Making its home at 54-56 Fossgate, you will now notice that the worn sign of the Army and Navy Store no longer resides on the shop corner, having opened its doors as Sutlers, York’s newest bar and restaurant.
Promising to reinvigorate costumers whilst taking them back with wartime treats and the best of local produce, Sutlers is an undiscovered frontier for foodies and ale drinkers alike. After a two year transformation the building has been injected with a new lease of life whilst keeping with the historic nature of the building. The owners have also transformed the previously overlooked upstairs floor, creating individual unique rooms perfect for those wishing to escape the crowds and relish in the cocktails and décor. Whilst downstairs the bar offers 60 bottled beers from across the world, 12 beers on tap and six cask ales as well as fresh coffee.
Taking its name from a Sutler, a 19th century civilian merchant who would sell provisions to troops, the theme has continued across their menu, packed full of fresh food and comforting British classics with high end execution. You can even fill your ration pack with provision from the likes of homemade scotch eggs, Welsh rarebit, bread and drippings, spam and fritters and the homage to our homeland: the national loaf.
Richard Beal, Owner of Sutlers stated, “We’ve worked long and hard to retain many original features and have lovingly restored the venue to create a relaxing yet quirky environment. Our goal is to welcome York citizens and visitors to a new experience and to surpass the boundaries of what they’re used to when it comes to the city’s bars and the food and drink on offer.”
So join the camaraderie and raise a pint to the newly enlisted recruit to Fossgate.Sutlers Website
