Our chefs at Melton’s and The Chopping Block have come together to create another unique three course menu for £30 per person. For more information click here.

We’re still here!

We all know how tough this year has been, but we are not going anywhere! Our menu is Inspired by our Chef/Proprietor, Michael Hjort, who spent time working as Michel Roux Jr’s Sous Chef. We take locally sourced, Yorkshire produce & use it to produce homemade, French inspired dishes.

The Chopping Block upstairs, is the creation of chef proprietor Michael Hjort, the founder and owner of Melton’s, one of York’s leading fine dining restaurants. The A la Carte menu is about carefully prepared, traditional French dishes created with fresh, local produce. Our dishes are created and developed by our talented kitchen team, then tried & tested by our staff to guarantee real flavour & quality!

The Ale House is our traditional downstairs bar, where we source locally produced cask & keg beers. We support many local breweries & pride ourselves on our selection of craft cask, keg, cans & bottles. We also serve an extensive list of homemade Bar Snacks, which are available alongside our Restaurant Menu (click here for Menus).


We are in a 17th century listed building in the centre of York…along with great food, there’s lots of history and a few ghost stories!

Despite the narrow frontage (typical of buildings in central York), the building is surprisingly large occupying the three floors of an historical rope makers and saddlers shop.


This range of diverse rooms both large and intimate, makes us ideal for Parties.

Especially in our Loft – seating up to 50 guests!
