Its full name—Whitelocks First City Luncheon Bar—gives a clue to this small bar's historic antecedents. Claiming to date back to 1715 and tucked away in a quiet alley off bustling Briggate, the narrow, atmospheric bar retains original features like beveled mirrors, thick wood beams, copper-topped tables, and mosaic tiles. It serves superior pub food with an emphasis on the local and seasonal, like pork terrine with pale-ale chutney or roast topside of local beef. Beers
from local microbreweries are featured, and the prices are friendly.
