Dropped in for lunch as we were staying opposite in Zills (also recommended). Harry was knowledgeable and attentive, explaining the cheese origins and recommending accompanying drinks. We love cheese and this shop!

Description
Yorks only speacialist cheese shop and cafe. Our peaceful courtyard leads up to the city walls, with a glimpse of the minster. Our simple menu specialises in Cheeseboards, Platters and Grilled Cheese. Try our Artisan coffee from Dark Woods Roastery, or one of our carefully selected wines, beers or ciders. If there's a group of you or you're celebrating a special event why not try our cheese and wine taster menu.
