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.

Thoroughly enjoyed both evenings dining here,with the choice of menu being varied enough to suit all of us. The Ham Hock was especially tasty and tender and the accompaniments just right, the same goes for the sea bass. Appreciated the choice of a small dessert and coffee. All appetites satisfied.

Love the open fires and the cosy lighting, quiet atmosphere with pleasant decor and staff. Reasonable menu, though the 'eton tidy' (dessert) was disappointing. There were strawberries and blackberries (?) mentioned, and they really were needed to offset the fatty blandness of it. There was only a suggestion of purée in it. Pretty expensive, too.
