Building record MYO4024 - The Magnet PH

Summary

Public house, built in 1934 by John Smith’s Brewery architect Sir Bertram Wilson. Nominated for the Local List of heritage assets by CAMRA because it is the best surviving example in York of an inter-war ‘Improved’ pub, purpose-built to serve the surrounding new housing estate. CAMRA comment that the snug has its original furniture and is largely unaltered; the Bar notably retains its arched back fitting and bench seating; while the Lounge, though altered, retains original woodwork beneath modern veneer. Also of particular interest is a glazed dividing screen and tilework to an obsolete outsales, and tilework in the Gents toilet.
