The Fox at Holgate

After years of poor management and an acute lack of investment The Fox at Holgate has finally had the make over it so desperately needed and is once more set to become the community hub in the York suburb once famous for it's carriageworks.

With Punch Taverns looking for a partner to invest in a comprehensive overhaul, it was Ossett Brewery who stepped up to bring it's distinct style to the pub whilst sympathetically restoring this magnificent gem.

The Fox boasts York's largest beer garden in a surprisingly leafy setting for such a built-up area and  has the distinction of being a blue-plaqued heritage inn, making it a must-visit for anyone seeking out the city's finest watering holes.

The usual Ossett nod to local history can be found on the walls whilst the bar is home to ten handpumps split between the brewery's output, Tetley's and guests. 

Fabulous weather for the opening weekend saw residents and beer tourists turn out in force to get the latest chapter in this remarkable inn's history off to a flying start.
