Park House is located at the very heart of the beautiful Whiteknights Campus, between Eat at the Square and the Students’ Union building in one of the stunning historic houses of the former Whiteknights Park Estate.

Park House has the feel of a quintessential English Country Pub due to the period nature of the building with an extensive bar menu of pub classics such as steak, battered fish and traditional pies. We serve a fantastic range of quality wines and real ales to suit as well as also specialising in malt whisky and gins.

Park House is in the 2019 Good Beer Guide, as recommended by CAMRA.

We have a large outdoor seating area as well as being suited on the corner of the rolling meadows down to the lakes 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.
