About us

Welcome to The Punch Bowl
You will find The Punch Bowl in Stonegate York within a short stroll of York Minster, Blake Street and St Helens Square - however you won't find another like it.

Step in to discover a traditional pub of unique character, revered for its eclectic range of real ales and its quality pub food, which are served, as they should be, with a generous measure of famous British hospitality.

A fascinating past
Said to be haunted, The Punch Bowl has been a pub for over four centuries, or perhaps we should say pubs, as we have suffered two major fires. We have a historical connection with the Whig Party from the 17th Century. Punch was the preferred drink of the Whigs, whilst the Tories liked their claret. Any pub displaying a punch bowl sign was therefore declaring its political allegiance.

The best restaurant in Stonegate York?
If you're in search of a pub that offers the very best pub food in Stonegate York then look no further than The Punch Bowl. Our dining rooms are a destination in their own right offering restaurant style service and a perfect setting for formal and relaxed dining.
