Dating back to the 17th century, The Punch Bowl York is an atmospheric, historic pub. Today, its dark wood interior and cask ale selection draws people in from all over the city.

With Nicholson’s pubs first established in 1873, the fleet has become synonymous with warm hospitality, hearty pub food and a speciality stock of ales. Constantly featuring recipes are bolstered by a seasonally changing range of specials on the Nicholson’s menu, with favourites including home-breaded chicken Kiev, or a sharing cottage pie. Also enjoy old-school desserts and nourishing breakfasts.

At the Nicholson’s bar, expect to find 25 guest ales changing with the seasons, a resident cask master, and carefully matched ale and food pairing suggestions. Compiled with equal care, the The Punch Bowl drinks list features easy drinking wines, artisan soft drinks and classic cocktail mixes.

Showcasing famous British pub tradition, The Punch Bowl is a comfy hideaway, and sits 10 minutes' walk from York Rail Station.

    Historic setting. We didn't have a starter. I had the ham hock main course. My wife had the fish and chips. Bit concerned the meal came in circa 7 mins. Suggest meals had not been cooked from fresh. Having said that both meals were fine.

    We had booked a table for 19.00, we arrived early but they were more than happy to accommodate us. We ordered our drinks, my husband ordered a real ale while my daughter and I had pepsi's. There were three of us, two had steaks the third had fish and chips. One steak was well done (perfectly cooked, the other medium rare, it was more rare than medium rare. Overall the food was ok. The pub was starting to get quite noisy just before we left.
