Award-Winning Breakfasts

Best B&B – The People’s Choice – UPDATE

Although we didn’t win the title of ‘Best B&B’ we were very satisfied on this occasion to be amongst only 5 finalists for this award, across an enormous range of accommodation providers in the city. I’ts wonderful that people are recognising the improvements we have made to Guest House with many newly refurbished rooms.

This now spurs us on to complete our Guest House refurbishment during 2015 to coincide with the launch of The Convent as a Living Heritage Centre. We look forward to returning in future years and hopefully winning the award on another occasion. Thank you all for voting for us, we were greatly encouraged by so much support.

Business 4 Breakfast Networking Expands

Business 4 Breakfast (B4B) has prospered at The Bar since the first meeting 18 months ago, leading to the opening of a second group. It attracts approximately 25 people per week from all sorts of professional and trade backgrounds and allows members to meet and be introduced to each other’s networks of contacts in a structured format. It works because the informal setting allows members to get to know each well, build trust and enjoy arguably the best bacon sandwiches in York on a Friday morning!

B4B meetings are every Friday morning between 7-8.30am, if you would like more information or want to come along to a free taster session call James Foster on 01904 643238.

Redecoration Work Completed

Every 5 years the Bar Convent is fully redecorated externally. It is no small task as the entire building is surrounded in sections for 3 months as each section is surveyed, remedial joinery and slating repairs are undertaken and finally redecorated. On this occasion further improvements were made to the building to add new Digital TV aerials and guttering improvements. It has been a challenge however the final result has really improved the appearance of the building.

Why not come and have a look if you haven’t been for some time?
