  The Kings Arms
by Helga67

It's the best (and one of the only) pubs in York for drinking outside, but don't forget to have a look inside. You will notice some peculiar things.

The pub floods at least 2 or 3 times every year, and if it's particularly high the level is marked on a wooden post just inside the door. Because it floods so often, it is designed to withstand the flooding (sturdy wooden benches, electrical sockets high up the wall instead of at ground, stone floors, etc.).

Address: Kings Staith
Directions: Near the river not far from the Ouse Bridge.
Theme: Eating and Drinking

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
