40-year-old Vandalia pub to reopen with full menu, spiked peach iced tea and more for carryout

Little York Tavern will offer pickup, delivery 7 nights a week.



Pie will soon fly at a local pub that has built a reputation over the last 40 years for its patio and live music.

And even though outdoor seating and bands aren’t part of the reopening yet, something peachy will be on the menu.

Little York Tavern & Pizza, runner-up in the best patio category in Dayton.com 2019/20 Best of Dayton contest,  is planning to reopen for carryout and delivery services at 4 p.m. Monday, April 27, according to owner Matt Hentrick.

Little York is located at 4120 Little York Road just off I-75.

The restaurant’s new hours will be 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
