The Printer's Apprentice

  • York, UK

York's latest addition to the hospitality industry; a restaurant with many hidden gems for you to discover. Established within Thomas Gent's original coffee house, which is the oldest in the city. We serve not only the finest coffee in the land but also an alchemy of unique cocktails, perfectly paired with our forward-thinking food. It is not only the building that is concealed along York’s longest snickleway, Coffee Yard; many features of the past are covertly scattered throughout Mr Gent’s shop, we invite to try and spot them all.

Enjoy rustic, European cuisine in our open kitchen bistro; expect entertainment as well as delicious food here when you dine. Or how about hiding away from the world in our self-serve wine cellar when you just need peace and quiet with that glass of red.

Host to 'Mr Browns fantastic tales of York' walking tours, our aim is to make each of your city visits unforgettable. Every element throughout the building has been carefully intentioned to create an experience unlike any other.

Expect a personalised affair from the moment you walk through the door, with touches of history that stay true to the heart of the building. The past, present and future merge seamlessly with menu items unlike anything seen before. So whether you’re with us for a quick drink or the whole evening, it’s your first time through the door or you’re a regular, we guarantee you will leave with a smile on your face and a desire to come back for more. And like all the greatest things in this world and the next… "The Devil is in the details".
