About us

Being local at heart is the order of day at the Refectory Kitchen & Terrace, with seasonal dishes that are bursting with flavour whilst championing the world-class quality of ingredients found across Yorkshire. Serving lunch and dinner seven days a week, the Refectory Kitchen & Terrace has been conceived and developed by London restaurateur Des McDonald. The a la carte menu includes Rump of Yorkshire Dales lamb with hot pot potatoes; Whitby slip soles; and Bridlington scampi, with Stem ginger Parkin for pudding, or a slice of Kit Calvert Wensleydale with Ampleforth fruitcake.

The Refectory adjoins the Chapter House bar, which sports a fine selection of wines, spirits, craft ales and cocktails. Pre-dinner tipples also take a distinctively local stance, such as the Duke of York (Lanson Père et Fils Champagne, suffused with mandarin liqueur and grenadine) and the Yorkshire Twister (rum, maraschino, grapefruit and ginger).

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 graces London’s Groucho Club and Soho House Group.

EXECUTIVE CHEF
Nick Evans has joined The Principal York hotel from Middlethorpe Hall. As Executive Chef, Nick oversees all of the menus and kitchens, with those for The Refectory Kitchen & Terrace at the very heart. Nick has worked with Des McDonald and his team to create a moreish, seasonal menu that is packed with local produce.
