The Pubs of York

If you are ever visiting York, these are a few of our favorite places from the year. It is hard to believe it has been a year!

The Plough in Fulford= wonderful B&B with a cat and great atmosphere. We stayed 4 nights and the staff was amazing.

The Royal Oak = Quiet on a week night. Very calm atmosphere and great hangout.

The Attic = Coffee bar by day, Gin bar by night. Wonderful Kraken Rum! and excellent Arran Irish Cream.

The Lion and Lamb = Very small. quaint, but too full for my taste and hard to visit. Very good rum and coke.

Suttlers = Adorable Gin bar with great individual rooms. Best atmosphere.

Charles XII in Heslington = Excellent prices, fun Monday night hangout. Good food!

The Hole in the Wall = very cute and cozy with its fireplaces and very good cider 🙂

The Eagle and Child = This is a new pub here. It is based in Leeds but they just opened one here. The inside is charming and it is a really nice quiet weekday pub. They have Kraken Rum so I really like it! This is the pub we frequented the most. It turned into our fave!

The Cross Keys= This is the pub that is directly behind the Minster and St Michael le Belfrey, so after a service it is a nice place to grab a pint. Cozy fires and great gin.

The Old White Swan= Great Sunday Roast in a lovely Beer Garden!

The Duke of York= Right off of Kings Square, excellent ciders always on tap!

The Golden Fleece= This is the oldest pub in York. It is crooked becasue it was built without a foundation and so much fun. The food there is some of the best pub grub in York.



Hog Creek Farm Goat Milk Soap Review

This is my first review ever! I just really felt like I needed to review this amazing soap. It is kind of a miracle soap.

John is allergic to any smell ever, especially soap. Our laundry soap has to be fragrance free and he can only really use Johnson & Johnson Baby Shampoo for bathing. Bars of soap never work. Dove soap even bothers his nose… Basically smells are bad.

A friend gifted us a delicious smelling Orange Vanilla Goat Milk Soap from Hog Creek Farm. They are based in Texas right near where I grew up.

I was so excited, because I love smells and lavish soaps. 😀

John smelled the soap. The soap didn’t irritate anything. After using it for the past two weeks he isn’t allergic and is just so happy that he can use a bar of soap! When we get back to the states this will be our soap.

I just cannot believe it.

This soap is a miracle soap. Since it is Summer time we have already tried it out on sunburns and is is wonderfully soothing. Please check out Hog Creek Farm Goat Milk Soap.

Happy Summer!
