York: Let's eat burnt bread with fillings!
posted June 12, 2018 8:29 AM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Sun June 24 at 1:00 PM, The Maltings Free House
Tanner's Moat, York YO1 6HU, UK (Map & Directions)
ETA: Since the weather is slated to be gorgeous we will try to get a table outdoors. I will likely be easy to spot as I have bright red and yellow hair and a loud American accent. I may try to make a sign. We will be in York and would love to meet up with other MeFites as we take a break from visiting everything FPP-worthy in town! We've chosen The Maltings Free House because it's recommended in the Good Pub Guide. If we should view this as the Not So Good Pub Guide please let us know now. It's very close to the train station and offers charming food such as "burnt bread with various fillings" as well as an array of beers, whiskeys and fruit wines (and I'm assuming some non-alcoholic beverages as well).

Fun fact: there are no bad pubs in York. I will try to come!

Maybe, but will probably have a well-behaved toddler tagging along?
Totally understand if that doesn't work...

A toddler is just fine with us! Let's induct the next generation of MeFites!

Oh my goodness, I just saw this now. Will check with the spouse and see if we can make it; we are always game for York!

Putting myself as a maybe in there as I'll be travelling from Bath to Glasgow on that Sunday, so maybe I could route myself that way. It depends if I can fiddle the train tickets to make it work.

Ok, we are in. Spouse was able to schedule it. See you all then!

Hooray! It will be great to meet all of you! Sorry you can't make it, iamkimiam. Ambrosen, fiddle those tickets! (Or maybe you can come to the Meetup we are having in Aberdeen?)

I'm moving to York only 4 days afterwards. Please have a great time and then do another soon!

Unfortunately I'm in Lisbon on a last minute break, will do another time though, I'm in Wakefield so Leeds/York are pretty easy, and the toddler is normally pretty hilarious.

Hi foleypt, we're just here for a week I'm afraid. But hopefully someone will take up the mantle after we're gone!

Glad you had a lovely time.

I took a plane to Glasgow in the end. And am currently with an ETA back home in Bath of about 1 a.m. after 2 hours' delay at Carlisle.
