Excellent setting with food to match. The service was very good and they made a special effort given it was my grandmas 91st birthday.

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.

Great food, ambiance and service!, amazing experience

Incredible. The Garden Room is beautiful and I've never found a fully vegan afternoon tea that actered to my food intolerances before! My sister was actually jealous that the vegan one looks so much more colourful and exciting than the regular afternoon tea. It was my sisters birthday and they brought a birthday brownie and honeycomb platter out, hand messaged with white chocolate at no extra cost. Not rushed to leave at all, we sat for a few hours getting through the food and ordering mroe coffee. Would definitely go again.

Myself and 2 family members had afternoon tea here and it was the best we have ever had. The food was amazing and the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful.

Overall we were not satisfied with the Afternoon Tea. The sandwiches had a strange taste which was not to our taste. The scones were dry and the cakes were too sweet. The tea and the soup was good.

Booking was very easy.
My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our twilight tea in the garden room. We sat by a window looking to the garden and the Minster. Service was efficient, friendly and informative. Sandwiches, scones and the cakes were lovely and I will certainly be booking again.
