A beautifully presented pub a short walk up Castlegate from Clifford’s tower. Winner of Visit York’s award for best pub or bar in 2015, The Blue Boar is unfortunately all too easy to miss due to its side street location. The cellar downstairs (today complete with comfy sofas) is supposedly where Dirk Turpin’s body was laid out after he was executed. Excellent beer, good pub grub, plenty going on of an evening and a downstairs basement for live music and other events – what more do you want?
