Tank and Paddle drops anchor in York

The Tank and Paddle is the latest addition on the York pub scene, with its doors opening today (Friday 28th June).

A former merchant’s building in the heart of York city centre, the site has undergone a £400,000 investment and will soon become the go-to destination for beer, premium gins and top-quality food.  

The venue’s transformation has retained its industrial charm, with reclaimed brickwork and furniture added to create a cool, vintage style throughout. A new balcony has also been refurbished, providing the perfect spot to enjoy a tipple or two in the summer sun.

The drinks menu will showcase regional brews such as Brew York and Ilkley Pale, trendy craft beers, cask ales such as Black Sheep and Roosters and be the first up north to feature big tanks of Meantime Brewery Fresh.

It won’t just be the ales that put the Tank and Paddle on the map though, as the pub will also offer a wide range of gins that include regional favourites such as Yorkshire Dales Distillery gin or classic blends like Slingsby. Customers will also have the opportunity to experience gin masterclasses, learning all there is to know about the spirit, how to select the right garnishes and how to recreate their favourite tipples. 

The pub’s sourdough pizzas will also be a highlight – with a variety of different choices to tempt customers, from Pepperoni and BBQ Chicken Feast, as well as more unusual flavours, including Sweet Chilli Duck and Smoky Sloppy Joe. Burgers and pub classics will also excite the taste buds, with sharing plates such as Nachos and Rib and Wing platters available for friends to tuck in tapas-style.  

Chris Smith, General Manager of the Tank and Paddle, commented: “This is my 18th year as part of the Stonegate team and the team and I are looking forward to welcoming customers to the venue. The pub will help to reconnect the people of York and offer a great destination for an after-work drink or get together with friends or family. We’ve also introduced Sky to make sure we can offer a variety of sports viewing opportunities alongside regular offers that include a monthly quiz and fizzy Fridays.”
