One of York’s most well-known pubs has reopened – and revealed its new look.
Museum Street Tavern is now open after a refurb inside and out.
Located on Museum Street, the pub was known as Thomas’s for most of the preceding 162 years before it closed last year.
Owner Richard Martin, an independent operator, had taken on the tenancy from the prior owners Stonegate Pubs, and is keen to serve up “good old-fashioned hospitality.”
The pub has had an interior and exterior makeover, with fresh paint on the outside and inside there’s new furniture and decor. The building is 18th century and Grade II listed so it’s kept its historic charm.
With a soft launch opening, the Museum Street Tavern intends to build up their menu week by week.
The pub is serving bar snacks and lunch & dinner Tuesday to Saturday & lunch on Sundays.
On the snacks menu, there’s roasted brazil nuts (£3.50), olives (£4), salami (£6), and prosciutto (£6), as well as larger snacks like heritage tomatoes and burrata (£9), corn on the cob with chilli and paprika butter (£4.50), baba ganoush with flatbread (£7.50), and a cheeseboard of manchego, Yorkshire blue and brie with black cherry chutney and sourdough (£12).
There’s plenty of drinks on offer too with wines, draught beers, spirits, cocktails, and more.
The Museum Street Tavern are currently hiring for chef de partie, kitchen porter, and front of house positions. To apply, send CV’s and covering letters to [email protected].
