Café No.8 at York Art Gallery

Café No.8 is closed at York Art Gallery until further notice. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this might cause.

Why is the café closed?

The café at York Art Gallery was run on a contract basis for York Museums Trust by Café No.8 Catering Ltd. On 23 December 2018, Café No. 8 Catering Ltd informed the Trust that they had ceased trading. We have since been informed that Café No.8 Catering Ltd ceased trading and has gone into liquidation.

This is very disappointing for the Trust as the café had earned a good reputation and was an important aspect of the visitor experience at York Art Gallery.

The Trust will be seeking a short term solution to provide at least a ‘coffee and cake’ service. A tender process to find a new partner to run the café at York Art Gallery will be undertaken.

We apologise to our regular visitors for any inconvenience whilst arrangements are put in place.
