Melton’s Too is now Walmgate Ale House and Bistro

Melton’s Too restaurant has rebranded and is now Walmgate Ale House and Bistro.
The new name reflects the changes that have been made in the 17th century building on Walmgate, which include a refurbished bar area and bathrooms and a redecorated Bistro and Loft.

25 Walmgate was previously owned by Ellerker’s who ran a Rope makers and Saddler. The newly decorated interior of Walmgate Ale House incorporates the history of the building using ropes, saddles and old photographs to create a lovely rustic bar and snug downstairs. The downstairs bar now has even more local food and drink on offer. This includes Yorkshire Ales and homemade bar snacks such as Pork Pies and Sausage Rolls.

The Bistro also has a new menu, which focuses on using quality local ingredients. There is something for everyone to enjoy, from Steak to handmade Ravioli. The Bistro will also serve brunch each weekend and Sunday Lunch every Sunday from 12pm.

The redesigned Loft is a perfect place for large parties, and our party menus offers a great selection for guests to choose from. Bookings are now being taken for Christmas Parties! Our Loft can seat up to 50 guests and our party menus start at £23 per head for a three course meal.

Walmgate Ale House and Bistro prides itself on using locally sourced and made produce and seeks to promote small scale producers in the York area. The Ale House and Bistro is still owned and run by the Hjort family, who have run restaurants in York since 1990. Walmgate Ale House and Bistro originally opened, as Melton’s Too, on Walmgate in 2001 and has gone from strength to strength ever since.
