the inspiration

The restaurant’s expertly designed interior pays homage to the pioneering spirit of the inspiring engineers and architects of York’s past.

The ironwork, original oak paneling and blueprint murals remind us of the legacy left by those who helped shape York’s rich history. Our Grade II listed building oozes with the individuality and age of Edwardian England.


the HEAD chef

“I am inspired by the processes of the pioneers of York’s past; those individuals who turned their imagination into reality, which can now be seen in iconic buildings, revolutionary railways and the heritage of this great city. I am delighted by the opportunity to look at things through a new lens, delivering traditional ingredients in an exciting new style whilst fully utilising the great produce Yorkshire has to offer.” Ahmed Abdalla.
