York QOTW bash

We're QOTW, we're having a bash, and it's in York. What more needs to be said?

UPDATE: I've finally settled on a venue - the Ackhorne in St. Martins Lane. It's close to the main bus-station and close-ish to the train-station. Beware: There's another pub in York called the Ackhorne as well but that's slightly further out.

One place I thought would be a possibile venue was the Judges Cellar Bar. It's a cosy place (it was the last time I viited which was ages ago, but then again, it was part of the Judges' Lodgings Hotel), but our bashes are beginning to have a track-record for becoming a bit rowdy so I'm not sure if this venue would work. Know of a few other possible places near-ish the centre/train and bus stations.

What about the train/bus station itself?

Sounds like a good place for a Bash.

The train station bar

is actually quite cosy. Perhaps that could be a possibility.

There's also plenty of pubs round the bus-station.

(, Wed 25 Jun 2008, 13:10, Reply)
Another possible venue

The King's arms.

Located right in the centre (but not as close to the train-station). Also located near many other pubs and also on the bank of a river, so it may be prone to flooding.

What about...

The Lowther as the initial venue? It's central, thoiugh slightly off the beaten track, is very close to a clutch of other pubs and is sizeable. Studenty though, but there's a jukebox.

OK with you?

The Lowther. Decent size. Cheap beer. Jukey. Central.

Not my local, but a good meeting point. Could go into town for VJs, Judges Lodging and Evil Eye via the Stone Roses.

Here's an idea.

Just thought we could try something different for a change.

Usually, we spend the entire time in the pub and after 9:30 or so, end up forgetting half of what happened unless it was something pretty intense. So here's an idea.

As York is a nice city with a good vibe, we could meet up somewhere and spend some time just wandering around the city in the afternoon. One of the things York is famous for is it's tea-rooms, so around 4:30-ish, we could head off for some tea and cakes. Around 6-ish, we head off to a pub (venue to be decided).

And then, here's the interesting bit. One of York's best kept secrets is a Chinese restauraunt called The Willow. The Chinese Reaustauraunt s just a front. After 11pm-ish, it turns into a disco. It's hard to describe unless you've been there before, bit IMO, t's bloody fantastic! They play all soerts of songs from the 50s to the present day that just make you want to get up and dance! This goes on until 2am, and the bar stays open until 1:30am (IIRC).

Let me know what you think.

(, Wed 17 Dec 2008, 9:20, Reply)

I'd rather just pub it.

Hi folks,

Well, I may not be able to make it now, but still willing to stick my oar in. It all depends what you're after - a stroll around the town can be nice (unless you need to use the bank and it's lunchtime), but if you're less of the culture vulture and more of the pure vulture, why not try the York Brewery? Their beers are bloody good - Centurian's Ghost is far too strong to be that drinkable and Yorkshire Terrier is a good glugger. Plenty of others to try if you have the time/inclination and you can even buy four pint kegs for the train home in the morning. Take a look: www.yorkbrew.demon.co.uk/social.html
If you don't want to prove that b3ta can organise etc. etc. the brewery also have several pubs round the town and you could crawl round them (I'm not on commission btw, just a fan). I've not tried the Willow so won't comment on that. If it's tea you're after, you could go to Betty's www.bettys.co.uk/cafe.asp?storyid=%7BA35FB337-BDF8-472F-B64F-4B993A62516A%7D
Nice food and the waitresses wear frilly aprons.

Anyway, I'll have to see nearer the time.

I live in York

And I can confirm that the Willow, whilst undeniably compelling, is actually terrible. Their food is dreadful too. It's good for cheap, late drinking but a night in there and I'd be eating my own teeth.

I have a couple of couches in my lounge. Could perhaps put someone up for the night.

I can also advise re. pubs & bars as long as people let me know what their preferences are.

Gaz me and I'll draw up some plans.

I could do this

Depends on the cost. I'm of the 'cheap and cheerful' accommodation school and I'd happily sleep on a park bench if it was warm enough.

I'm thinking about hitch-hiking up from Buckinghamshire - it's a trek but a relatively easy one. Anyone going up the M1 could help me out immensely :)

York has litterally

tons of nice little B&Bs. They may be a bit far from the city center, but anywhere on the South Bank is quite good.

(, Thu 1 Jan 2009, 23:35, Reply)
I contracted in York for 6 months

Stayed in a Pub B&B about 2 miles out from the city centre (I drove). It wasn't very expensive and there were loads on the road out of town.

There was a pub with Michelin stars or something (at least an insane menu of haute cuisine) that I ate in often in the town centre. The Golden Fleece I think it was.

(, Tue 6 Jan 2009, 18:30, Reply)
There are plenty of cheap B&Bs

but most of them are about half an hour's walking-distance from the centre. If you do leave the accommodation to the last minute, the tourist-information at the train-station should sort you out with something.

I just looked up some youth hostels but the two closest to the centre have closed down.

My summing up of York

having lived there for four years.

Best bar: Evil Eye cafe. Really well made cocktails, great atmosphere, amazing building etc

Best restaurant: Fiesta Mehicana: Mexican place which does great authentic food and it has a wall of tequila. I've been to lots of Mexican places up North, and this is easily the best.

Best pub (although there are lots): Handsome Cab: Sam Smith's real old time pub. Cheap, very cosy, very friendly.

Another nice thing about York is the lack of Wetherspoon's in the city walls.

Let's try this again

My last idea hasn't gone down with much enthusiasm. I'm not that bothered about not going to the tea-rooms, but was hoping we'd get to sample the delights of the Willow and it's amazing disco. It's hard to describe - I guess you have to have been there to experience it.

As for the venue. I've not been pubbing in York for some time, so I'll let the natives and Che Grimsdale suggest something. Some of the suggestions seem familiar to me. To start off, a venue where there's no background music would be ideal (most of the venues of the London bashes have satisfied this criterion). Also, it would be nice if the pub served food as well (most of the venues of the London bashes failed to satisfy this criterion). Then, once we get drunk enough to forget most of the conversation, we could move on to somewhere more intense - that is, somewhere where we can get up and dance (I seem to remember this happening at the Manchester bash). Perhaps we could even turn it into a Karaoke bash. So we basically just need to suggest a venue that everyone gravitates towards and pick that.

So let's have a show of hands.

Who wants an early start?

Who just wants to stay in the same place all night?

Who wants to continue drinking past 11pm?

Who else wants to brave the Willow despite what others have said.

Once I've gathered enough votes, I'll pick a venue (or a venue will be picked for me if enough people flock to someone else's suggestion).

As for an early arrival, my train gets in at 13:56, but was thinking of spending some time just wandering around the city until it gets dark (or at least dropping my stuff off at wherever I'll be staying). So would any other early arrivals want to join me for a wander-round or do you all just want to head off straight to the pub?


Come to think of it, having done a bit of research, the Ackhorne seems to be a good venue. I've been there myself a few times back in the day, and having read the reviews, it seems like a suitable venue. It's away from the crowds, is centrally located and close-ish to the train-station and main bus-station, and also stays open past 11:30 in case we go for the one-venue solution.

So if enough people vote for The Ackhorne, I'll pick that for the venue.

(, Wed 14 Jan 2009, 23:54, Reply)
The Ackhorne gets a good write up.

It's also 0.2 miles from my hotel, according to Google maps. As a lazy sod, I approve.

(, Thu 15 Jan 2009, 6:18, Reply)

(, Thu 15 Jan 2009, 9:31, Reply)

is fine by me. It's quite tucked away though, so make sure a map is available for those who aren't familiar with York's nooks and crannies. You need to look out for the crannies.

Do b3tards eat? No one has mentioned food yet, apart from the Willow, which is awful, to be fair.
Booking a big table at Fiesta is always a laugh, but it is quite pricey and you have to get in early.
York also has a decent amount of curry houses. My favourite was always Lal Quila, but it is a little out of the way.

(, Thu 15 Jan 2009, 11:00, Reply)
I eat

I live in York- I'll be out and about from 12ish. I suggest VJs (for their nachos), Dusk (for their burgers) or even Oscar's (for the mahoosive helpings) for food. Depending on people's cultural persuasions we can do a whistle stop tour of the York hostelries to satisfy all tastes before deciding on a late venue to see in the morning. Dusk stays open until about 3 these days and the Willow (for Spakka) is just around the corner should you find the need to dance to a soundtrack of Now That's What I Call Music compilations with gay men doing over the top expressive dancing.

I know I've been a few times.

In all my years at York

I never went to VJs and I can't quite figure out why. I don't remember Dusk, but I've looked it up and it appears to be a bit poncy.
I can't believe I haven't mentioned Oscar's! It was an institution for us when we lived there! I was a veggie at the time, and I loved their sunshine platter. I disagree with how they do burgers though, they don't melt the cheese.

Is not poncy these days. Started out like that, now it's a bit grubby and has regular live music/ DJs on in the top room. I'm playing there on Feb 13th.

What time are most people arriving? There's a few making a day of it, and my train arrives at 13:56. The long-term weather-forecast indicates rain, so I'll just dump my stuff off at wherever I'm staying and head off straight to the pub.

And we've got to go to the dreaded Ikea to purchase a bed.

Oh joy.

Have a cracking time - we need to organise a York bash later in the year - I like York and haven't been up there in ages.

Another York bash

If we're having another York bash, the spring (early may) or summer (late July/August) would be a good time for one as the nice weather makes it very pleasant (the bit in between is usually filled with crap weather). I originally chose this date for the bash because it was roughly halfway between the other two bashes that were on the calendar at the time.

Also, if doing it after the university breaks up for the summer, some of the pubs near the university can be very pleasant when not overcrowded with students. Of course, if we can't wait for those studious little buggers to leave, we could always sneak into the halls of residence and place degree-certificates under their doors so that they think they've graduated and fuck off.

So now that a lot of the early starters have pulled out?

What time are people arriving? I expect to arrive at 3pm.
