Food & Drink

The Refectory Kitchen & Terrace sits within the Grade II-listed Principal York Hotel which dates back to 1878. Adjacent to York station and just a short stroll from the historic York city centre, the restaurant sources the very best seasonal ingredients, with an emphasis on local Yorkshire produce.

Restaurant favourites include Moorland Tomme-crusted pork fillet with sweet potato, crispy shallots and sherry vinegar, Yorkshire ale cottage pie, short rib mac ‘n’ cheese and a selection of steaks from R&J Butchers. Finish your meal with a sweet treat – a modern take on the Yorkshire Parkin is the restaurant’s signature dessert.

On Sundays, the Refectory Kitchen & Terrace serves up a traditional roast with meat from R&J Family Butchers. The chefs also create weekly specials, so you’ll find something new every week. The modern, light-flooded dining room was created in partnership with leading London restaurateur Des McDonald, with further seating available on the outdoor terrace in warmer weather.

With York Racecourse just 10 minutes away by car, the Refectory Kitchen & Terrace serves brunch from 11am – 1pm on race days, with live music in the next door Chapter House bar.
