A city centre pub has just enjoyed a major makeover – and emerged complete with drunken mushrooms, craft beer and a huge HD telly for the big match.

O’Neill’s on Low Ousegate reopened a few days ago following an extensive two-week refurbishment.

Now the Irish pub has a new look, including neon signs and high and low seating.

The drinks menu and food offering have also been revamped. You can now tuck into stone-baked pizzas, 21 day aged steaks and ‘low and slow’ meat and rib options.

Or try the mix and match tapas including drunken mushrooms, pulled brisket croquettes and buttermilk boneless chicken pieces.

Craft beers and top tech

Naturally you can still drink Guinness at O’Neill’s. But the stout is now accompanied on the bar by a wide selection of craft beers, ales and ciders.

“It’s been fantastic seeing the pub come together over the last couple of weeks,” said general manager Conor Seagrave.

“We can’t wait to welcome everyone back and see our guest’s reactions over the coming days. There have been some big changes and we’re confident they’ll go down well the people of York.

“We’ve always been known for live sport and our brand-new HD video wall will really provide a wow factor when watching the big game.”

Five new jobs have been created at the pub as a result of the refurb.
