TUESDAY 18TH MAY – CHARITY DINNER FOR YORKMIND

Join us  to raise money for York Mind – one of York’s leading providers of mental health services. This is a very important cause to us, especially within this past year when many people have struggled, so we want to help any way we can!
.
This is the perfect opportunity to catch up with family & friends who you may not have seen in the past 12 months. Our 3 course Anglo-French menu will showcase some of our favourite dishes, using some of the finest, locally sourced produce. All proceeds from this food menu will go to the charity.

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.

ABOUT US

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).

OUR BUILDING

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.

Parties

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

Especially in our Loft – seating up to 50 guests!
