Nightlife in Thirsk
There are plenty of town-centre pubs in Thirsk, with one of our favourites being The Frankland Arms off Sutton Road near the Cod Beck. Dating back to the 1700s, the pub has a large beer garden with a small children’s play area, a pool table and darts board, live sport, regular DJ and live music nights and an excellent range of drinks including cask ales, boutique gins, cocktails, fine wines and more.
Head over the Cod Beck towards the centre of Thirsk and you’ll find Little Three, a real beer-lovers pub stocked with some of the best local brews. The welcoming pub also has a strong range of spirits including gin, rum and whisky plus regular food and drink deals.
Heading out of Thirsk, there are plenty of quality rural pubs perfect after a countryside walk or for a spot of Sunday lunch.
The Kings Arms in Sandhutton is a short drive from our Thirsk Hotel and a fantastic venue dating back to the 1800s. Reopened in 2006 after an extensive refurbishment, the large, friendly pub has quickly become a favourite for locals and tourists alike thanks to its excellent food, wide range of drinks and smart but cosy interior.
Slightly further out of Thirsk is The Buck Inn in Maundy, another historic pub that dates back to the 18th century. The dog-friendly pub is a great stop off for cyclists and walkers with a fine gastropub menu (check the specials or their burger menu) and a wide range of local cask ales and wines.
Rounding out our selection is The Angel at Topcliffe. You can either work your way through their selection of wine and beer in the wood-lined bar, head outdoors to the garden and log-burner or try your hand in the sports room and pool table (including free pool every Tuesday night). A really stylish pub, it’s well worth the five-minute drive from our Thirsk Hotel if only for the happy hour and daily food deals.
