WELCOME TO PLONKERS WINE BAR & BISTRO IN YORK.
Since the early 1980’s, Plonkers has been serving high quality homecooked food, combined with an unparalleled number of quality Beers, Wines and Spirits. We pride ourselves on being completely independent, which allows us to use the best of local produce, untied to any suppliers or chains. We source our meat, fish and vegetables locally, and serve and support many local breweries and drinks makers.
We continue to be family owned and run, and we strive to bring that family feel to our premises – both inside our rather unique building and out on the Riverside.

The name Plonkers, comes from the word Plonk, which was used to describe cheap French table wine in the 1980s (although research suggests the Aussies coined the word before the Brits!). Plonkers Wine Bar has been around since those early 1980’s times and is now into its 3rd set of owners over that period. Its character has developed over that time and the hard work of many has turned it into the truly unique experience our customers enjoy today.
