The Press Kitchen


The Press Kitchen can be found on Walmgate within Yorks's walled city centre and is a licensed all-day cafe bar. It is deceptively large with six very different dining areas split over two floors - including a sun-filled courtyard. This allows us to retain an intimate & cozy feel with an area to suit all occasions & moods.

Our menu is eclectic and accessible. Thai noodles sit side by side with pasta dishes, a Mexican breakfast, meat platters..... and even a suet pudding. This may seem a little random but there is a theme. Our management team collectively has decades of restaurant industry experience and the menu represents the type of dishes we all like to cook & enjoy when we have time at home.

All dishes are prepared on site in our open kitchen from fresh ingredients: our only freezer is for ice-cream! We have no microwaves & the heart of the kitchen is our set-up of two cooking planchas (one veggie & one not!) which lends itself perfectly to our style of cooking at The Press. Needless to say our eggs & chicken are all Free Range & our meat is ethically reared & fully traceable.

To accompany the food offer we have curated an extensive wine list from around the world with over thirty wines available by the glass. There is no need to compromise with a "house" wine as there isnt one. All wines are kept under cork - as we believe that is how it should be - and all are exceptional examples of their type.
