The mains were nice but the it's the puddings where the magic really was.
I have to admit with each and every dish I was left wanting more, reluctantly handing half over to my husband. Not usually adverse to sharing, I put this down to the quality of the dishes offered up.
From personal experience I think the trick to the ale trail is planning your route - don't leave too much walking distance between stops at the end and make sure you visit the 'posher' places towards the start!
For mains we tried the veggie burger which was sweet potato and red pepper patty, piled high with our bruschetta mix of avocado and tomato, topped with melted Emmental cheese.
Always keen to try the newest eateries York has to offer, we decided to give York's new Castlegate restaurant 'Source' a go.
After ordering our meals the server asked "and would you like cheese on all your chips?" Magic 😉
