Clifton Park Avenue, York, North Yorkshire, YO30 5PA 01904 640682
We’ve got everything you need from a country pub near you.
The Dormouse is built on the site of the old Clifton hospital, originally known as the North and East Riding Pauper Hospital when it opened in 1847. These days, we look after visitors and locals rather than patients and instead of a hospital, we offer friendly hospitality and delicious food and drink, creating the ideal setting in which to relax and unwind.
Our menus are full of hearty favourites and country pub classics, including our steak & mushroom pie and beer-battered fish and chips. Why not try some of our new seasonal dishes like Asparagus & ricotta ravioli or Roasted Salmon with vine tomatoes & pesto.
We look forward to welcoming you, and we’ll ready with a well-stocked bar, including cask ales, lager, fine wines, British gin and soft drinks to suit every taste — which will taste all the better when enjoyed in our beautiful and picturesque gardens.
There’s always a great reason to visit The Dormouse.
