Our restaurant and rooms were significantly affected in the basement and low level areas by the flooding on 27 December 2015. Regrettably, we are unable to open for business until the restoration & refurbishment works are complete.

Whilst the website will not be updated on a daily basis if there is no further information to report, rest assured as soon as we do have any further information or a firm reopening date we will update the website immediately. This page and the information contained is current and up to date on any given day.

Work is continuing to progress steadily, but as yet we do not have a more specific date for reopening. Whilst our ongoing efforts may not be evident from the outside of the building, rest assured we are working tirelessly behind the scenes to repair the damage and reinstate our properties as soon as possible. Due to both the extent of the damage and the number of our properties affected, the work has taken longer than any of us envisaged to complete.

Unfortunately some structural damage to our building caused by the flood water delayed us from moving forward with restoration works in this particular area, due to the complexity of the issues involved and the proximity of our building to the river Foss. These structural repairs are now complete. York residents and visitors to the City may well have noticed that the scaffolding which had been in place for many months has now been removed from the riverside elevation of our building. We are now completing restoration works within the buildings.

If you are in receipt of a gift voucher for the restaurant or rooms, please be assured that our vouchers have no expiry date and will of course be accepted as a method of payment when we reopen. If you would prefer to receive a refund for any voucher purchased prior to our closure, under the circumstances we are happy to provide a refund to the purchaser via the original method of payment. Please contact us directly via email and we can advise the procedure for a refund request.

Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience our continued closure may cause.
