About us

The pub stands a few feet from the medieval tower called Fishergate Postern, and is just around the corner from Fishergate Bar (or gateway).

Medieval York was the second largest and second most important city in England. The existing stone walls which surround it, and the bar gateways into the city, were built during this period. The Postern was built c1500, on the banks of the River Foss, which was then much wider and now passes behind this site.

The Postern Gate serves food from 7 am until 11 pm every day. Children are allowed on the premises until 9 pm  (last orders for food 8:30pm.) Breakfast is served until noon.

A wide range of craft beers, gins, and cocktails are available as well as hand-pulled real ale and a number of lagers and ciders.

Food and drink are served in the courtyard beer garden and the pub has an additional drinking-only beer garden along the river Foss. No children are are allowed in the riverside beer garden.
