Going Out In York

The Botanist York

Discover an array of refreshments to sip and savour; the finest local gins, world-famous beers & ales, including a home-brewed speciality, alongside an extensive range of botanical-infused cocktails. Enjoy food inspired by the deli, rotisserie and BBQ, with daily specials; all intriguingly presented in a horticultural fashion. Some arrive for the live music, some for the conversation; but at The Botanist, all can enjoy a wondrous occasion.  

Ambiente Tapas

Situated amongst thriving the independent shops on Fossgate, Ambiente delivers a unique take on Spanish tapas. Open daily, Ambiente caters for a quick bite, intimate meals and larger groups. Ambiente on Fossgate has a stylish, industrial feel and the weekday Tapas Rapido deal of 3 dishes for £11.95, available Monday to Friday between 12pm & 5pm, is the perfect way to get in the party spirit before an event.
