Kings Arms: "A great pub at the river" York Nightlife Tip by sabsi

by sabsi

Directly at the river there's this lovely pub - with outdoor seeting even (Something rather unusual in England). We had a little break and a pint in the sun here on our walk through York. I could have stayed for ages watching the boats on the river and enjoying the sunshine and the Lager Shandy. But as usual we were in a hurry ;-)

Inside there's a plaque detailing the water levels of the previous floods. Obviously this pub gets flooded all the time. I liked the sign on a litter box in the toilet best actually. It said "If used as instructed this unit presents no risk to health". Luckily it didn't say "May contain nuts" as well ;-)

Dress Code: When the river is flooded I'd wear Wellies ;-)
