Café No.8 at York Art Gallery

We are delighted to offer the Café No.8 experience at the nearby York Art Gallery in partnership with the York Museums Trust.

Enjoy a fabulous al fresco experience in our outdoor seating area, overlooking the beautiful fountain to the front of the Gallery on Exhibition Square. Glance up to see York Theatre Royal, Petergate and the adjoining City Walls, and, of course, the magnificent York Minster.

Serving breakfasts, cakes, light bites and lunches and a variety of drinks, we offer the perfect start or end to your visit to the Gallery. And of course, we are just as happy to see you even if you’re not visiting the Gallery!
