The Nook is a street food kitchen found at 3a Castlegate. We serve quality, stand-out food from around the world in a cosy liscenced bar. Tucked away from the main hustle and bustle, we are only a couple of minutes walk from both the City Centre and Clifford’s Tower. Take a break from exploring York, come to eat, drink, study or relax, and please feel free to bring your dog!

We care about food and cook every meal fresh to order. Each and every one of our dishes has been meticulously chosen and taste tested to embody the spirit, flavour and culinary heritage that imbues some of the most exciting street food to be found across the glove. Our bar boasts an ever-evolving selection of top tier craft beers, innovative staff-led cocktails, and a large range of quality spirits and seasonal wines. We also pride ourselves on our selection of ethical soft drinks, locally roasted coffee and loose leaf teas.

We love the community feel of York and hope to bring that community from the streets to The Nook, using local suppliers wherever possible, and hosting regular live music and poetry nights with local performers.
