Time for a pint.
Old White Swan, York
OK, first things first, you must know that pretty much every pub in York is SO GOOD. Special shoutouts go to the House of the Trembling Madness, the Golden Fleece and the Snickleway Inn (still my favourite pub name). But the Old White Swan will always hold a special place in my heart, mainly because when I lived in York I spent so many afternoons nursing a hangover there with a roast. It's cosy, it has a great selection of ales, and the food is stellar – trust me, a meal there will make you feel alive again.
