Our story

Being local at heart is the order of the day at the Refectory Kitchen & Terrace, with seasonal dishes that are bursting with flavour, whilst championing the world-class quality of ingredients found throughout Yorkshire and the Yorkshire dales.

The Refectory adjoins the new Chapter House bar, which sports a fine selection of wines, spirits, craft ales and cocktails.

Situated next to York train station, the Refectory Kitchen & Terrace sits comfortably in the Grade II listed Principal York hotel which dates back to 1878. This latest addition, which includes an outdoor terrace, comes from award-winning architects Michaelis Boyd, whose previous work includes London’s Groucho Club and Soho House Group.

We're now open and look forward to welcoming you back to The Refectory Kitchen & Terrace. Please note, for the time being, we're operating a bookings only policy.

The safety and wellbeing of our guests and colleagues is our top priority, and ready for when we reopen to the public, we have implemented new hygiene procedures above and beyond our standard protocols, as well as social distancing measures, in line with government and public health advice. We've also introduced the IHG Clean Promise giving guests extra reassurance. Find out more at www.ihg.com/clean
