Blind Swine On Tour

Blind Swine breadBlind Swine the York restaurant that we rated the best opening of the year  is closing on lst January.

We’re dismayed, not least because we rate Michael O’Hare’s  bizarre, fun and innovative cooking, the no choice menu and even the cocktails, but all is not lost, Blind Swine are going ‘on tour’. If you want to know what that means then read on, this is from their Facebook page:

‘The Blind Swine will be closing its doors on 1st January 2014. Our lease has ended and Michael and the team are relocating in the new year details of which will be announced soon.

We are unable to take bookings until we have a definite opening date
In the mean time and over January and Febuary in true rock and roll style we will be going “on tour” filling as many dates as we can in Yorkshire and the North East

We are calling the tour SWINESTOCK. The tour will consist of ;

Pop-up nights in and around york

Guest chef nights in other restaurants

Home dinner parties

If you are interested in either coming to see us on tour
or being part of it (venues and home dinner parties)
please email for details.

Thank you everyone for your continued support we look forward to seeing you in the New Year.’

In the meantime, you may just be able to squeeze in a booking. There are no more weekend tables available in December and they are closed Sunday and Monday, so hurry if you want a table before the end of the year. Failing that, have them round to your place too cook for you. It should be a riot.  Tel: 01904 634825
