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 short rib mac ‘n’ Swaledale cheese, shepherd's pie with 12-hour braised lamb shoulder, R&J Butchers game burger with red cabbage and beetroot slaw, and a selection of steaks, also 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.

    Warm welcome, friendly service. Salmon starter very good, my curry just right on spicing. Chose the right place for birthday meal for my husband. Only downside slightly chilly but in time of Covid felt airy.

    Our visit to The Refectory was a Christmas present from one of our sons as we are frequent visitors to York. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience there. The food was lovely and the staff were very attentive. We went on Saturday lunchtime and the only thing I would have liked was to have a little more choice on the menu.
