The Chopping Block 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 food with real flavour and authenticity using Yorkshire produce and Michael’s favourite recipes.  In addition there are daily specials, a great value set menu and homemade Bar snack served in the Ale House below the restaurant (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!   In addition to our regular menus we also serve brunch from 9.30am Saturday and Sunday and traditional Roasts on Sunday, from 12pm and available until the end of the day. You can book on-line.

Despite the narrow frontage (typical of buildings in central York), the building is surprisingly large occupying the three flours of an historical rope makers and saddlers shop.  This range of diverse rooms both large and intimate, makes us ideal for Parties.

The Ale House on the ground floor offers a range of Yorkshire Ales, Lagers and Cider as well as our extensive Wine List. Relax in our Games Room and enjoy our Bar Snacks,  The Chopping Block is above the Ale House, and above both there’s a great party space, the Loft.
