A nice enough two storey bar, if a little on the bland side interior wise considering the part of York it’s in. It’s not the prettiest of buildings anyway though so fair enough. Eight real ales as detailed below and not cheap. The huge glass windows are completely opened on a nice day creating more of a continental bar atmosphere. It’s fine and obviously a good spot to sample good ale in the Shambles area.

An impressive, newish bar on York market square. Three storeys, with smart seating around the walls on the ground floor, a couple of long tables and some standard dining tables on the first floor and a couple of booths on the top floor along with the toilets and the "cellar". We visited twice over our 2 days in York and went upstairs both times. We must be much younger than OB. :-)) A good selection of ales, but not cheap, as may be expected as Thornbridge & Pivovar aren't exactly renowned for being cheap. In fact the Malbec was downright expensive. Both the pints I had were in excellent nick. I guess we'll be visiting this one again and again.

Joint venture between Thornbridge and Pivovar (of York Tap fame.) Opened 14th December 2018.
The modern grey exterior with big windows belies a largely traditional interior with lots of dark wood, Britannia tables and booth/bench seating. The benches and sofas are finished in a light brown leather while the booths down one side are in a dark brown. Central U shaped counter with eight pulls mostly from Thornbridge as this is a collaboration between them and Pivovar, who run the nearby Pivni. As expected with this pedigree beer quality is excellent. There’s a selection of more interesting kegs on two t-bars and a horseshoe. More seating,upstairs on two floors, but I didn’t explore on this visit, there will definitely be more visits from me; it looked like the young folks went upstairs while the over-forties remained downstairs.
