Brigantes Bar and Brasserie, York

You know you're onto a winner when the first thing you see on the door is a sign saying that hen/stag parties are not admitted - deserves 10/10 just for that. Even better is the looks on the faces of the knuckleheaded yahoos who discover that the place doesn't serve Becks or similar fizzy bottled crap. They even have a beer menu ... truly heaven on earth.

What the place *does* serve is a fantastic range of German and Belgian beers along with a good selection of hand-pulled real ales. No smoking throughout (although that doesn't really matter now) but clean, civilised and quiet, in stark contrast to the other hell-holes on Micklegate.

Serves food which is apparently very good - haven't tried it myself as I was rather preoccupied with the beers. Neither York or (especially) Micklegate deserve an establishment like this, but it truly deserves to succeed and I hope it does.

Fibbers, York

Fibbers is a shadow of its former self - I can remember, not so long ago, that there were actually decent bands there (I remember seeing Ozric Tentacles just after I moved to York - awesome!). Claims to be York's leading music venue are well wide of the mark too.

If you want live music, then head to either Certificate 18 on Gillygate (for the metal/goth crowd) or the Junction on Leeman Road. Or Leeds. If you want decent beer, just about anywhere else in York will do.

Reflex, York

Don't. Just don't.
Usually full of the evolutionary pondscum who inhabit the establishments further up Micklegate, and not helped at all by door staff with negative IQs.
