The Fox


Set in the Holgate district of York lies The Fox, a pub whose history is inextricably linked to the golden age of rail. In the spring of 2014, after years of neglect, the distinct Ossett Brewery style was applied, sympathetically restoring this magnificent gem.

The traditional inn boasts York's largest beer garden and is a must-visit for anyone seeking out the city's finest watering holes. As well as offering a fine selection of high-quality real ale and drinks, The Fox works in collaboration with food vendor, Tuk n Dough to serve up delicious stone baked pizza available to eat in and for takeaway. There is also room for four legged friends!
