If you enjoy cosying up in Thor’s Tipi during the winter months, we’ve got great news: Thor’s Tipi is back from July with a summer vibe! The bar celebrates Sol Ast, meaning ‘sun love’ in Old Norse, and you’ll find it in Dean’s Park behind York Minster. There’ll be two linked canvases, a large outdoor garden with terrace and an outdoor summer barbecue offering gourmet food for all tastes, including smaller portions for children (hooray!). The drinks menu promises the local draft ales, a special Minster Martini cocktail and the obligatory Pimms. There’ll even be sculptures from Yorkshire sculptor Michael Lyons to admire while you eat and drink. It’s all part of the new Heart of Yorkshire Festival at York Minster which will run all summer, and we can’t wait.
