Ainsty Inns Takes on The Great North Run

Great North Run

This year Antony and Mark from Ainsty Inns are taking on the Great North Run to raise money for a well known local charity supporting and caring for children and their families going through the most difficult of times.

Breakfast is on the menu!

Duke of York breakfast

It’s been a fantastic four weeks since we opened our doors. A big thank you to all of our customers old and new who’ve made the first few weeks such an enjoyable time!

We’ve had such good feedback about our food that we’re now opening for breakfast on Saturday and Sunday. We are serving from 9am to 11:30am over the weekend with a large menu perfect to start the day. With traditional breakfasts and a couple of new additions we’ve accompanied it with some amazing coffee from Local Suppliers York Coffee Emporium. Lawrence and the team have been supplying Ainsty Inns since the beginning (nearly 4 years now) and it’s a true testament to how good their coffee is.

With lots of choice and the perfect coffee to wash it down with what are you waiting for? We’ll see you at the weekend!
