Since its opening in 2005, 31 Castlegate has been delighting York locals and visitors from all across the UK, owing to its gourmet European cuisine and its elegant interior. Situated in a historic house, smackdab in the centre of York, this fine restaurant is perfect for an evening of romance or a dinner party for a gathering of friends. Find the restaurant, obviously enough, along Castlegate in the city centre, just steps from River Foss and Clifford’s Tower. 31 Castlegate invites you to visit every day of the week except for Monday.
Chef patron Nick Julius and his talented crew are excited to have you experience the gourmet European cuisine that he and his kitchen are whipping up daily. Using sustainable ingredients and locally made products, the kitchen at 31 Castlegate in the city centre takes great pride in supporting York’s independent businesses and culinary scene. Once the house of a Georgian architect, dating back to around 1825, 31 Castlegate provides a unique, charming environment for enjoying an unforgettable candlelit dinner. Also ideal for functions and parties, the restaurant has its very own private dining room that can be hired for one-of-a-kind celebrations.
Lunch at York’s 31 Castlegate is unbelievable value. Despite serving up some of the city’s finest European and international specialties, consisting of local and sustainable ingredients, the restaurant’s affordable prices won’t break your bank. Enjoy lunch items like a wrap stuffed with Mexican beef, onions, red peppers, avocado and a spiced tomato fondue, or go for the tasty vegetarian spicy bean burger topped with grilled halloumi. For dinner, order hearty specialties like the pan fried duck breast alongside butternut squash compote, duck potato rosti, braised red cabbage and sherry jus, then dive into desserts such as the sticky toffee pudding or a strawberry bakewell tart. Reservations are a must at this city centre restaurant!
Everything was perfect for our daughter's 21st birthday celebration - thank you. Two of us had the vegan set menu and the other 6 had the main set menu and it was all delicious, as well as good value. The staff were very welcoming and made sure it felt like a special celebration. I'd recommend it to all.
This was my first visit here. Great food and friendly staff who made us feel very welcome. Lovely birthday lunch with friends. Will definitely come again.
The food was absolutely gorgeous, the place has a lovely atmosphere and the staff were really nice, I can recommend this place highly, it’s a little gem
