Restaurant description

Twilight tea at The Principal York Hotel is a unique, luxurious and quintessentially British treat. This stunning Grade-II listed building sits in the city centre, with diners given spectacular views of the hotel gardens.

The Principal York Twilight tea is an evening alternative to traditional twilight tea, a lighter, later afternoon tea experience including finger sandwiches, scone selection, jam and playful petit fours with a sharing cocktail tea pot.

The Principal York is a wonderfully luxurious British treat, and is just a one-minute walk from York Rail Station.

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    As soon as you walk into the Royal York you can see how fabulous the hotel is, the staff we very friendly and couldn't do enough for you. We had some Cocktails at the bar, which were delightful! It was Afternoon tea at the garden room that we had booked for my friends hen do, it was so different to any I have been to before but the food was scrumptious. The only thing I will comment on though is there was not enough sandwiches and too many scone, but that did not detract from the quality of the food. Overall it was a lovely experience I would recommend to all!

    We visited here for afternoon tea on mothers day.The hotel is stunning. We were seated in lovely comfy chairs. In a very spacious room. We especially loved the extra starter plate that came out before the cakes scones and sandwiches. Would reccomend and love to go back. Great experience.

    The décor was fabulous. Afternoon tea was declared the best they had ever had by someone who has taken tea at The Ritz and The Berkley!
