The Blue Bicycle


At the turn of the century our cellar was a brothel of some repute. In fact if you wander downstairs, you will see photographs of some of the girls, who perhaps, plied their wares. We also serve romantic dinners in the private vaulted booths (or beds) for two, which are situated in the opulent and atmospheric dining area. Please note that the downstairs dining area is generally only open on Friday & Saturday evenings.

You can enjoy a pre-dinner tipple overlooking the River Foss, reflecting on this bygone era of impropriety. The upstairs dining area exudes warmth and a busy atmosphere, with an eclectic range of tables and chairs, all beautifully presented. Lunch or Dinner with us is a high quality dining experience in exemplary surroundings, set in an intriguingly historic building, even by York’s standards.
