The quirky Mr P’s Curious Tavern offers a wide range of European specialities in a relaxed, informal and interesting setting. The location is an atmospheric (allegedly haunted) Grade II listed building, parts of which date back to the same era as The Shambles. Andrew Pern, AKA Mr P, Executive Chef/Director, is also the Chef/Owner of the Michelin-starred Star Inn at Harome.

There’s something for everyone on Mr P’s menu which encourages you to pick and mix from a selection of sharing platters including Spanish, and charcuterie and cheese. Small plates of gin and beetroot cured salmon or king scallops and pork belly are other options. Mains include dishes like corn-fed chicken breast, ravioli of smoked potato and egg yolk or pan-fired halibut.

For pudding there’s tempting affogato or rhubarb posset. Liquid refreshment at Mr P’s restaurant offers small, medium and large vessels of wine, craft ales, spirits and other beverages.

On Thursday evenings, Mr P’s acts as a showcase for local troubadours, adding live music to the mix. Located in the heart of the city, Mr P’s Curious Tavern is a 13-minute walk from York Rail Station.

    The live piano music was great and really suited the relaxed atmosphere of the bar area where we ate. Myself and my husband both had the chicken dish for our main course and it was delicious; especially the mushroom ketchup. The ‘yorkie bar’ dessert was great too.

    We had a meal on Saturday evening, the dining room upstairs was lovely, a quiet haven away from the hustle of the streets down below. It was lovely as a couple to have a nice large table and not to feel cramped whilst eating. The food was delicious, as was the wine we chose. A lovely relaxed atmosphere, and we were not rushed. The staff were all great.

    Good food, poor service. We were given three menus, it was not sure which one was on that day.

    A little bit disappointed, ordered steak, slightly overcooked for Medium/Rare and didn't seem to be rested. Worst of all, the stilton sauce came out as thin as water. Came to York specially to visit this place, as been to The Star at Harome and loved it. Lovely place, nice service and good wine, starters, and deserts. Massive shame about the mains. Seemed like it was rushed, but there was no need....

    Friday in half term at 2pm and we were the only diners - we need not have booked. The TDH menu wasn’t our cup of tea - choice of 2 things only. The starters were cauliflower soup or terrine only. We had a light bite of Welsh rarebit- nicely presented, gorgeous chutney but uninspiring rarebit which looked and tasted like standard cheese on toast. Pleasant & attentive waitress. All in all rather under whelming.
