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. For a truly fabulous occasion 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.
