About us

Inspired by visits to small, family run restaurants in France, Spain and Italy, we provide a small seasonal menu featuring local produce when possible. The beauty is in the detail, with melt-in-the-mouth steaks, fish cooked to perfection, al dente vegetables and interesting vegetarian options, delicately balancing flavours throughout.

Good food served in an intimate atmosphere. The restaurant has been formed from two georgian houses, built in the minster precinct in 1838. Enjoy your evening meal in one of the most impressive settings in Yorkshire.
