Winning Post, York


At the Winning Post we pride ourselves on our friendly welcoming atmosphere and have a selection of characterful areas where you can choose to relax with friends and family.

Our bar serves a good selection of cask & keg beers along with some great wines from around the world. Or if your tipple is a more adventurous gin, a single malt or a different rum, then take-a-look at our Drinks Menu for some inspiration. 

Our hearty homemade menu offers an array of delicious pub classics as well as seasonal specials taking influences from all around the world and showcasing them in a true British style.

For our outdoor spaces we have a Front beer garden where you can watch the world go by, or our sunken rear garden, a more intimate space. We have ample car and bike parking facilities; disabled access and offer a one level access to all areas indoors, along with a Disabled Toilet which combines with Baby Changing Facilities.
