Right at the bottom end of Micklegate you’ll find The Parish. Housed in a converted 11th century church that had formerly been an arts centre, The Parish has recently undergone a cosmetic facelift. The layout remains the same but there is a spangly new floor and other fixtures and fittings. A bit rowdy on a Friday and Saturday night – and after the races. I’m not sure Jesus would approve.
Update May 2017: No longer The Parish, now called Dohar or Duhar or something similar. We’ll give it a visit and see what it’s like.
