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.
