Paying tribute to the vintage British pub, The Dormouse in York serves traditional pub food in what was once a Victorian hospital. The grand hearth displays the classic brickwork, while the rustic ivy-covered walls and a charming orchard are attractive views from the al fresco beer garden.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Dormouse menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Dormouse ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

The Dormouse is only a 6-minute drive from York Train Station.

    Had a great dining experience here, nice decor, warm & welcoming inside as cold, damp and dark outside, had 3 course meal for 4 of us. All had fish starters which we all enjoyed, all had different main courses, where we all had empty plates when we finished, and all had dessert which were exceptionally good. Overall a really fantastic meal out which came to less than £30 each including a bottle of wine for the ladies and lager for the guys so good value too.

    Thanks for the opportunity to give feedback. We enjoyed sitting in the garden in beautiful sunshine. The food was good and would come again. However it was a Saturday lunch and very busy. We waited over an hour for our desserts and after enquiring we were on our feet ready to paying leave when a delightful lady came and said that she would enquire for us. Why it should take so long to produce desserts we cannot imagine except that staff were in very short supply. We hope that our next visit will see more staff on duty. We are told that catering staff generally in York are in short supply so there must be an incentive for them to work at the beautiful Dormouse, Clifton.

    Staff very nice but the service is poor they are rushed off their feet I have been at lunchtime as well a couple of months ago and experience was the same. Food was not as good as it has been in the past and by the time our coffee was served it was lukewarm.

    The ambience and menu choices was excellent. The quality of food was good but the parsnips were very dry. The service was slow, it appeared that on a busy day, Father's Day, there was not enough staff to provide a slick service
