About 31 Castlegate Restaurant York
31 Castlegate is one of York’s few small independent restaurants, and has been open since 2005.
Housed in the former house of Georgian architect G.T Andrews, it dates back to around 1825/26. It is probably the earliest surviving purpose built architects office. It is a Grade II listed building, and also an English Heritage Monument. It has impressive period features and décor throughout, chiefly the original fireplaces in the main Dining room and bar area. It also sits in the shadow of the ever impressive, Clifford’s Tower, one of York’s major landmarks.
All dishes are cooked using the finest local ingredients and the menus are written to utilise seasonal produce. The menu reflects the experience and knowledge I have gained during my career, which has included L’Escargot (Marco Pierre White) in London, the Head Chef at Tivoli Cunard Vista Fjord and the Head Chef at Durham Ox, Crayke.31 Castlegate Restaurant is open daily serving a tempting and varied range of lunch and snacks in the main 19th Century dining room.
For the evening 31 Castlegate is transformed into an elegant candlelit restaurant serving predominantly European a la carte dishes, which are complemented by our extensive range of New and Old Wines.
31 Castlegate has a private dining space within the main restaurant, which is available for parties up to 16 people.To sample 31 Castlegate Restaurant, my staff and I are offering a Set Menu from 5.30-9.30pm, two courses for £15.95 or three for £17.95, Sunday, Tuesday-Friday and 5.30-7pm on Saturday.
