Yorkshire Real Ale at Kennedy’s Bar and Restaurant

We are always keen to champion Kennedy’s Bar and Restaurant, located next door to The Fort, as it offers amazing food and a great selection of drinks. In fact they have just teamed up with The Great Yorkshire Brewery and are proud suppliers of Yorkshire Lager.

After many years of experimenting, with help from around the globe, The Great Yorkshire Brewery produces the UK’s first Yorkshire lager: made from Yorkshire water, British barley, malt, yeast and whole hops.

As a guest at The Fort we’d like to remind you that you receive a complimentary 20% discount of all food at Kennedy’s Bar and Restaurant, so why not head over when you’ve unpacked and try not only their locally sourced food but now locally sourced lager.

If you fancy heading over to The Great Yorkshire Brewery’s website you will see that they have kindly provided a link to not only Kennedy’s, but also us here at The Fort. Thanks guys!


The Fort extends to offer an even more luxurious experience

If you have checked out our blog before you will no doubt be aware that we listen to what our guests tell us and ultimately act on any improvements suggested; our latest development fills us with excitement, as we feel it will provide you with the ultimate hostel experience – the superior dorm room.

Ever since The Fort opened its doors last July, it has been obvious that the most popular room has, and still is, the log cabin dorm room. Now, this might seem pretty obvious, seen as we are a hostel, but we also offer some rather fabulous double rooms.  As a result of this we decided to provide another dorm room.

The latest addition to The Fort provides you with not only a luxurious finish, but your own private kitchen, bathroom and lounge. With three bunk beds, this room would be ideal for a group booking; kicking off your shoes after a day of sight seeing, you could unpack and then all chill out on the sofas with a snack prepared in the kitchen, before heading out for a night of fun in the city.

Alternatively the room provides a great base for those that aren’t travelling in a large group, enabling you to mingle in the social space, complete with complimentary Wi-Fi.

With prices from £29pppn then why not book into the dorm that offers you the ultimate boutique experience, or why not surprise your friends and book the entire dorm to for a trip to remember!

We would encourage group bookings to plan in advance, as the superior dorm is proving to be incredibly popular, so as we say here at The Fort – you try getting in!
