Popped in here late for a drink only. The staff were efficient, friendly and polite, but I felt the place was trying too hard to be American. All the beers seemed to be from the US and were unknown to me, and the staff were...More

First of all, The Living Room has been rebranded as Missoula Bar and Grill. But this wasn't just a simple renaming with updated decor. The menu underwent some reworking and while we were fans of the old living room, we have to say that the...More

The Living Room York is situated on the first floor within the new riverside Merchant Exchange development on Bridge Street adjacent to the Ouse Bridge. With fabulous views across the river Ouse, it has quickly become a favourite neighbourhood hangout in the city centre. Dine on a range of affordable hit dishes such as the crispy duck wrap, sea bass on a bed of ratatouille and wild rocket, and Thai salmon fishcakes. Drinks go down just as well as the food, probably because there���s always something new to try from the monthly beer, wine and cocktails list.
