Pizza Express, River House

Pizza Express, River House


Based on Lendal Bridge and overlooking the River Ouse in the heart of this historic city, York River House recently re-opened following a beautiful refurbishment.

Drawing inspiration from the building’s history as a Victorian gentleman’s club, the overall design of the restaurant has been carefully crafted to accentuate the original features of the stunning listed building. Striking new details include elegant settle seating and a beautiful new leather-clad meet and greet area - even the toilets have been carefully restored to reflect the building’s Victorian past. A combination of rich, bold paint colours throughout creates an atmosphere of warmth and sophistication. New floor lamps, neon fireplace flame lights and grand chandeliers create a more subtle lighting scheme, complementing the listed oak panelling of the central dining rooms.

An array of copper-accentuated features, including pendants and pot displays, also adorn the restaurant. Bespoke gold and timber-framed artwork is installed throughout, connected to the general theme of the building’s previous life as the York Club: the famed gentleman’s club.
