey Snug' and fireplace give the pub a very cosy and warm atmosphere.
The Gillygate has been included in 'The Guinness Book of Best Places to Drink Guinness in Britain' and has also been included in CAMRA's 'Good Beer Guide 2020'.
At the back of the pub is a beer garden where you can find various activities as theatre, comedy events such as the annual 'The Great Yorkshire Fringe' and Yorkshire's Open Conker Competition.
There are two pub quizzes a week, Speedquizzing on a Monday night and the traditional Jolly Good Quiz on a Wednesday night.
Fish and Forest set up their restaurant in July 2019 serving sustainable fish and local game... you have to try the Venison Burger! Food is served everyday from 12-4 5-9pm.
The pub also offers Bed and Breakfast with nine beautifully refurbished ensuite bedrooms to choose from.
