More Information

Rare City Garden Space – Refurbishment Planned

Gibsons is a high street circuit bar in the centre of historical York, a highly popular tourist destination in North Yorkshire.
The pub is perfectly located in the heart of the city beside the city walls and is one of the first bars at the top of Micklegate ensuring it benefits from excellent footfall.

The planned refurbishment by Star Pubs and Bars will see Gibsons transformed into a stylish premium pub with the ability to appeal to a varied customer base, including tourists, locals, and students and further boost the potential of the pub.

Trading Area & Facilities

Internally, Gibsons is a comfortable, rustic bar with a rock music-themed decor. The pub is made up of an open plan main trading area featuring the bar and small side rooms leading off from the main area.

The planned refurbishment will see a breadth of textures internally, exposed brickwork, attractive seating and lighting and a brighter bar with an improved back bar focused on a premium offer with more an equal drink and food split.
External works will highlight the size and maximise the use of hidden courtyard space, a rarity on the York high-street. A mixed clientele will be attracted by the stylish finish from tourists, locals, and student visitors.
