Why we love York
York is a historic cathedral city in between the river Ouse and the river Foss, its remarkable history and heritage make it a popular tourist destination. York is really popular with families, with places nearby to visit like the Shambles, Castle Museum, Yorkshire Museum, Dungeons, Chocolate Story and the Jorvik (York’s Viking name…!) Viking Centre. For other breaks, York also has the world-renowned York racecourse and a vibrant night life where there’s always something to do.
Wherever you’re going to spend your time in York, make sure to relax and refuel with us at the Millfield Beefeater. We’ve got you covered for big family breakfasts, relaxing romantic lunches and delicious dinners.
The Millfield Beefeater is in a convenient spot for exploring the city, we’re right next to the river Ouse and in between two park and ride bus services with easy access to York City Centre. We’re just off the outer ring of the A1237 to York, so whether you’re arriving by car or public transport, we’re a great base for any trip to York.
Park and ride buses are about a 20-minute drive away from York City Centre and we can also arrange taxis and other transport options at our reception area. Just let us know and we’ll be happy to help!
We’re steak specialists and our steaks sell well for a reason! Our classic 10oz ribeye steaks are one of our most tender cuts and, like all our steaks, they’re aged for a minimum of 30 days, grilled to perfection, packed with flavour and served with chunky triple cooked chips, crispy flat mushroom, juicy grilled tomatoes and peppercorn sauce.
Our head chef, Daniel, recommends having our steaks medium-rare for the marbling effect to give the most flavour. But if that’s not your favourite, don’t worry – we’ll always serve your steaks exactly how you want them.
Our Sunday lunches always hit the spot. With our Sunday roasts you can choose from our specialty roast sirloin of beef, rump of lamb, half-roast chicken or butternut squash & ale pie, served with all the trimmings and our signature red wine gravy. You also get unlimited roast potatoes and other delicious extras.
It’s got to be the Premier Inn Breakfast, which we serve at the Millfield Beefeater. An unlimited selection of the best of an English breakfast. That’s bacon, eggs cooked just how you like them, hash browns, black pudding, toast and plenty more with free tea and coffee.
We’re totally family friendly and we can make your next meal out hassle-free. Ours kids’ menu is full of dishes your children will love and our team are great with kids. Best of all, up to two kids can eat breakfast for free when an adult orders a Premier Inn Breakfast!
