Nestled in the middle of the Whiteknights Campus, Park House is one of the historic houses of the former Whiteknights Park Estate. Our Park House bar offers a warm and welcoming atmosphere, specialising in local craft beer, ales, whiskey & wines. We have a large outdoor seating area making it the perfect location for a quiet drink in the evening sun for staff, visitors (including well-behaved dogs) and students of the University.
