More Reasons to Go

  • Afternoon tea is served in the courtyard or the garden terrace and includes home-made cakes and scones fresh from the café's kitchen.
  • The hall dates back to the 1390s and its long history is closely tied to that of York Minster—it originally served as the dining hall for the Vicars Choral, and in more recent years has been a bakery and a butchers.
  • Restoration of the hall began in 1979 and features like stone masonry and timber framing provide an insight into the hall's Medieval past.
  • "A fine history is hidden within the walls of York's Bedern Hall, with a treasure trove of stories just waiting to be told" (The Yorkshire Post).

The location was tucked away behind a main street not far from the Minster. It was very quiet but steeped in history. The cream tea was excellent with freshly made sandwiches and home baked cakes and scones. More than enough for 2 people.
Other Comments
We visited the hall after our cream tea and were met by a volunteer guide who explained the history and background to the hall which avoided being demolished when the new housing estate was built to replace the slum housing. All in all it was a very enjoyable and informative visit. Would highly recommend the experience if available.

The cakes and scones were fresh and very nice. The voucher price with the glass of prosecco was not unreasonable.
Other Comments
I don't like to give poor reviews, but was unimpressed by this experience. Contrary to images of a medieval hall, the food venue was lacking in atmosphere in a rather bland room. We were not offered the opportunity to eat outside which other guests had. Service was functional and not particularly attentive.
