AN Irish pub in York’s city centre has reopened following a two week refurbishment.

The investment in O’Neill’s, in Low Ousegate, has seen the creation of five new jobs as the venue launches both new food and dr ink menus.

Speaking about the refurbishment, general manager, Conor Seagrave, said: “It’s been fantastic seeing the pub come together over the last couple of weeks.

We can’t wait to welcome everyone back and see our guest’s reactions over the coming days. There have been some big changes and we’re confident they’ll go down well the people of York.

“Being ideally located, right in the heart of York city centre, our pub is the perfect spot to get together with friends, family or colleagues.

“Along with the improved menu we have our new range of craft beers and ciders. We’ve always been known for live sport and our brand-new HD Video Wall will really provide a wow factor when watching the big game.”

O’Neill’s is an Irish-themed pub chain with 49 outlets in the UK. The chain is operated by Mitchells & Butlers.
