|About The Phoenix Inn|
Welcome to The Phoenix, an unspoilt, independently-run, little pub in the historic City of York. Here you can relax and enjoy a traditional pub atmosphere without the annoyance of gaming machines, televisions, juke boxes or mobile phones.
In the winter you can sit peacefully in the front bar reading a newspaper by the log fire with only the muted conversation of fellow customers and the ticking of the clock to disturb you. In summer you can take advantage of the attractive, paved beer garden, a suntrap looking onto the city walls.
Originally dating back to the late eighteenth century, the current internal character of the Phoenix Inn derives from a late nineteenth century refit - its front arrangement of public bar (originally the 'best smoke room'), side corridor with stand-up lobby, and top-glazed dividing screen, stemming from 1897 designs for John Smith's brewery by Tadcaster architects, Bromet and Thorman.
Adjacent to the Fishergate bar, The Phoenix Inn is the last surviving pub inside the city walls which served the old cattle market, held within Fishergate Bar until 1827. It may have taken its present name from the Phoenix Iron Foundry, which was situated behind Fishergate Postern. In the early part of the nineteenth century the pub was known as the Labour in Vain and later became the Phoenix, taking its name from the Phoenix iron smelting foundary which stood opposite the pub in the mid 1800’s.
The pub was bought by Tim & Val Everton in 2008 and following a year of smpathetic restoration, the pub re-opened in October 2009.†The Phoenix has become a haven for real ale and live jazz, having won numerous awards over the years for both. Whether walking the city’s walls or it’s pavements, you can be sure of a warm welcome at the Phoenix Inn.
