Pizza Bar
We’re passionate about our food & drink at The Minster Inn and serve the best in craft beers and spirits, accompanied with hand stretched, stone baked pizza.
The setting is a traditional Edwardian Ale House with the original layout and many original features all sympathetically refurbished. You can also spend time in our popular Ale Yard with friends or find a quiet corner with a book and a pint.
We're situated on the ancient street of Marygate next to the Abbey Walls, a fantastic setting only 5 minutes walk from the Minster and a few hundred yards from the Museum Gardens and the river Ouse.

So pleased to have found this gem of a pub. Amazing pizza’s.... why offer more if you create perfection? Ale choice is excellent. Waiter service, due to Covid, was wonderful... nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be visiting again.... soon!

We had a very warm welcome and the staff very friendly. Service was good and the outside area was lovely and warm with plenty of shelter even if it were to rain. Food was really freshly cooked and we had a lovely evening.

We thought the set-up was superb at the Minster. Really cosy in the back and on a bit of a miserable day weather wise, you wouldn't even have known. Will definitely be heading back.

Cosy pub with a warm ambience, friendly, helpful and efficient staff who work together as a team to provide a fantastic customer experience. The pizzas are truly superb and they cater for vegans, vegetarians and gluten free diets, there is a good range of beers and wines etc. Great atmosphere - a firm favourite!

Always great food and great service which is why we are returning customers of the Minster inn. Would definitely recommend the pizza. Great value for money on a Sunday in particular as they do buy 1 get 1 free on pizza. Hope to return soon.

Great set up for the alfresco dining - covered and comfortable. Very prompt and efficient table service. Good range of pizza, real ales and wine. Everything reasonably priced and pizza toppings were plentiful on a thin base. Very enjoyable dining experience.

The staff of the Minster INn are very helpful and friendly and made us feel relaxed and comfortable. This doesn't happen everywhere!
The food we ordered was delicious and very quick. Please could I suggest a small dessert menu? Members of my party would have had one.
Thankyou Minster Inn , very enjoyable.
