Where to eat in York

If you're looking for refreshments during a visit or a place to meet family and friends, plan your day out and where to eat. Enjoy a light lunch to a hot meal and the occasional scone (of course).

Stone walled cafe with people seated

Step below stairs at Treasurer's House 

It's free to head downstairs to the café, right in the heart of York and next door to York Minster. Opening times match the historic house above. Expect a new smaller menu, in the same historic venue.

Pick up a hot or cold drink, and choose from a selection of confectionary to add to your picnic. Enjoy as you wander, take a seat on the terrace or find a bench to pause on.
