Visit historic Castlegate and discover York’s local, independent wine bar. Relish a glass of fine wine, warm your soul with a dram of whisky or sample a range of locally sourced beer. Or for a truly fabulous occasion, throw on that vintage gown and try one of our signature cocktails or classic champagnes.

We know that you love to complement your drinks with great quality food. Unwind at a table as we walk you through our thoughtfully created food pairings. Choose from a selection of small plates and sharing boards or experience a touch of decadence with a sweet treat from the pudding bar. A destination for grown-ups, Pairings is the place for relaxed conversation with friends, family and lovers.
